Sir Arthur Clarke Award Winner Many environmentalists think going into space detracts from solving problems on Earth. Most space explorers feel environmentalism hampers their exploration of space. Leading astro-biologist Prof. Cockell argues that environmentalism and space exploration have one and the same objective, to ensure humanity has a home.
