Join us for an exciting evening of conversation about space mining and possible futures of Earth. We will hear from Kathryn Hadler, a space mining researcher at Imperial College London, about her work to enable oxygen mining on the moon. We will then experience transmissions intercepted from possible futures. We will understand what space scientists think the future might look like and discuss what kind of futures we want.
