Jason Callahan, Casey Dreier and Mat Kaplan of the Planetary Society return with another in-depth conversation about the politics and policies of space exploration. This month they ask whether the Moon vs. Mars human destination debate makes sense, examine a new report on CubeSats by the National Academies, and explain how a thrilling planetary science mission like Juno gets a thumbs up from NASA. It’s a complex but effective ordeal.
