On this week’s Space Connect Podcast episode, Adam Thorn, Bella Richards and Liam Garman discuss what this study is all about, and how it is considered archeological. 

Then the crew chats about a new report that has been released in Australia urging the nation to increase its sovereign Earth observation satellite capabilities, in fears it won’t be prepared for a future space weather event.

Next, the group discusses how Australia was chosen to build the rover for the moon because of its  “world-class” mining and expertise in working in harsh conditions.

Lastly, the trio chats about the first spacewalk of the year on the ISS and Liam closes off with the first space fact of the year.
