During our 11 minute plus discussion, John, Jeff & I both the recent Falcon 9 GEO commercial satellite launch, the 8th successful Falcon 9 launch, plus the upcoming Cygnus launch to the ISS. We talked about the solar radiation delay by one day of the Cygnus launch on Antares, spacecraft shielding, and the down capacity for the SpaceX Dragon capsule. An additional topic focused on the extension of the ISS to 2024 and what it might take to extend the station’s life out to 2028.
