We review some of our best interviews about space exploration from the last year, including clips from: Matthew J. Holman, Smithsonian Astrophysicist and Lecturer at Harvard University; Mary Roach, author of Packing for MarsJim Meigs, editor-in-chief of Popular Mechanics; and Caroline Moore, who at 14-years-old, became the youngest person to discover a supernova. We also review our interview on the last flight of the space shuttle Atlantis, with Jerry Ross, a seven-time astronaut who has spent five missions aboard Atlantis, and Colonel William Pailes, who was aboard the very first Atlantis mission.
