Speakers: Rusty Schweickart, former NASA astronaut and Chair Emeritus of the B612 Foundation 
David DesMarais, NASA Ames and Academy Fellow

This conversation will revolve around whether our search for Earth 2.0 and other exoplanets is an absolute requirement for humanity’s survival. Are there alternatives to moving out?
