The Space Above Us

Columbia is back from the shop and is sporting some new upgrades, but seems reluctant to leave Earth on its 18th voyage. Once on orbit, we'll do some science, learn why TV is good, and perform some magic tricks!   http://thespaceabove.us http://twitter.com/SpaceAboveUs http://patreon.com/TheSpaceAboveUs

Endeavour is back on the launch pad with two payloads to both deploy and retrieve. One of those payloads looks a whole lot like a gigantic frisbee, something that would be sure to get the attention of any dog (or dog crew) nearby.   http://thespaceabove.us http://twitter.com/SpaceAboveUs http://patreon.com/TheSpaceAboveUs

On STS-70 it's time to complete the TRDSS constellation! Or at least the first generation. We'll also resist putting fish eggs on crackers, buy some decoy owls, and wonder why so many people from Ohio are trying to escape Earth.   http://thespaceabove.us http://twitter.com/SpaceAboveUs http://patreon.com/TheSpaceAboveUs

Norm Thagard is about to become America's first Cosmonaut. What challenges will he encounter during his four months on the Russian space station Mir? And why are they bringing so much juice?   http://thespaceabove.us http://twitter.com/SpaceAboveUs http://patreon.com/TheSpaceAboveUs

Twenty years after the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project, four years after the collapse of the Soviet Union, and around a hundred days after the launch of Norm Thagard, it's time to finally see a space shuttle dock with Mir.   http://thespaceabove.us http://twitter.com/SpaceAboveUs http://patreon.com/TheSpaceAboveUs

The Space Above Us

ASTRO-1 was a huge success, shining new light (more or less literally) on the universe with its ultraviolet observatory. But that was almost 30 flights ago. It's time for the new and improved ASTRO-2 to see what's out there. We'll also answer that question I'm sure everyone was wondering: which moon is ugliest? http://thespaceabove.us http://twitter.com/SpaceAboveUs http://patreon.com/TheSpaceAboveUs

No, it's not a glitch in the Matrix, we're flying the same experiment on the same shuttle! Don't worry, we still find plenty to say. Oh, and Jupiter's about to explode, so that's pretty cool. http://thespaceabove.us http://twitter.com/SpaceAboveUs

Discovery has the Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite in the payload bay, and it's ready to learn all about the stratosphere and mesosphere! This episode was originally going to have a story about the mission commander trying to ski in space but I ran out of time!
