During our 90 minute one segment discussion, we took a call from Paul of the Humane Society making the case for better protection of animals on Earth given the lengths we seem to be going to in order to protect possible alien life on Mars and elsewhere. He refrenced the Outer Space Treaty and Article 9 which focuses on Planetary Protection. We had quite a discussion about this so don't miss it.
