Casual Space

Mar 7, 2024

Can we settle space, should we settle space, and have we really thought this through?

Kelly and Zach Weinersmith make their triumphant return to Casual Space sharing their new book, “A City on Mars.”

Beth asks Kelly and Zach to spill the beans about everything they’ve learned and extensively researched regarding space settlements. In      doing their research Kelly attended numerous space conferences, while      Zach spent numerous hours reading memoirs.      Then they presented balanced serious content with humorous interjections, in perfect Weinersmith co-author style! 

This FUN conversation talks about the cultural differences in space history, with anecdotes about Soviet cosmonauts and the commercialization of space. Kelly and Zach discuss the psychological challenges of astronauts, the lack of trauma medicine in space, and the impact of microgravity on the human body. So, is space settlement a good idea? Did the authors discover excitement for the future of space exploration? One thing’s for certain-      Kelly and Zach have REALLY thought this through!
