We stayed at the same hotel, and traveled to the special press events together but then we pretty much scattered to do our own thing.

You’ve already heard Joe on Chit Chat Across the Pond from this week where we talked about his journey from Youtuber to full-time employee at Lynky, a smart home device company.

Steve and I did 28 interviews, 25 of which were at press events, and only 3 of which were at the Convention Center halls.

CES 2018: NASA SLS Orion Capsule and Parachute System

I interview Jared Daum from Johnson Space Center about NASA’s Orion Crew Capsule and its associated parachute system. The Orion capsule sits atop the Space Launch System (SLS) rocket that will take astronauts to the moon as well as Mars. Orion has a diameter of 16.5 feet and supports a crew of up to 4 astronauts. Orion’s parachute system is multi-staged with the last three main parachutes each having an area of 11,000 sq-ft. Learn more at https://www.nasa.gov/exploration/systems/orion/index.html
