You’ve heard us talk about capsules, you’ve heard us talk about space suits, well today we take a look at the only currently in use reusable space craft. It’s a not a bird, its not a plane – It’s the US Space Shuttle. And to make it interesting – we’ve sent Scott Miller, Astronomy Cast student web developer, down to watch the launch so he can bring us back us first hand story.http://feeds2.feedburner.com/~r/astronomycast/~4/s8J4rHCo9Qw

Come back Fraser, please! This show was awful. It was full of inane giggling and poor sound. It needs your control

I actually thought Scott did a good job once he got started.

I really appreciated his enthusiasm for the topic at hand.

Hi All,
Scott, I thought you did a terrific job with Pamela on the Space Shuttle episode. I loved your obvious interest in and enthusiasm for the topic. Of course we miss Fraser, but I thought you filled in well.

Ricardo, do be a bit careful about throw-away comments. I'm sure you didn't mean to, but you may have hurt Scott with your comment. Obviously he has less experience reporting than Fraser, but for a first-time podcaster I thought he handled himself well.

I hope all is well with the Astronomy Cast team. Thanks for all the hard work over the past couple of years.

Actually my main gripe was with Pamela. I dunno why, but (IMO) she really came across badly in that episode. As I said before, very giggle. Almost to the point of unprofessionalism. If that had been the first episode of Astronomycast I had listened to, I'd not have come back for more.

It's funny you didn't like it, some people said it was actually one of their favorite episodes so far. I've never seen a shuttle launch live, so I just can't replicate Scott's knowledge and personal experience about it. Although... I plan to attend a launch, if I can. :-)

I'll be the counter argument here. This was a fine episode. I really had the feel of being there watching the launch based on the descriptions. Yes, they did end up with only superlatives but that's the whole point! Viewing a Space Shuttle launch is an amazing experience and I got that from this episode.

As usual, good work.
