Steve reluctantly helps in the training of the world's first American female astronaut, Kelly Wood.  But when there is an accident aboard her vessel that injures her fellow pilot, Kelly must pilot the Athena One to Skylab.  Steve mounts a rescue mission to return the injured astronaut to earth.  The hitch - his bionics malfunction in space.  John and Paul are joined by author and podcaster (It Has Come to My Attention, Mighty Movies: Temple of Bad) Kevin Lauderdale to discuss how accurate the science and portrayal of NASA astronauts were in the episode.
