Mike Massimino and Meet the Minister

A Hubble astronaut and the UK's "Space Minister" grace the podcast this month...
06 February 2023
Presented by Richard Hollingham, Sue Nelson


NASA astronaut Mike Massimino


Two big interviews this month: Sue Nelson and Richard Hollingham meet Hubble astronaut , Mike Massimino, at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in New York. We also sit down with the UK’s ‘Space Minister’ (although you can’t call him that), George Freeman MP. Mike chats about how he was inspired by Apollo, Artemis, Hubble and what he learned from astronaut legend John Young about going to the toilet on the Moon. And hear why the atmosphere suddenly got awkward. With the Minister we talk about launch from the UK, the recent European Space Agency (ESA) Council of Ministers meeting, astronauts, Mars and cleaning up space.
