The British Humanist Association‘s annual Voltaire Lecture, this year delivered by psychologist and public intellectual Steven Pinker. The event was chaired by the Association’s new President, Jim Al-Khalili.
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.
