Lab Rats: Outer Space Edition

Hosted by

SpaceX is scheduled to launch a rocket tomorrow to carry supplies to the International Space Station. Since the space shuttles were mothballed, the US has relied on Russian rockets. But now, just as Ukraine is causing a diplomatic rift with Russia, Space X is providing a domestic and privately-owned alternative. Also, we hear about a year-long “space twins” experiment with astronauts Mark and Scott Kelly.
