Credit to Buzz Lightyear of course (for the quote) we’re joined in this episode by Terry Virts, a real-life former astronaut, former fighter pilot and retired USAF Colonel, to talk about rocket ships, the energy they need to get to the moon and beyond to Mars, the role of nuclear energy in space and on earth, and the state of play in outer space with Russia and China.
