October 4th, 2019

Have you ever wondered what happens behind the scenes at NASA? Jason got a first hand experience. He got to meet with engineers and employees on a private tour of the NASA compound. In today’s episode we are going to share some expert interviews and information from the ground level at NASA.  We meet retired electrical engineer Lamar Russell who shares what it was like working as an engineer during the Apollo missions, how to make risk assessments, lunar orbits, and the top virtues it takes to work for NASA.  We also hear from Regina Spellman, senior project manager for the launch pad.  She speaks with us about the new launch pad which just got new lightning arrestors, flame deflector, flame trench, and Emergency Egress systems.  We learn how rockets at the Kennedy Space Center are protected from the frequent lighting in Florida. We learn about the vehicle assembly building and how the rockets are put together before the being launched. There was so much great stuff on this tour that this episode will be divided up into 2 parts. Join us for our next episode, NASA behind the scenes part II. Where we learn about agricultural plans for growing food on Mars, how NASA is working on building a colony on the moon to use as a springboard for visiting Mars, we learn about the gigantic pair of crawlers that are used to transport the rockets and shuttles and other information about future endeavors at NASA.
