From Developing Carbon Neutral Cement to Space Habitats and Landing Pads on the Moon, Mars and Beyond - An Interview with Allan Scott
Show Notes

An interview with  Dr. Allan Scott,  Associate Professor at the University of Canterbury, College of Engineering.  Allan has  a masters of Science in Engineering and a Doctor of Philosophy from Cape Town.  HIs primary research is related to understanding the influence of material properties and environmental conditions on the durability of reinforced concrete structures, and the development of durability models to assist in the prediction of service life and the optimization of repair strategies.

Most recently, he is the co-founder of Aspiring Materials, a research service on the industrialization and implementation of strategies and materials that will reduce global industrial carbon dioxide emissions and provide 'boutique' answers for critical/unusual problems whether on Earth, Mars, or the Moon.

In this interview, we are going to learn about Alan’s work in material science  and how new innovation in developing carbon neutral  cement can be leveraged to buld critical components like space habitats and landing pads on the Moon, Mars and beyond.
