Episode Description

We’ve all heard it…It’s not Rocket Science, or it’s not Brain surgery, or my personal favorite it’s not Rocket Surgery. Well in this week’s episode, it is Rocket Science and if we’re lucky maybe some rocket surgery. But what even is rocket science? Why is it the bar we use for difficulty? The one and only Jordan Slavish joins us to talk about this fascinating topic. He’s an educator, rocket enthusiest, and future Discovery Channel star. Join hosts Shanti and Danny as we discuss this complex topic and breakdown what makes it so unique, and don’t forget to check out “Rocket Around The Christmas Tree” Dec 3rd at 10 p.m. EST.
