    EPISODE 032: Jacques Arnould, a tricky question for the entire space industry

    EPISODE 032: Jacques Arnould, a tricky question for the entire space industry

    Jacques Arnould is paid to ask uncomfortable questions. As an ethicist at the French space agency CNES, Jacques puts his fingers on places that people sometimes like to ignore: such as the question: why we do what we do. Why money is spent on this mission and not on another, and above all, why we want to do spaceflight in the first place.

    EPISODE 031: Ian Carnelli, Preparing for the worst

    EPISODE 031: Ian Carnelli, Preparing for the worst

    Next year, a small spacecraft will head for the double asteroid Didymos to slam into it with its brakes off. The name of the mission gives free rein to the imagination: Planetary Defense Mission. It is a joint mission between ESA and NASA, and it wants to test for the first time what has long been a topic in science fiction: can a deadly chunk of rock be deflected from its collision course with the earth or is a second event that took away the dinosaurs only a matter of time? The Planetary Defense Mission will find an answer. Whether it is the one we would like remains to be seen. Mission Director Ian Carnelli paints a fascinating picture of this unique mission.

    EPISODE 030: Yvette Hopkins, Shetland Space Center

    EPISODE 030: Yvette Hopkins, Shetland Space Center

    In the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, a little north of Scotland, there is a small island that you can cross by car in just two and a half hours. In the far north there is not much going on, lush meadows as far as the eye can see. And sheep, of course. On closer inspection, however, there is one place with a most curious combination of buildings that piqued our interest: a spaceport with its own pub. Naturally we got curious and did a little research and uncovered a most fascinating story.

    EPISODE 029: Brother Guy Consolmagno, The Pope’s Astronomer

    EPISODE 029: Brother Guy Consolmagno, The Pope’s Astronomer

    Brother Guy Consolmagno begins his conversation in this podcast by referring to a long and strange tale. And that's what it has become. One of the most fascinating paths we've followed on this podcast so far. This is the story of the transformation of a budding astronomer with very secular interests into the Pope's chief astronomer. If you want to know what the Catholic Church thinks about New-Space and why Brother Guy doesn't think God lives in heaven, we highly recommend this podcast.

    EPISODE 028: Mahsa Moghimi Esfandabadi, Space Architect. What our habitats on foreign shores will look like

    Mahsa Moghimi Esfandabadi builds houses. Preferably for places like Mars or the Moon. Because in the not too distant future, we will need permanent dwellings out there. But as you might expect, it's not that simple and will take generations of research. Space is and remains merciless when it comes to offering humans a potentially new home. But Mahsa will not be shaken off that easily as she calls persistence one of her magic skills. Get on board and take an exclusive tour of a future habitat in distant worlds with this new edition of the Space Cafe Podcast.

    EPISODE 027: Bruce Damer - a new origin of life and how to mine an asteroid.

    EPISODE 027: Bruce Damer - a new origin of life and how to mine an asteroid.

    Bruce Damer is a versatile scientist who may be on the verge of rewriting the story of the origin of life. Contrary to all our ideas and textbook opinions, life may not have originated at the bottom of the oceans. Quite the opposite. Many things speak against it and the scientific community is debating. Of course, the space community has also taken notice of this news and Bruce also has a very clear idea of what to look for on distant planets like Mars.

Getting Spaced Out & Tuned In

Avi Loeb is a Baby Universe unto himself ... borne of appropriate measures of exploratory wonder and scientific pragmatism which characterise his "Space Archaeologist". His notion of extra terrestrial possibility is devoid of Hollywood's tendency to infantalise Space; successfully exported to the masses but perhaps detrimental to a bonafide mobilised-globalised Scientific quest. Civilisation's hunger to know its origins vis a vis "out there" is as basic as Magellan's discovery of a new world right here. Until we WISH to find something, we probably won't. Avi is an adept pilot, steering us beyond the realm of Ego & Specialness to a humble Earth ... one which outstretches its young arms to that of the grander Cosmos with hopes of learning and growing its (healthier) self. Getting Spaced Out & Tuned for these 57 minutes is well worth the ride.
