Space all over the place
In this episode of our biweekly summer series we discuss space news from the past two weeks with our pal Joeri Nortier, space buff with a special eye for Russia and Asia. That means Russian nuclear engines and spysats, nukes on Mars as well, lightsails and crime in LEO, waterbears and another satellite on the Moon, and NASA not in but on Europa
Meanwhile Thys is still traveling in Asia where he encountered a new and hitherto undiscovered space agency, which was never before in contact with civilization. ;-)
