Spaced out? Jeffrey Hoffman, former American astronaut

Can privatized space services make space exploration cheaper and easier? To discuss this, Oksana is joined by Jeffrey Hoffman, a former American astronaut and currently a professor of aeronautics and astronautics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Sending humans into space has long required an accumulated national and even international effort to provide all the necessary financing and technology. But SpaceX’s recent successes in hauling freight into orbit claim to challenge this paradigm.
