Low Earth Orbit Airships


We are joined by John Powell, founder of JPAerospace. 6 years ago we interviewed John on Spacevidcast (now TMRO) and it is fun to see the progress since then. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G7LQuVfDwFQ John has an interesting idea for what could be one of the safest ways to get humans to Low Earth Orbit. If he can get balloons moving fast enough!

In Space News we have:
Ariane 5 and Soyuz Launches
Goes-R Upcoming Launch
Shenzhou 11 crew returns to Earth
MESSENGER data finds massive valley on Mercury
SpaceX tests Fuel Tanks for ITS at sea
New evidence supports a subsurface ocean in Pluto
Vector Space raises additional funds

    In reference to your comments concerning the Trump episode… Why don’t you ask Pres-Elect Trump onto the show, to discuss his thoughts on the future of America in Space…
