It was day #1 of the International Space Apps Challenge when I met Jon Spooner, the director of Human Space Flight Operations at the Unlimited Space Agency. His goal: hack his way into space. I interviewed Jon Spooner about his plans as well as Todd Khozein from the operations team at SecondMuse, about his impressions on the mission.

In preparation for his flight, Jon interviewed Dr. Alex Kumar (research medical doctor) from the European Space Agency, Don Thomas from NASA, Tim Peake (Astronaut) from European Space Agency, Loredana Bessone (Astronaut instructor) from the European Space Agency, Dr. Andy Newsam (Astrophysicist) from Liverpool John Moores University, and Dr. Gail Iles (a condensed matter physicist and astronaut instructor) at the European Space Agency.
