** Lunar Heritage and Lost Meteorites | Naked Astronomy, from the Naked Scientists on acast

Space Boffins Richard Hollingham and Sue Nelson with a TinTin style headline for this month’s podcast: lunar heritage and the lost meteorites of Antarctica. Recorded at the recent Bluedot festival, Space archaeologist and co-deputy chair of Australia’s Space Industry Association, Dr Alice Gorman, explains why we need to think about preserving the Apollo sites before we return to the Moon and Dr Katherine Joy discusses her latest meteorite mission. Bjorn from Sweden provides a jingle, the joys of Lego and the Royal Astronomical Society’s Dr Robert Massey joins the fun to add to a long list of very interesting, we repeat interesting, questions… It will all become clear on the podcast.
