"Expanding frontiers in space exploration" with Dr Colin Wilson
From rovers on Mars to balloons on Venus and boats on Titan, robotic spacecraft are exploring very distant frontiers indeed.

One of the most pressing ethical considerations is how to protect these alien environments, and the clues they hold about how widespread life might be in the universe, from our own exploration efforts.

Dr Colin Wilson, Researcher in the Department of Atmospheric, Oceanic, and Planetary Physics, will review the current frontiers and outlook for spacecraft exploration of our solar system and beyond.
