Somewhere in the Skies

Feb 25, 2019

On episode 97 of SOMEWHERE IN THE SKIES, Ryan speaks with author, pop-science writer, and space flight historian, Amy Shira Teitel. Amy tells us how her interest in space history first began, what it's like competing in a male-dominated field, her thoughts on private space exploration, and she even runs us through some strange UFO-related events she came across in her vast array of research. We round things out talking about her latest book, Breaking the Chains of Gravity: The Story of Spaceflight Before NASA
