  1. You are doing an excellent job Mike. I’m listening to each episode a second time through in hopes to teach others lessons learned and best practice for working through tough engineering problems. To sharpen my own skills, I created a custom and advanced engine management system for my ’75 MGB. It was a huge and difficult educational project for me using electronics, software and machining, but it works reliably enough for long vacations and car show inspectors.
    I’m a major space nick and I suspect we share similar backgrounds. FYI – MIT published a has a course on Aircraft Systems Engineering, in iTunes U, that your audience should be very interested in.

  2. Michael, I really enjoy the passion from which you deliver each podcast. Obviously what you do is important. Keep up the good work, we all learn something new every week.
    May I ask about your background?? Are you or were you tied to the US Space Program in some way?? Thanks again

  3. Dear Mike, I just catched up to hear Episode 101 from your great podcast. I have just discovered that you are not at the moon yet (Appolo 8). Thanks for the great podcast!.

    Greetings from Germany!

  4. I just donated and I’ll do everything I can do donate monthly.

    Love all of your podcasts! Astronautics and Aeronautics have been passion forever!

    Very much looking forward to your podcast of N1-5L!

    Oh, and any STS podcasts in the future?

    Thanks!

  5. I’ve been bing-listening to SRH for 3 months and just got to the most recent episode, #212. Amazing storytelling…my favorite is how Michael takes us through all critical decision-making that went into each mission. I’m hooked!

  6. What to my surprise You picked my number out of the hat for an Orion paper model.

    Thank You Mike for enriching my life.
    I have listened to most episodes more than once. Some of my favorites are the last two gemini missions. I’m always sad for the Russian disappointments as the engineers tried so hard and had so many set backs.

    Apollo has always reigned supreme for it’s daring bravado and as you and I know, technical mastery. I also spend my life in electronics USAF avionics, aircraft power systems, land mobile radio, microwave and fiberoptic communications systems at MCI. My first inertial navigation system was deployed prior to Apollo in the F4. It was an analog computer that also provided weapons guidance.
