Today’s podcast is all about the moon. I’ll first share some of my thoughts on recent developments with respect to the exploration of the moon by the global space community. Then we have an interview with Pierre-Alexis Joumel, a co-founder of the Moon Race.

My interview this week is about the Moon Race competition. The competition is a global initiative founded by Airbus and its international partners including Blue Origin, and is aimed demonstration key technologies required for the sustainable exploration of the moon.

The race consist of challenges in four parallel technology streams. If you’re a small or medium business who are interested in getting your technologies demonstrated on the moon then this initiative just might be for you.
