In the last week and half there’s been an ongoing discussion as to whether Canada needs and should develop an indigenous orbital rocket launch capability. That’s the topic of this weeks podcast.

My guest is Adam Trumpour. Adam is a concept designer at Pratt & Whitney Canada by day, and a rocket developer by night.

He develops liquid propellant rocket engines, occasionally consults on the subject and mentors student rocketry groups.
