When you look up and see the multitude of stars you can’t help but to feel awestruck and perhaps a little small. The Moon Landings, Voyager, Hubble telescope, the Curiosity rover and much more have all expanded our knowledge and understanding of the solar system and the universe. What will be our next step on our our journey into the complex theatre of space? Exploring Mars? What technologies do we need to develop to help humans reach and explore past our moon? Is there a mysterious ninth planet we haven’t detected yet? What about life beyond our solar system? Michael Robinson poses these fascinating questions and helps expand our knowledge as he talks with his guests Rachel Kraft, Prof. Renu Malhorta, Prof. Sara Seager and Phil Larson.
