Moonstruck is a podcast series from CSIS Aerospace Security research associate Thomas G. Roberts. Listen to the show on iTunesStitcherSpotifyGoogle Play, or wherever you get your podcasts.

On Moonstruck, listeners hear from astronauts, engineers, politicians, and space decision-makers. They’ll tell their stories from the history of human spaceflight; sharing how their time at the edge of human understanding taught them about themselves and the rest of us on the ground.

Episodes focus on the moments between the greatest accomplishments and painful failures, tiny windows into feelings a bit more familiar to us all: suspense and relief, comfort and fear.

Listeners can take these moments—small glimpses from an outstanding chapter in our world’s story—and use them to think about how we use space today, what questions we’re asking, and what comes next in the greatest human pursuit of exploration. You’ll get a seat at the table alongside researchers and leaders on the forefront of the next chapter in human spaceflight.
