Every week, Supercluster recaps the biggest stories from space exploration. This week: Our Chief of Content Robin Seemangal is joined by Supercluster contributor and launch expert Chris Gebhardt to discuss the 50th anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 launch and moon landing. They discuss where the original surviving crew members stand on the debate between returning humans to the moon or going straight to Mars, India’s timely launch to land a rover on the lunar surface, and what SpaceX has been brewing up for their own crewed missions to deep space.
Also on this edition of Last Week in Space, Elon Musk hosted the annual Hyperloop competition at SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, California, where college engineering teams from around the world compete to build and test the fastest pod. Spaceflight photographer Tom Cross was on-location for Supercluster and you can check out his photos below.
