John Batchelor and I welcomed back Bill Harwood of CBS Space News to discuss the return of the Crew Dragon Demo 2 flight and splashdown in the Gulf of Mexico.  We discussed the water landing, pleasure boat swarms around the bobbing capsule, the Crew Dragon rough ride back to Earth, turnaround time for the capsule plus the number of times a capsule can be used.  Our next topic focused on the SpaceX Starship hop testing in Texas.  This was a one segment Hotel Mars program of about ten minutes in length.
