Producer Jacqui here. Space is the topic today, where out there exists incredible business opportunities. From mining asteroids to low-orbit internet satellites, the entrepreneurial space race is on! Jason's guest is Chris Impey, astronomy professor and author of "Beyond: Our Future in Space," and they dive into everything from our "exploration gene" to Mars colonization and the Mars tsars, the amazing range of opportunities for startups wanting to break into the outer limits, why we haven't found evidence of intelligent life and, inevitably, sex in outer space. And much more! A fascinating, mind-expanding discussion about the frontier that is closer than you think. As Jason says: "You don't have to watch science fiction anymore, you can watch startups."
