Space Oddities Podcast Debut!

I'm proud to announce that episode one of Space Oddities: The Podcast has posted!

This ten part series is a companion to my new book, Space Oddities: Forgotten Stories of Mankind's Exploration of Space, that will be on book shelfs August 15th. The podcast features more lesser known and forgotten space tales that couldn't fit in the book.

Episode 1 is titled, "Moon Dust In Your Lungs, Stars In Your Eyes", and discusses NASA's plans to keep the Earth from being contaminated by lunar germs during the Apollo missions that unfortunately had a few flaws that will make you chuckle. We will also meet the first man to (accidentally) touch the moon and a young woman who got an unexpected shot of moon dust.

The title for this episode came while doing online research for the book. It was posted on one of those online quote sites and was credited to "anonymous." The full quote was, "Moon dust in your lungs, stars in your eyes. You are a child of the cosmos, a ruler of the skies."

The quote summarized the episode quite nicely.

You can download the episode HERE complete with show notes featuring images, videos, and more or from many of your favorite sites where you get your podcasts.
