    Hey, why is this episode not available for viewing in Canada?

  2. ThreeEyedKat on December 4, 2017 at 9:50 am

    I was wondering the same thing, but you can still watch it on their podcasts.

    What just changed!? Why can’t I get this video in Canada?!

    Invalid copyright claim on YouTube. I have updated the embed code to use Vimeo instead.

    $23 B for the SLS! That could have purchased about 170 Falcon Heavies. Imagine what could have been. Goodness!

    Is Blue Origin even continuing to test their New Glenn rocket? I would think that we’d be hearing about their launches. And if they are not, why not?

    You will have heard that Patreon is changing how it does business. My $2 (+35% in Canadian dollars) now breaks down this way: 2 to 13% of the $2 goes to the payment processor (although if there are people out there willing to let 13% go to the payment gateway I have no sympathy for them) and 5% of the $2 stays with Patreon. Thus a maximum of $1.86 (and probably a few pennies less) gets to TMRO. Now Patreon is adding 2.9% + 35 cents (~40 cents) on to my $2.00. Bottom line: it costs me $2.40 (+35% exchange = C$3.14) to get $1.86 to TMRO. Am I happy? Something to think about the next time you encourage your audience to “head over to Patreon…”

      I’m not super pleased with these changes. Did write a post here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/15759120 detailing how to change your pledge so it doesn’t cost you any more money. But at this point I’m looking at alternative services and open to options/ideas.

    The management process should be really scrutinized. NASA has done quite a bit with the small amount that is provided by the taxpayers. The most they ever had for funding was during the Apollo program. Ever since then, they continue to get less every year.
    Elon Musk, Bezos, and the Bigelows are going to really help fill in the gaps where NASA will not be able to do.

    Your shows are terrific.

    Happy 2018 and bring more launches. 🙂
