I’m alerting you to the helpful information in Tim Dodd’s 2020 film immediately following the two space flights by billionaire Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos. Both businessmen are aiming at greatly increasing the number of flights into Space for commerce and space tourism.

Tim Dodd begins his film by wondering why NASA, with a mission of protecting the atmosphere, agrees to polluting space flights and their expansion into space tourism.

Tim Dodd is also known as The Everyday Astronaut. He is a science communicator, photographer, and musician. His website - - features videos and information about past and upcoming spaceflight.

Tim is clearly a fan and supporter of the aerospace industry - which makes this 55 min. video so interesting - not only to me. It had over a million views since March 2020. Also on his website is an excellent scholarly illustrated article entitled: WHAT IS THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ROCKETS HAVE ON OUR AIR?

Tim Dodd’s research on rocket fuels, different design of rockets and engines, and how combustion works, is impressive and answers many questions on how rockets pollute.
