I’m Anthony Colangelo.

And here’s the megafeed of everything I’ve been doing.

Episode T+197: NASA’s Human Spaceflight Directorate Shakeup

Main Engine Cut Off

At a town hall this week, NASA announced that the Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate will be split in two: the Exploration Systems Development Mission Directorate, led by Jim Free, and the Space Operations Mission Directorate, led by Kathy Lueders. I discuss what this change might mean for the future of NASA’s human spaceflight program, and why I think it’s not something to worry about if you’re a Kathy Lueders stan.

Episode 44 - Jeff Bezos’ OnlyFans

Off-Nominal

Jake and Anthony are joined by Joe Barnard of BPS.Space to talk about what he’s been working on lately, what it’s like being a creator online these days, and various other topics like Firefly’s first launch, Virgin Galactic’s Kobayashi Maru, and what Chuck E. Cheese has been up to during the pandemic.

Episode 43 - Aggressively Undocking

Off-Nominal

Jake and Anthony are joined by Chelsea Gohd from Space.com to talk about the rarest of space events: double hot drama! Nauka, after a tumultuous week of its own, almost destroyed the ISS, and Blue Origin wrote an open letter while simulatenously losing its protest.

Episode T+194: Branson & Bezos Fly To Space

Main Engine Cut Off

Richard Branson flew to space aboard SpaceShipTwo on Virgin Galactic’s Unity 22, and Jeff Bezos flew to space aboard Blue Origin’s New Shepard 16. I share my thoughts on the flights, the vehicles, and how I’m currently looking at suborbital tourism and why it does or doesn’t matter.

Episode T+193: Marcia Smith, SpacePolicyOnline.com

Main Engine Cut Off

Marcia Smith of SpacePolicyOnline.com joins me for a round up of space policy news, including how the Biden and Nelson administrations are doing so far, things that are being overlooked or sidelined, the Senate’s NASA Authorization bill, NASA’s Human Landing System contract and the battle for funding, the space tourism learning period, and we finish with a quick look at what China and Russia have been up to lately.

Episode 42 - Bullish on the Moon

Off-Nominal

Jake is moving, and has left Anthony alone with the keys to the show. Chris Gebhardt of NASASpaceflight and Jason Davis of the Planetary Society return to the show to talk about our newest Venus armada, China’s new space station, and the space politics cold war of Artemis vs China & Russia’s International Lunar Research Station. And bizarrely, an entire segment about Ares I-X.

Episode T+192: iROSA with Matt LaPointe and Andrew Rush

Main Engine Cut Off

I’m joined by Matt LaPointe, Technical Director at Redwire’s Deployable Space Systems, and Andrew Rush, COO of Redwire, to talk about the newest upgrade to the International Space Station: the Roll-Out Solar Arrays that are currently being deployed over the course of several spacewalks.

Episode 41 - Roscosmos Shoulda Bought Bitcoin

Off-Nominal

This month, Anthony and Jake are taking it bit easier. It’s summer, everyone is excited about getting back in to the world again, and space news will be winding down a bit. It’s just the two of us, and we go through a potpourri of topics from random space stories that have caught our attention, some stray conspiracy theory talk, then talk shop about our plans for the show, our work, our lives, and more.

Episode T+189: Stephen Forbes, DARPA Blackjack Program Manager

Main Engine Cut Off

Stephen Forbes, the Program Manager for DARPA’s Blackjack project, joins me to talk about DARPA and its interaction with the rest of the Department of Defense, how they appraoch space initiatives, where Blackjack came from, where it’s going, what they hope to accomplish with it, and how it fits into the near-future of the industry.

Episode 40 - SpaceX Play Place

Off-Nominal

Miriam Kramer joins Jake and Anthony to talk about space tourism. From Inspiration4, to Axiom-1, to suborbital flights, to some future adventures we’d like to go on. And some we wouldn’t.

Episode T+186: NASA Selects Starship as Artemis Lander

Main Engine Cut Off

NASA selected SpaceX’s Starship as its ride for crew to the lunar surface as part of the Artemis program. As the Source Selection Statement outlines, Starship was selected as the sole winner because of the constrained lander budget. It’s an aggressive, interesting, and exciting move from NASA, so I have a lot of thoughts.

Episode T+184: Jake Robins on the 2021 Mars Fleet and Future Exploration

Main Engine Cut Off

Our good friend Jake Robins, host of WeMartians and my cohost on Off-Nominal, joins me to talk about the arrival and early operations of the 2021 Mars fleet—Hope, Tianwen-1, and Perseverance. Then we dig into what the future of Martian exploration looks like, including strategy, communications, sample return, and the upcoming decadal survey.

Episode 39 - Europe Saved Cassini’s Ass

Off-Nominal

Leo Enright, the guy from Irish TV, joins Jake and Anthony to talk about covering space from a non-traditional space country, how he got started covering space, some current topics including Perseverance, ESA’s new Director General, and to generally have a great time.
