Episode T+142: T.S. Kelso, CelesTrak and AGI

Main Engine Cut Off

Last week, I took a ride out to the AGI offices and sat down with Josh Poley and T.S. Kelso. We shot a handful of videos for AGI’s YouTube channel, the longest of which was this interview right here. I talked with T.S. Kelso about the history of CelesTrak.com and satellite tracking on the internet as a whole, as well as a few topics relevant to the modern day: satellite tracking and orbit reporting among operators, conjunction and collision monitoring, and space debris mitigation and management. Be sure to follow along with AGI’s channel as the rest of the videos go live throughout the week!
