In the second episode of Terranauts, Iain Christie has a conversation with William “Mac” Evans.

Last week on the Terranauts podcast we talked about what it takes to build your own satellite.  This week, we think a little bigger and talk about what it takes to build a space program. 

Our guest this week is Mac Evans, a former president of the Canadian Space Agency and a current member of Canada’s Space Advisory Board.  Mac is also one of the architects of Canada’s space program.  We talk about that and about what it has been like to go to space for the last 50 years… without ever leaving the planet.
