Podcast on the History and Technology of Spy Satellites

In this episode we speak with David Baker, who wrote a fascinating book about spy satellites. We cover the political and military context that drove their development, their (known and suspected) capabilities, methods of recovering the images, as well as typical orbits and the sartellites’ ability to change that orbit for quick repositioning.

Here are the videos I mentioned on the show:

  • The Last Bucket Catch
  • Corona Project: “A Point in Time” 1995 CIA
  • First Spy Satellites: “Corona Project Overview”
  • CIA Spy Satellites : The Corona Story
  • The Top Secret Satellites Documentary
  • Spy in the Sky – The KH-9 Hexagon
  • HEXAGON – Sentinel of Liberty
