Your Heard Tell Show is turning down the noise of the news cycle and getting to the information we need to discern our times by covering the latest news from outer space, or at least what man is doing to keep going up there. Our own resident space expert Dr. Michael Siegel returns to Heard Tell to talk about NASA and Boeing’s Starliner finally getting a crew off the ground, Space X’s Starship going up and coming back in (mostly) one piece, and the inevitable comparisons between the two. Plus, since both missions had issues, Michael discusses from his own experience being on the team that runs a spacecraft mission what it is like to problem solve and issue in space. Plus we talk about the evolution of rockets, the realities of moon and Mars colonization, and the future of space, NASA, and mankind’s eternal quest to go to the stars.

All that and more on this episode of Heard Tell.
