Exogeology ROCKS! Episode 12

Posted by Zoe on 29th November 2014 in Main Page

In this episode, we meet Dr. Dante Lauretta, Professor of Planetary Science at the University of Arizona and Principal Investigator for the OSIRIS-REx mission.

I’ve talked about the OSIRIS-REx mission before, and it’s one of the coolest things going on in exogeology: they’re going to send a spacecraft to an asteroid and bring back a piece. Wonder what it’s like to be in charge of all of that? Watch the video below to find out!

For more information, check out the OSIRIS-REx website, Xtronaut’s website, and the 321Science! videos.

In Exogeology ROCKS! Episode 10, we talk with Dr. Rosaly Lopes, a planetary scientist at JPL. She tells us all about volcanoes on Io, cryovolcanism on icy moons like Enceladus, and her travels to Earth volcanoes. I liked hearing about how you should do what you love, and how as a scientist, you always have to keep learning. Her story about catching a gigantic volcanic eruption on Io during the Galileo mission is really interesting. Watch it all here:
