** Mission Eve: Episode 0112: Harriet Brettle

Harriet Brettle is a business analyst at Astroscale, a commercial space company dedicated to cleaning up orbital debris. Her journey into the Space industry began when, as a young girl, her dad let her down easy: being a witch was not a viable career option. But she could get excited about the planets, sciences and math, which is just what she did. Discover how Harriet went from graduating from university with a degree in mathematics, to a career in finance, to Outreach Coordinator of the Planetary Society, to that fateful day when she landed a major role as part of the Astroscale team. Harriet’s story will make you laugh, feel inspired, and most importantly, remember to never doubt yourself. Space needs Harriet. And space needs you.

** Constellations, a New Space and Satellite Innovation Podcast: 64 – The Evolving Geospatial Industry, Temporal Resolution and the Evolution of Very High Resolution Satellites

On this episode of Constellations, the podcast from Kratos, we will discuss how the advancements in earth observation satellites have impacted the geospatial industry.  We will talk about temporal resolution and cadence and explore the exciting new and unique technologies that the new generation of companies is developing. Plus, learn how very high resolution satellites have changed over the years.

Listen to Chris Tucker, Principal of Yale House Ventures talk about his experience in the geospatial industry, advancements in remote sensor systems and his experience as a member of the board of directors of the Open Geospatial Consortium and the US Geospatial Intelligence Foundation.

** The Space Show – Fri, 11/22/2019Dr. Kirby Runyon talked about “planetary nomenclature, taxonomy, the IAU and Pluto, the NASA-APL Interstellar Probe Concept Mission and much more”.

** The Space Show – Sun, 11/24/2019Dr. David Livingston led an open lines discussion with listeners.

We started out talking about TSS Annual Fundraising Campaign, my telling some fundraising and Space Show audience stories which I very much appreciated plus I asked for support for this year’s campaign to make us strong for 2020. We had several calleers on different topics from experimenting with people being put in suspended animation and attempt to apply the medical experiments to space travel. There was also a call expressing concern about all of the Elon Musk businesses and how that might impact SpaceX. The final call addressed Mach Principle research, the Woodward work on the same subject and rebooting a civilization should it be destroyed. In addition to the calls we had several emails on different topics.

Space policy roundup – Nov.22.2019

Webcasts:

** The Space ISAC, Cybersecurity and Innovation | Kratos Communications

Erin Miller, Director of Business Development at The National Cybersecurity Center in Colorado Springs, explains what the Space Information Sharing and Analysis Center (ISAC) is and why we need it. As Erin explains, a 1998 presidential directive requires the development of ISACs to protect our critical infrastructures from threats and vulnerabilities. There are about 25 different ISACs to support major industry sectors such as financial services, information technology, natural gas and others. As space transcends virtually all these sectors it was only natural that there be a Space ISAC. In this episode of Constellations, Erin will also discuss new developments and strategies to combat increasing cybersecurity and other threats to our space assets.

** Episode T+139: RemoveDEBRIS with Richard Duke – Main Engine Cut Off

Richard Duke from the Surrey Space Center joins me to talk about their RemoveDEBRIS mission, which launched last year and carried out 4 different tests focused on space debris removal and management.
