NASA Intros Offbeat Video PodcastMay 3rd, 2007 | By James Lewin | Category: Digital Video Downloads, Internet TV, News Podcasts, Video, Video Podcasts
NASA has launched a new video podcast, NASA EDGE, that provides an offbeat look at the nation’s aerospace program. The hosts of NASA EDGE offer an unscripted take on the latest events at NASA.
Chris Giersch and Blair Allen host the show, with Franklin Fitzgerald as its news anchor. In the latest episode, Giersch and NASA scientists Dr. Nicky Fox and Troy Cline join forces to educate Allen about the importance of understanding space weather.
“NASA EDGE is like David Letterman and The Daily Show for NASA,” said Allen, “Just without David Letterman, Jon Stewart, Hollywood stars, a band or live audiences. But it is still funny. And we have science and news.”
You can preview the latest episode below or find out more about the show at the NASA EDGE site.
Previous episodes of NASA EDGE feature the Winter X-Games and space technology used there, a space food cook-off, a new game called “Innovation or Fabrication,” the Space Exploration Conference and the 21st Century Explorer Podcast Competition.
