Thursday 15th February 2018. Outer Space with Carlos Rogers.
February 15, 2018
Welcome back after the Carnival holidays, we trust that everyone got back safely. To get us underway after the break, Carlos Rogers our astronomy enthusiast joins me in the last hour today. We have great fun discussing all the latest developments in space. Needless to say the orbiting Tesla and the Space X Heavy lift get a fair share of the discussion. The heavy lift rocket is apparently capable of a payload equivalent of five London Buses in low orbit, which will be great for those that cannot afford a Tesla.
