Episode 178: STS-91 - A Farewell to Mir (Bringing Thomas Home)
On STS-91 we’ll try out a new external tank, learn a little physics, and find out what Mir upper management thinks about the state of the space station. Oh, we’ll also bring Andy Thomas home and wave farewell to Mir forever.
Episode 151: STS-75 - Tethers in Space are a Snap! (TSS-1R)
On STS-75 we’ll take another try at the Tethered Satellite System. It didn’t work so great on STS-46, but with much of the same crew and it should be a snap.
