Sydney Science Trail 2021 – The Great Space Debate

  19-Aug-2021      09:45AM
Live Event
19
Aug

Private companies like SpaceX are making great progress in humanity’s ability to access space for exploration or even recreation, with billions of dollars being invested annually on research and development of new technologies. For many space enthusiasts, colonising Mars is the next big step for humanity. However, many ask why would we spend so much money making a new planet habitable when we already have Earth? What would it look like if we focused this investment on the challenges facing Earth? Join our panel of scientists as we debate the need to explore space against the need to protect our home, planet Earth. 

This event will feature Dr Marco Duretto (Royal Botanic Garden Sydney), Dr Jenny Newell (Australian Museum and Annie Handmer (University of Sydney), and hosted by Suzanne Hill (ABC Radio Sydney).

Proudly presented by Science Trail: Education. Sydney Science Trail is delivered as a collaborative partnership between the Australian Museum and The Royal Botanic Gardens and Domain Trust in celebration of National Science Week 2021. 

This event will be accessible to students learning from home and in the classroom. Registered participants will receive connection details before 10am on the day before this event.
