In this special, part two episode, we discuss the historic release of Binar-1 from the International Space Station on 6 October 2021 and how the crew had almost lost hope until a colleague received transmission while driving on a Perth freeway two weeks later.

We then chat about what data the crew will acquire, the purpose of Binars 2–7 and the Binar Prospector, and the broader economic, environmental and social impacts of the program on WA and the world.
