This was the first weekly space hangout, run as a Hangout on Air in Google+. On the agenda: NASA’s GRAIL Mission, the return of Phobos-Grunt, the Quadrantid meteor shower, 2012 nonsense and teleporting Obama to Mars. We were joined by Nancy Atkinson, Alan Boyle, Fraser Cain, Pamela Gay, Nicole Gugliucci, Ian O’Neill, Phil Plait, and Jon Voisey.

I apologize for the low quality of audio and video, we’re working out ways to make this all better, but I hope you enjoy the discussion.

    I think events from experts using Google Hangouts on air could make google+ REALLY popular in the scientific and technology communities.

    Excellent idea, to have a weekly “Space Hangout”, Thanks! I would like to see one with people like Icrowell (LC), Torbjörn Larsson, etc. These people would be just perfect to discuss issues of special interest on UniverseToday.

    Phil, I feel so bad having missed the live “Space Hangout”, but it’s a really excellent idea. Please keep doing more.
    I sat though the recorded show on the 7th and was most impressed!
