The Exploration podcast is a place for curiosity, creative thinking and conversation. Each episode, join partner Andrew Bullmore and a variety of guests as they discuss the big topics shaping society, planet, and the built environment.

In episode five…

…join Andrew as he chats to two fascinating experts in extreme environments: Scott Parazynski, an American physician and a former NASA astronaut, who completed five Space Shuttle flights and seven spacewalks; and Kelvin Murray, a Professional Diver and Expedition Leader who has undertaken exploratory missions on every continent and ocean on our planet.

They discuss the preparation and training needed for extreme environments, as well as the ground-breaking Blue Abyss project, which aims to become the world’s premier facility for deep-sea and space research, training and testing.

Look out for part 2 coming later in the year, where the pair talk teamwork and the new perspectives provided by extreme exploration.
