great Podcast to listen to and they get right to the point! Every podcast is really up to date with the newest discoveries. I am not your average space geek and totally geek out listening to space nuts! also do you think its possible humans are more likely to colonize the moon or get a detailed picture of the trappist 1 planets in the future?
