Walk about the galaxy podcast
While in Geneva, Switzerland for a science conference this past September, I was able to temporarily renew my role as a member of the Walkabout The Galaxy podcast team. We talk about a recent study showing that an increase in asteroid dust on Earth 400 million years ago due to asteroid collisions may have affected life on Earth. Here's a picture of the podcast crew just after recording, celebrating with some cheese fondue and wine!
Is your favorite planet Jupiter or Saturn? On August 9th, 2019, Science Friday asked the public to weigh in as Dr. Scott Bolton and I discussed Saturn and its rings, Jupiter and its moons, the Juno Mission, Cassini Mission, and the upcoming Europa Clipper and Dragonfly Missions.
Check me out at TPR station speaking with Ira Flatow in this picture!
PBS NOVA: Front Row Seat to Saturn
After 13 years orbiting Saturn, the Cassini spacecraft began its "Grand Finale" in the Spring of 2017 before plummeting into the planet and completing its mission.
I spoke with PBS NOVA about what we hoped to learn about Saturn's rings just as those final orbits began.
