Indian space entrepreneur and habitat designer Dr Susmita Mohanty joins Lebanese remote sensing scientist Dr Maya Nasr in conversation to discuss their shared vision for space exploration. Drawing on their experiences ― from Nasr launching the Humanity United with MIT Art and Nanotechnology in Space (HUMANS) record of community messages to the International Space Station, to Mohanty’s role championing India’s cutting-edge space industry ― the duo will examine the barriers they have overcome to ensure improved representation and diversity to create an industry that is open to all.
