It’s Rocket Science: Testing PlanetVac in the Mojave Desert

Join Mat Kaplan in Californias Mojave Desert for special coverage of not one but two rocket flights and a real world test of PlanetVac, the innovative, radically simple way to collect surface samples from other worlds. PlanetVac replaced one foot of a Masten Space Systems Xodiac rocket for back-to-back hops across a test site. We also talk with Masten CEO Sean Mahoney. Planetary Society Chief Scientist Bruce Betts made the trip. Hell open a super massive contest for PlanRad listeners in our Whats Up segment.

Featured Speakers: Masten Space Systems Director of Technical Operations Reuben Garcia, Masten Space Systems CTO and Founder Dave Masten, Masten Space Systems CEO Sean Mahoney, Honeybee Robotics Engineers Justin Spring and Kathryn Luczek
