Welcome to Season 2 of The Space Shot! The podcast is moving to a new format, with a new release schedule and more long-form content. I am super excited to take this new direction and can't wait to share new stories with all of you.
In Season 2 we will explore astronomy, space law, space science, and more. Plus there will be interviews with authors, industry figures, educators, and others in the space community.
Subscribe, check out the back catalog (Season 1 has 365 episodes) and get bite-sized pieces of space history, pop culture, science, and more. Whether you're into history, science, pop-culture, or current events, there's something for you here at The Space Shot.

Today's episode is a bit different than what I've done before. The mission audio from Alan Shepard's historic flight plays for the duration of the episode, with my historical notes during the first half of the episode. The last part of today's podcast is just mission audio, the short suborbital flights for Project Mercury are the perfect length for podcasts. Enjoy! :)
