Introducing Terranauts – A New SpaceQ Podcast With Iain Christie

Iain Christie

What happens when you bring Iain Christie and Marc Boucher together? Well, naturally they’re both going to want to talk, a lot.

Their contributions are essential to our knowledge of space and its use to benefit humanity.

Today, in introducing Terranauts, I’m going to turn the tables on the host of the new SpaceQ pop-up podcast, Iain Christie, and interview him. Iain’s first episode will air in September.
