Special Guest: This week, in our Season Finale, we are celebrating and honoring an extra-special group of people on the Weekly Space Hangout: Our Journalist Team! We are also excited to introduce our newest team member, Dr. Nick Castle ( @PlanetaryGeoDoc ) from PSI, and celebrate the return of Nika (Klimovich) following her brief sabbatical.

It has been an honor to work with this exceptional group of individuals for the past two seasons, and we look forward to continuing the relationship in the future!

We hope you have enjoyed this season as we enter our summer hiatus — we will continue to be working behind the scenes, however.

We look forward to seeing everyone in September – please stay safe and enjoy the next two months.
