Watch the Q&A:
50 years on from the Apollo program, the Moon has formed the desolate backdrop for a new era of space exploration. This era is one populated not by nations, but by private companies, each vying to make the next giant leap. The race is certainly on, but what’s the prize?
Calum Hervieu is a Spacecraft Operations Engineer working on the lunar surface mission definition at PTScientists in Berlin; a New Space company that aims to be the first private company to land a spacecraft on the Moon.
This talk and Q&A was filmed in the Ri on 20 July 2019.
