About this Episode

This is a sad week in space history. We remember the astronauts we have lost in the pursuit of exploring space and unlocking the mysteries of the universe.

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.
