On 15 November 2020 SpaceEx launched a crewed mission to the International Space Station.

I had a great and timely discussion on “The Debate” on France 24 English on 16 November 2020. I was on with Keith Cowing and James Andre and it was a lovely discussion around this space commercialisation, the International Space and the role of space activity in politics.

Listen to the session, titled “A New Era for Space Travel? SpaceX Makes History With First Crewed Mission”.
