Time: 12:00 pm - 9:00 pm (AEST)

What’s really happening in the world of space exploration? Should we be worried about the impacts of mining and human settlements on the Moon? Should the Moon be recognised as a legal entity? Will we soon be living on Mars? What impact will any of this have on humans and life on Earth? What obligations do human beings have, to care for and protect our cosmic neighbours? Who's making these decisions, and should more people have a say over the governance of space exploration?
