Settle the Stars: The Science of Space Exploration

Exploring and terraforming Mars will be the greatest scientific and engineering challenge in the history of our species. From landfall and building the first cities to manipulating an entire planetary environment, this podcast will dive into the science of space exploration, settlement and terraforming!

Join Alexander Winn, creator of TerraGenesis and founder of Edgeworks Entertainment, as he walks you through the real science behind his hit indie terraforming game, TerraGenesis, and how those same concepts will work in real life.

Origin of TerraGenesis

February 5th, 2020

This episode covers how TerraGenesis came into existence and what inspired Alexander to create TerraGenesis in the first place.

Welcome to the Solar System

February 12th, 2020

This episode covers the Solar Systems in TerraGenesis. Alex talks about the features each planet has and the logistics behind setting them up.

Surface Temperature

February 19th, 2020

This episodes dives into the first terraforming metric in TerraGenesis - temperature. This metric plays a huge role in whether or not a planet or moon is habitable.

Atmospheric Pressure

February 26th, 2020

This episode deals with the second major terraforming metric, atmospheric pressure. Learn about the sources of atmospheric pressure and how it impacts the body, as well as how we might alter the atmospheric pressure of Mars, Venus, and other worlds.
