We explore the intense competition between the US and the Soviets to launch humans into space, ultimately to the moon, and then return them safely home. Kinda like the contest between Rocky Balboa and Ivan Drago in Rocky IV. No really, it's just like that!!
As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 moon mission this month, what better way to honor the legacy of the US space program and the men and women who made it possible, than to spend some time exploring what their work means for all of us today.
In Falken's Maze, technologist and former professor Jason Thomas explores the intersection of technology, history, and culture. Created for listeners nostalgic for the 80s but who also want to understand the complexities of today, our show demystifies the world's most compelling technologies and events through 80's movies, music, and television.
This is where history, tech, and retro pop collide.
