Years ago, people believed space travel was impossible. But now that we’ve ‘been there, done that’, the next crazy idea is mining space for the resources that will save Earth’s ecosystem, our global economies, and enable our species to keep growing.

Our guests in this episode:
* Brad Tucker from the Australian National University. * Mike Wall from Check out his book: Out There - a Scientific guide to Alien Life, Antimatter, and Human Space Travel. * Loren Grush from The Verge. Loren has a great video series called Spacecraft available at
