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.

Jupiter - King of the Planets

July 2nd, 2021

Alexander Winn rockets us to Jupiter where we attempt to wrap our brains around a behemoth of a planet. With the aid of thousands of years of human observation from afar and remotely, we can do our best to imagine the conditions we might experience if we were to explore the planet in person.

Moons of Jupiter

July 9th, 2021

Alexander Winn catapults us to the Moons of Jupiter. There, we will find hints of rich resources and potentially life-supporting regions that bode well for possible human exploration, and we’ll be taking a close look at many of the major objects in anticipation of what those first explorers might encounter.
