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.

The Sun

October 1st, 2021

The importance of our Sun is hard to overstate, not just as an essential foundation for life here on Earth, but as an agent for order and stability in a system of innumerable objects from the massive gas giants down to the smallest mote of dust. Alexander Winn stares directly into the sun, purely for science.

Earth‘s Moon

October 8th, 2021

Today’s journey is a refreshingly short one: a mere 238,855 miles from Earth.  In terms of cosmic distance, that’s right on our doorstep, or closer even – right off the tip of our nose. Alexander Winn steers us toward a destination easily spotted with the naked eye.
