Episode 35: “Mars” Edition (audio)

Posted by jnshaumeyer on 15 October 2015

Streamed live on 14 Oct 2015.

The Red Planet was on our mind today when we talked to Bruce Jakosky, MAVEN Mission Principal Investigator and author of “Science, Society, and the Search for Life in the Universe”; and James Green, Director of NASA’s Planetary Sciences Division, and consultant for Ridley Scott’s “The Martian”.

We talked about Mars, missions to Mars, “The Martian”, what it means to search for life in our Solar System and the universe, and the urge to explore in humans, along with how science can engage the interest of the non-scientist public.
