About this Episode

Lots of 1960's space history this week, plus some SpaceX news. Let's dive in!

My top ten space movies episode is still coming, I've decided to watch some of these movies again so I can properly rank them. I also have a decade in review episode coming soon, it's going to be a retrospective of the big events of the 2010's and a look forward to what I'm excited for in the 2020's.
