Does Space need the Government to survive? 5.01

In the first episode of our 5th season we ask you, the community, do we need Governments to keep space alive? Or is our future better served in the hands of private companies?

An Atlas V Heavy rocket lifted off the pad carrying a DoD communications satellite. The European Space Agency is looking to go to the moon in 2018 using technology they already have built. And we look at the community feedback from our 4.24 episode of Spacevidcast, all in this action packed Spacevidcast Live show.
