Join Cedric R.G. Thiry, CEO & Head of Systems Engineering, EmTDLab on how we can conquer what may be the biggest physical obstacle to our species living in space – protecting ourselves against space radiation. Current best-practices include using astronauts’ own water and food supply to absorb harmful rays, but that won’t be enough on longer journeys to Mars and beyond. How will we shield against radiation deeper in space? And how can that same technology help protect us back here on earth, everywhere from flying in planes or to watching TV? When it comes to shielding against radiation, we have a long way to go, before we can ever reach Mars.
