Q&A: Growing Plants in Lunar Regolith? And More

In this week’s question show, Fraser wonders if we’ll be able to grow crops in lunar soil, if the Moon has been changing over time, and what title does Elon Musk get when he colonizes Mars.

0:20 – Puffs Koko – So if Elon Musk lands people on Mars and sets up labs, then buildings and so on, does that make Mars his planet? Does he then become President and ruler of Mars claimed by him?

1:58 – Einomies – Speaking of the Moon’s aesthetic. Has it changed at all during recorded history, with new craters or something of the sort. Other than whatever we left behind, of course.

2:53 – ak101farham – Can you grow plants on lunar soil?

5:03 – veggiet2009 – One of the most underrated fictional technologies from Star Trek are the sensors which are able to scan planets at short range, detecting everything from the number of bio signs to tectonic activity. My question is: is this tech even anything?What needs to be developed to have this kind of capability?

7:38 – Barrett Bogner – Has there ever been talk of a space elevator on the Moon? We hear about the Moon being a pit stop for exploring other planets. But do any of these moon base plans call for a space elevator? Is it possible with current materials?

9:04 – toposaurus TOP 10 – My friend does not believe in time dilation. He says that time is only a measurement that humans invented.

10:06 – Richard – On the topic of de-orbiting things: if an asteroid aimed at the Earth and could throw at a regular Earth-based throwing speed, would the speed be enough momentum to make the object eventually burn up in the atmosphere.

14:05 – RPKVids – When the Universe was smaller than an atom, were physics the same as they are now, like was there gravity, heat, cold, etc?

16:02 – LiveToLearn – Fraser, if we eventually confirm that Mars (Europa, Titan, Enceladus), etc. are biologically dead, would it make any sense to send some extremophiles to check out if they could survive long term?

17:30 – Aniket Yadav – If we could physically feel gravitational waves, what would they feel like?

18:53 – Brian Blatz – Dark matter is just a gap fill for flawed mathematics, fix your math and stop making excuses.
