Space:

  • it’s the last frontier AND in some way the least popular frontier. A couple years of effective shuttle bus launches passed undetected. A variety of orbital science experiments didn’t excite any person. Even the Space Race wasn’t the nation-gripping drama we chose it was retroactively. Why isn’t area travel catching more creativities? Why aren’t &individuals more stired about it? And would it assist if we did a rad podcast episode about the most kickass exploits in
  • all of area history?

    On today’s episode of The Cracked Podcast, Alex Schmidt is signed up with by’American Dad’author, Cracked legend, and prince of &all our hearts Soren Bowie for an event of deep space heroics. They’ll go into the death-defying(and often, death-receiving) bravery that’s driven years of area expedition, despite the fact that just a couple of those strong explorers ended up being well-known in the after-effects. Plus, take pleasure in an unique perk story of how the best people headed out into deep space in the kind of an area probe.
