EarthSky News with Deborah Byrd

All the news you can fit into outer space LIVE on Mondays and Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. ET (1530 UTC). Or watch right here!

Three-and-a-half minutes of Deborah delivering the news … and an awesome two-and-a-half minutes of Chris Hadfield’s now-classic rendition of Bowie’s Space Oddity, delivered from ISS. RIP, David Bowie.

This week … see video of SpaceX’s sea-going and land-based attempts to land a rocket upright, a belch from a supermassive black hole, and get an update on the magnificent planet-hunting Kepler spacecraft.

Special thanks to for producing this video.

Producer: Tricia Ennis
