If you'd like a daily (or just occasional) audio fix of "space stuff," check out Discovery Now, a free 90 second daily podcast on aerospace topics from the National Institute of Aerospace. Of course you can't go very deep into anything in 90 seconds, but you might learn something interesting. Recent topics include VASIMIR rockets, geysers on Enceladus, Galileo (the dude, not the spacecraft), and "supercomputers for smooth flying." You can access the MP3's or subscribe to the podcasts through their web site, or you can get them through iTunes. The Discovery Now web site also has a few lesson plans on space related topics.
