    This is the first of two episodes on the the Space Shuttle’s systems and operations. We talk to Davide Sivolella, an aerospace engineer who has written a quite technical book on the shuttle. In this episode we talk about some of the shuttle’s systems, including the structure, the engines, the boosters and the thermal protection system.

    A Correction: Davide mentioned that the external tank is manufactured in New Jersey. This is wrong. It is built in Lousiana.
