I'm looking forward to joining this panel at the Edinburgh International Science Festival.

Terraforming – terrifying or terrific?
Saturday 2 April
Terraforming is the process of transforming a hostile environment into one suitable for human life. Our best nearby candidate is Mars and many people are already working on plans to make this possible. In this discussion we will look at our options for ex-Earth living. Where could we live? How would we get there? And importantly – are we ready to allow people to leave Earth forever? We will attack these questions from all sides with the help of Dr Jill Stuart, a space-law expert, Ryan MacDonald, a man prepared to put his life on the line for the Mars One Project and planetary geologist and astrobiologist Dr Louisa Preston.
