In this episode, we meet with Alyssa Carson, the @NasaBlueberry, whose goal is to become the youngest astronaut. Her background in astrobiology and her obsession about space is infectious. Space travel isn’t just necessary to prevent our existential risk, it can help heal international conflict.
Astrobiology is going to be very useful in the future as we start going back to the moon or Mars. Understanding the soil properties, looking for signs of life, and learning to sustain human life on new planets.
Space can help bring us together and help us fix some of the international conflicts we have today.
How do you terraform Mars so we can live on it with an atmosphere?
