    So I’m only half way through the episode at the moment as I was on my evening walk and I plan to finish listening to the episode tomorrow evening, but there are two things that I’d love to draw your attention to.

    First the actors in the scene where the Space Jockey is revealed I believe is children in spacesuit costumes standing in front of a matt painting. And secondly I hope that you’ve seen this and the video that I’m about to link to is something that you know about, but if you haven’t seen this, it’s a thing of wonder. It’s Adam Savage, of Mythbusters and Tested.com, showing off his detailed replica of Ash’s spacesuit.
