TDH – Politics from the Edge of Space

This week on the show, I was a little distracted with Felix Baumgartner’s record setting jump from the edge of space as I talked about the science and technology policies of the two presidential candidates, among some other time filling stories. If you are interested in the jump, at the time of writing, Felix was able to break all the records he set out to break with the exception of the longest time in free fall, that record will remain with his mentor Joe Kittinger. Thanks for listening, and go Vote!
