View descriptionShare

Continuing their discussion of the Artemis Accords, Jack and Justin talk about the pros and cons of mining the Moon: What's really up there? How can we protect our future? And how does it relate to the plot of Air Bud (1997)?

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF COUNTRY: Mates in Space is made on Kaurna, Gadigal and Wurundjeri Country, never ceded. We pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging. We also pay respect to other First Nation peoples.
