I’ve followed Jim Dunnigan’s career since he was a wargame designer in the 70s.  He now runs a website called Strategypage and below is a YouTube of his podcast.  This one is on problems with current ship designs, focusing in part on the LCS (Little Crappy Ships.)

They did it again.  This time with a used booster and a used capsule.  SpaceX is making space a bunch cheaper. (Post in memory of Mike Nofsinger, who is up there somewhere, smiling.)

The X-37B spaceplane, that up until now has conducted missions so ultra secret, that nothing other than the launching and landing are ever reported, is currently conducting a flight where, for the first time, we know at least part of what it is doing.  Story here.
