This final episode of the season is truly out of this world. The team speaks to Rosa Santomartino, a space microbiologist in the School of Physics and Astronomy. Rosa was one of the lead scientists on the BioRock and BioAsteroid experiments, which sent microbe samples to the International Space Station, to study how the microbes reacted to different gravity conditions. This could impact both biomining on Earth, and potential future planet-settling missions. You can find Rosa on Twitter @RosaBioRosa.
