For three decades, the Space Shuttle program carried 355 astronauts into orbit on 135 missions.

And it took a team of thousands of engineers, technicians and other employees to keep the program flying. A new documentary “When We Were Shutte” tells the stories of those working behind the scenes — and what the program meant to them.

We’ll speak with director Zackary Weil about the film.

Then, SpaceX is making progress on its Starship spacecraft…and work continues here in Florida at the Kennedy Space Center. We’ll hear from NASA Spaceflight dot com’s managing editor Chris Gebhardt about the latest from Starbase and KSC.
