For Episode 92, experts take the stage at the Johnson Space Center to discuss the historic Apollo 10 mission and how the lessons learned then will help us achieve our goal of returning to the Moon in 2024.
The European Space Agency’s Torsten Bieler discusses how ESA uses concurrent engineering. Concurrent engineering, also known as simultaneous engineering, has been adopted by companies and government agencies as a method to improve productivity and reduce costs.
NASA geologist Patrick Taylor remembers watching the Apollo 11 Moon landing from Valencia, Spain. In addition to the geology of our Moon, Patrick is currently working on earthquake science.

As a part of Science Friday's Degrees Of Change series, we asked our listeners how their communities are responding to climate change.
Le 10 avril 2019, un groupe de scientifique présentait au monde la première image acquise d’un trou noir. Cet évènement marque un succès de la méthode scientifique : la théorie avait prévu quelque chose, le racontait depuis des années et finalement l’observait, comme prévu. Devant cette efficacité incroyable de la science à comprendre notre monde, on pourrait rapidement conclure que la méthode scientifique est la meilleure méthode pour acquérir des connaissances. Voire même que toute connaissance non scientifique n’est que croyance ou obscurantisme. Mais si la méthode scientifique n’était pas la seule manière de construire de la connaissance? Peut-on faire grandir la connaissance par des méthodes bien différentes de celle de la méthode scientifique? La connaissance produite ne serait pas “scientifique” mais ne serait-elle pas pour autant une connaissance? Est-ce que la science ne peut pas grandir de l’utilisation des autres méthodes d’acquisition de connaissance?
