Welcome to the super duper official website for the Shuttlepod Cast podcast — a podcast about all things astronomy, outer space, and the wild and wacky universe!

The podcast is run by a couple of space-geeks from the USA: Nicolas, a computer-science student, and Echo, an astrophysics student. In our regularly irregular installments, we will sit together and chat back and forth through the cyber-aether about fun facts, interesting news, historic astronomers, and various miscellany.

On this website, you will be able to find our podcast itself, as well as our blog where we post about interesting astronomy things, and links to our socials.

Pour yourself a tasty cup of your favorite beverage or drink and enjoy meandering through our little corner of the web! 🙂
