To successfully travel to Mars and beyond, bioengineering in the form of gene editing and synthetic biology may be required to overcome our very human limitations. Yet these advancements in science and space exploration cannot be disentangled from several important questions.
How might they disrupt our definition of what it means to be human?
Who is included in conversations about what advances are necessary for space travel?
What are the genetic rights of the lands we seek to inhabit?
Join this meeting to hear the latest findings in space biology, intertwined with discussions that contextualize their ethical impact.
