On Episode 106 of This Week In Space, Rod and Tariq take you on a tour of the coolest space places on Earth.

Most you can visit; some are more problematic, but many are must-sees for we, the True Believers! They will tell you where they are, what’s there to see, and — where possible — how to get inside without getting arrested.

Rod and Tariq also do a solar eclipse recap from our varied — and somewhat frustrating — experiences earlier this week.
