Correction: It is stated in the episode that cubesats do not have propellant. They do, and I don't know what I was thinking. My apologies. On the bright side, we will learn all about them next week!

Episode 3- JWST interview with David Hunter.

David's favorite rocket: 

Correction: There was a mention of the building number at JSC. David notified me in an email that it is actually building 9, not building 30. 

There is some RF interference in the episode. Apparently I should bring RF shielded recording equipment. I didn't even think about it. Sorry for the fuzz and occasional beeps. Pedro did a really good job of removing what he could (it was sooooo bad). Rest assured, Kikoeru-san and I have already taken measures to ensure that it does not happen again. 

Thanks to COPY  for providing the music used in this show. As mentioned the song is called "Remembering Florida" and  you should go buy all of his music. It's available here ---> Link 

Also, thanks again to David. If anyone would like to thank him, I will happily pass it on to him, and you can send your thanks to either podcast@magnificentcosmonauts.com , or you can post it in the group. 

See you next week!
