Health in Space series
In 2019 I set up the Health in Space series for the Space Generation Advisory Council. So far, I hosted scientists, designers, medical doctors and an astronaut as panellist in one hour sessions with a virtual audience. Participants get the chance to ask these pioneers and innovators questions and engage with the speakers . Most episodes have been recorded and can be viewed here!
