On Tuesday’s Houston Matters: President Trump wants to send astronauts back to the moon. What does that mean for the future of our space program and the Johnson Space Center? We talk it over with Texas Rep. John Culberson and space writer Eric Berger.

Also this hour: Since Harvey hit, we’ve heard a lot of questions about where money raised for the relief effort would be spent – along with where state and federal recovery funds would go. The Texas Tribune has been digging up those numbers and issuing periodic report cards on what agencies like FEMA and the Small Business Administration have been spending so far – along with where all the money raised by different private campaigns will go. We run through some of the latest figures with reporter Morgan Smith.

Plus: Reza Aslan talks about his book, God: A Human History, and a local artist turns debris found on the streets of Houston into art.
