This one’s a biggie for us – we were asked to join the Music and Film Stage at Latitude Festival, and many, many people joined us for a fascinating discussion of the future of space exploration for a little panel we called Space: The New Final Frontier.
Joining us were musician Hero Baldwin, planetary scientist and winner of the BBC’s Astronauts – Do You Have What It Takes? show Suzie Imber, our very own senior advisor for science and exploration at ESA Mark McCaughrean, Harry Potter and Star Trek: Discovery star Jason Isaacs, and moderated by Space Rocks host Alexander Milas. Check it out now!
In which Mark and Alex survey an incredible day at the London pilot event, with interviews from astronaut Tim Peake, extreme environments medic Beth Healey, science broadcaster Dallas Campbell, astrophysicist Maggie Lieu and meteorite expert Geoff Notkin, fresh from an adventure in the Sahara.
In which Space Rocks’ Alexander Milas and senior ESA science advisor Mark McCaughrean talk 50 years of 2001, our first major event at Space Rocks London on April 22nd, and ex-Ash guitarist, Space Rocks Live opener and sci fi obsessive Charlotte Hatherley tells us why 70s sci fi’s the best and we surprise her with the dreaded Space Quiz.
