Oxford Martin School

Streamed live 11 hours ago

The great astronomer Carl Sagan envisaged Earth as a lonely life-raft in the cosmic ocean: a ‘Pale Blue Dot’ carrying all of humanity. However this state leaves us tied to the fate of our planet. To ensure our survival as a species, many advocate becoming interplanetary, colonising and perhaps terraforming other worlds. Join us to debate the feasibility of such an endeavour, to answer the ultimate question: can we — and should we — colonise Mars?
