Rocket monsters with NASA – WTT
In today’s episode, NASA comes on the show to talk with Dooner and The Dude about moving monster-sized rockets on barges. The last piece of the world’s most powerful rocket – the Space Launch System (SLS) – sailed into NASA’s John F. Kennedy Space Center on April 25 after a 900-mile journey aboard the unique Pegasus barge of its kind. The center stage of the 212-foot-high rocket is the final piece of the Artemis 1 launch in 2021. We’ll find out how it all happened.
Plus, MTS Logistics’ 11th Annual Autism Bike; transport of goods in Latin America; a robbery at Lowe’s; air cargo handlers steal gold bars; the public is afraid of autonomous trucks; the closure of a trucking company is one of the largest in Canada since the start of the pandemic; and the Amazon AmaZen booths called “closets of despair”.
They are joined by special guests Cliff Lanham, senior director of vehicle operations for ground exploration systems at NASA; Lili Villareal, head of space and offline operations at NASA; Sedat Saka, CEO of MTS Logistics; and Diego Bertezzolo, co-founder and CEO of Avancargo.
