OSIRIS-REx mission to asteroid Bennu


It’s an exciting time in space: NASA has just collected a sample from an asteroid and work is well underway to land a woman on the Moon. This month Sue Nelson and Richard Hollingham are joined by space journalist and author Dr David Whitehouse to chat about whether President Trump was good for space. They talk to Dr Sara Russell, one of the scientists working on the OSIRIS-REx mission to asteroid Bennu; and Andrew Stanniland, CEO of Thales Alenia Space UK, explains how they’ll build a fuel station for the Moon. What’s space exploration going to look like in 2069?
