Josh Richards

You might have seen this comedian, explorer and future astronaut before on our coverage of WOMADelaide and the space quiz show Make Me A Martian. Before becoming a Mars One astronaut candidate, Josh worked in jobs ranging from explosives to stand up comedy. He even spent a week living inside a glass box.

Science and technology is as much a part of our cultural fabric as art, music, theatre and literature. They play a significant role in our daily lives, yet, in a world dependent on science, we often take them for granted. Australia’s Science Channel believes every citizen has a right, and a responsibility, to be informed, and our mission is to create programs to bring that about.
