About Episode 68

Without rescue plans in place, today’s space travelers will journey at their own risk. Listen to experts George Nield (former FAA) and Grant Cates (Aerospace) talk to Kreston Barron of The Center for Space Policy & Strategy about how commercial spaceflight providers and US policymakers could help improve the safety of space travel.
