Ask anyone interested in space science, and you will likely also find a person influenced in some way by science fiction, whether they grew up watching Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, Stargate, watching movies, or reading books. The genre has grown and expanded over the centuries, reflecting and inspiring changes in the world, our technology, and even our dreams of exploration. Now, Ariel Waldman - filmmaker, explorer, and former NASA advisor - has written an accessible book featuring dozens of interviews that "takes readers on a journey to the farthest depths of space".

Join communications specialist Beth Johnson in conversation with Ariel as they discuss her new book, Out There: The Science Behind Sci-Fi Film and TV. (Recorded live on 24 September 2023.)
