The rich archaeological records of human space exploration can tell us much about human behavior, geopolitics, and the history of science and technology. In this episode we are joined by Alice Gorman of Flinders University in South Australia. Alice tells us about her research that explores archaeological perspectives derived from the artifacts left by humans on the moon from 1969 to 1972. She shares stories behind her article “Culture on the Moon: Bodies in Time and Space,” published in the April 2016 issue of Archaeologies: the Journal of the World Archaeological Congress.
