To celebrate world space week 2011, we kicked off by chatting to Dennis Stone, the President of the World Space Week Association, about why we celebrate space week, why space speaks to a longing inside so many of us to understand what is out there lurking in the depths of the universe and why it’s so important for humanity to get there.
You can listen to the full podcast or download it here.
UPDATE: Podcasts are now available via the World Space Week youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/worldspaceweekassn
Tomorrow’s episode (and my personal favourite!) features Dr. Chris McKay, an astrobiologist from NASA’s Ames research centre.
