Houston was once Space City – but it simply may not be anymore. As government priorities change, privatization nudges out NASA, and we hitch Russian rides to the space station, what's Houston's role in space?

On this edition of Houston Matters, we talk with the Houston Chronicle “Sci Guy” Eric Berger about the future of the space program. He’s written an extensive (and ongoing) series of reports examining what’s next for NASA, the space program, and Houston’s role in space exploration.

Also: With another school year comes another year of youth sports, and sports injuries. We welcome your questions about how Houston area schools, coaches and parents can try to protect their young athletes from serious injury, including the latest thinking on treating concussions.

Plus: A couple of area performance venues are currently displaced. We hear where the Alley Theatre and ComedySportz Houston have each settled, at least for the moment, as they seek to entertain audiences from temporary venues.
