Highlights: we wonder where our flying car (and Space Shuttle replacement) is, wonder if concentration of political power might have affected past commitment to exploration, discuss the fine line between hope and faith, lament missed opportunities to meet Dr. Sagan, and worry about Vincenzo’s lost life. We’re joined by guest Dr. Eric Korpela.
