Blast off into the Podisphere with TGP NOMINAL, Your monthly look at all things Science Fact & Science Fiction.
TGP NOMINAL is brought to you by the creative force behind the European Podcast Award nominated, The Garbage POD podcast.
We launched Episode 1.1 of TGP NOMINAL to coincide with World Space Week 2014 & it proved to be a success with the visitors to the World Space Week website.
We chose 'TGP NOMINAL' as the name of the podcast, as it’s a positive term used during space launches. Originally we wanted to call it “TGP Throttle Up” but we thought that it might be a bad omen and may also conjure up bad memories for some in the space community.
What can you expect from TGP NOMINAL?
Space,Science and Technology news along side news from the world of Sci-Fi, ComicCons and Gaming. Whether it be on the big screen, small screen or in print, we will cover it.
We are building a network of contributors who will be representing TGP NOMINAL at places of interest and social events, so we can bring you content from them.
Since October 2016, we have been collaborating with NASA Goddard Space Flight Center to bring our listeners amazing interviews with key personnel involved with their missions, and In 2020, The European Space Agency (ESA) will be coming on board also.
At TGP NOMINAL we like to endorse S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) Education, so we have been working along side a charity based astronomy group called 'UK Astronomy' who their founder 'Ross Hockham' has become our resident astronomer.
From our Launch Pad, we will keep you informed of when rocket launches take place and put up links to the relevant space agencies or corporations behind the launches. If there are live streams for the launches, we will advise you of the best web sites to view them from via our Twitter and Facebook feeds.
On our Mission Control page, you can view live footage from NASA TV and listen to the worlds first space related radio station, Third Rock Radio.
