Episode 179 – 22nd March 2013

A blockbuster show as we speak to Apollo 15 Astronaut Al Worden (HE WENT TO THE MOON!), along with psychologist Steven Pinker and new BHA President Jim Al-Khalili. The Chief Asteroid Miner at Planetary Resources explains… how to mine asteroids, and we also take a look at some crazy goings on both in Germany and closer to home.
