A Monday episode, just like the good old times. This week we go over a plethora of news, including Rocket Lab's planned Electron Launch, Buzz Aldrin's opinion on the ISS, Falcon Heavy's core booster test and more.
On this week's episode of CosmoCast, Jarrod and Pedro discuss the recent developments surrounding Vector Space, and go over some of their own sombre predictions about NASA, which sadly proved to be correct.
Hello everyone! Finally we have a more lighthearted episode. We talk about Hubble that celebrated it's 27th anniversary, we also talk about the new ARCA rocket, the Lyrid meteor shower, Vector-R imminent launch. Our main topic is the Cassini epic mission finale.
In episode 43 of CosmoCast, we follow up on last week's topic of the US-proposed "space police", and discuss the recent disappearance of the invaluable source of technical information that was standards.nasa.gov.
In episode 42 of CosmoCast, Jarrod and Pedro talk about the recent announcement of a rough date for Falcon Heavy's maiden flight, Orbital ATK's new rocket lineup, and the troubling concept of "space police".
Episode 41 will remain in history as the first CosmoCast episode, which our hosts Jarrod and Pedro recorded sitting in the same room, and what better topic to celebrate the event with, than their mutual enmity towards space planes!?
Days before Jarrod's departure for Portugal, the duo go over TGO's maneuvers, Cygnus' delay, Kourou's unrest, Congress' post-2024 ISS plans and Falcon 9's first reused booster set to launch a second time.
This week we talk about the European mission to Jupiter and it's moons and of course that we analyze this proposal for the NASA budget and what does it mean for the current and upcoming projects. Spoiler alert, it doesn't look so good.
This week we have a news only episode. We talk about the 2017 EA and it's danger close flyby over our planet, the new amazing and highly detailed picture of Earth. We also talk about the Dreamchaser upcoming tests, the New Glenn, Europa Clipper (yay they kept the name), NASA's new budget, Pan's new picture and the SpaceX static fire test for the Echostar launch.

In today's reality, traffic jams, long commutes and the skyrocketing prices of fuel and rent are among the heaviest burdens on city dwellers. A German aviation startup may hold the solution to all four.
The JWST is a next generation space telescope, with 7 times the collecting area of the Hubble, and 18 hexagonal mirrors making for a 6.5 meter mirror. It is also sensitive to infrared light, unlike the Hubble. This will allow the JWST to probe the formation of galaxies and stars in the early Universe, as well as planet formation.
