Physical Attraction

We are the podcast that explains ideas in physics, one chat-up line at a time. Not just a physics podcast, though - interviews with scientists, scholars, authors and reflections on the history and future of science and technology are all in the wheelhouse.

Should we be talking about a one-world government to head off existential threats? What about schemes to preserve human genetic information, or launch relics from our civilisation to land on the moon?

What can we practically do to reduce the risks for our civilisation?

These are the questions that this, the very last episode in our TEOTWAWKI series (okay... for now...) will explore.

Questions? Comments? Concerns?
