GeekSpeak – what should we do with all the objects in space? Join the discussion Saturday 29th June at 12pm SLT

Would you like to hitch a ride on Oumuamua, the extra-solar traveller that stayed here for a short time?  Do you support Comet Interceptor, the ESA plan to be ready for the next interstellar visitor, so that we can gather information from it?  Who knows, some interstellar visitors may be alien drones.

Or would you like to capture an asteroid as JAXA plans to do?  To mine it, to understand it, to figure out how we could live in it. 

Or do you have wilder ideas about how to deal with the solar system?  A telescope on the far side of the moon, a gas station on Titan, an underwater restaurant on Pluto?  Come and tell us!  We are exploring the usefulness of our neighbours in the solar system.  Bring some mining equipment.

IM Vulcan Viper if you have ideas for new subjects.
