Nicole Stott is a retired NASA astronaut turned artist. She spent several months at the International Space Station – and so we spoke to her about space travel. We kept it brief.

She speaks about international cooperation in multi-planetary settlements, permanent presence on the moon, travelling to Mars and staying there and preserving life on earth. And discusses if we will be so stupid to destroy our planet.

This is the first video in our new series “60 seconds with…” in which we very briefly discuss a topic with an interesting person.
