In celebration of the human achievements of going to space we are presenting our new series of podcasts with inspirational space people from around the world.
Think big, start small!
Our podcast series engages the public with the latest developments in space exploration through connecting with world leaders of thought who make the difference in their space environment. We know that every space endeavour started as a thought or a dream in someone’s heart. It doesn’t matter who you are or where you are, if you dream of space and follow your dream, it will come true. Here we talk about goal setting and where to find inspiration. We plug into the collective wisdom of these people to understand how to navigate towards a future as a spacefaring civilisation.
