Earth Day looks at fragile planet and... SPACE


The fragile nature of our planet has never been so pronounced – which makes the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, on April 22, such a significant occasion, according to Flinders University Associate Professor Alice Gorman.

 

Known internationally as Dr Space Junk for her expertise in space archaeology, Associate Professor Gorman says the COVID-19 pandemic has forced people to think expansively about our planet and its future – from ecological degradation to how humans affect all aspects of the environment, including what is being rocketed into space.
