National Museums Liverpool Podcast: Should We Go To Space?

The National Museums Liverpool Podcast weaves together stories from our collections with the experiences of people in Liverpool today, exploring connections between the past and the present.

In the past decade advancements in technology have enabled us to discover more about the universe we inhabit, but should we be delving deeper into the unknown expanses of space when our own planet has issues of it’s own? Dr Jackie Bell tells us how important space exploration is for the generations that follow and how it can help us understand and even solve Earth’s Problems.

Then NML’s very own Patrick Kiernan from the Planetarium at World Museum tells us how important it is to understand the darkest depths of space so we can protect our earth from meteorites headed to earth.
