On this week’s episode of Space Connect Podcast, hosts Adam Thorn and Bella Richards chat to Dr Alice Gorman, also known as Dr Space Junk, about her current project on the International Space Station and the space debris crisis.
Gorman chats to the crew about her archaeological project on the ISS that is studying how the astronauts work and live, and it may help future space station endeavours or even long-term human spaceflight.
The trio also discuss the current state of space junk in orbit, and Gorman urges Australia to impose laws that insist companies provide a deorbiting strategy for every launch.
