About this Episode

In this week's questions show, I explain what I think the best uses of the Moon might be, why I'm qualified to answer questions about space, and if you could use a black hole as mirror that lets you look back in time.

00:28 What's the best use of the Moon?
03:46 What are my qualifications?
05:44 Could a black hole bend light back to us?
07:12 How can the Moon drift away?
10:18 What are black holes made of?
12:18 Could we search for aliens who have organized their stars?
15:28 Could we build gravity trains?
17:24 What if we find life on Europa?
19:18 The Solar System is the weird one
21:10 Could there be aliens that look like us?
23:36 Will VR get so good we won't want to go to space?
