This episode of Space Cafè Radio is part of our Karman mini-series, produced in collaboration with the Karman Project. The Karman Project every year selects 15 fellows from around the world to foster trust, cooperation, and dialogue between global leaders in space.
In this episode Editor in Chief Dr Emma Gatti interviewed Anastasia Stepanova, a Mission Specialist in Space Project and a Ph.D. student at the Colorado School of Mines. Anastasia shares her diverse background in space journalism, cosmonaut simulation projects, and her current Ph.D. research on lunar resources.
Anastasia, a passionate almost cosmonaut, speaks openly about the challenges Russian women face in the Space industry, the cold relationship of her country with Europe, and the disproportion of budget between military and civil mission.
