TIS#126 Space Shuttle Talk with Jerry Goodson
In this episode, Alex was joined by Jerry Goodson for some Space Shuttle Talk. Jerry Goodson worked on the Space Shuttle Program for over 35 years and worked all the way from being a technician in the aft section of the spacecraft to Launch Test Conductor. This episode is a great starting point for anyone who wants to learn about the Space Shuttle. We covered the three major stages of the shuttle - development, orbital missions, and building the ISS. Jerry gave a breakdown of the Columbia and Challenger disasters. We discussed the expectations vs. realities of reusability with Shuttle, triple redundancy, and the impact that retiring the Space Shuttle had on the average American's perception of NASA today. We also dive into discussions about where the Space program goes now without the Space Shuttle, and the difficulties of running a Space program. SPACE TALK WITH NO LIMITS WWW.TODAYINSPACE.NET
