Join space innovation researcher Matjaz Vidmar (University of Edinburgh) and acclaimed science fiction author Pippa Goldschmidt to debate the future of human activity beyond Earth. Who does outer space belong to, and are humans the only ones in it? Will colonising space soon become our business-as-usual, and should we be doing it at all? Is any of this plausible reality, or are these just Pippa’s works of fiction? Come along to find out and have your say on the future of human activity in outer space!
