Are We There Yet? Podcast

When it comes to human space exploration, we’re on the brink of something big.

Astronauts are about to make the leap from low-earth orbit to destinations never before explored by humans — deep space, asteroids and, ultimately, Mars.

New probes and rovers are leading the charge, helping us understand our solar system so we can put humans on new worlds.

Join host Brendan Byrne, space reporter at 90.7 WMFE in Orlando, Fla., as he explores the advances in human space exploration.
