A fun and lively interview I did with Mat Kaplan on Planetary Radio – The Planetary Society’s radio/podcast – is now online. Mat and I talked about the terrible media reporting lately on science and astronomy stories, including Apophis, a possible planet in the outer solar system, and, of course, the “Supermoon”. As usual, I’m bombastic and occasionally accurate, so give it a listen.
Other segments of the half-hour podcast have my pal Emily Lakdawalla talking solar system missions (MESSENGER, Dawn, Mars and more), Bill Nye (yeah, that Bill Nye!) talking Kepler and Earth-like planets, and Bruce Betts on a biological experiment going up on Endeavour’s final flight.
I hope you like it! And please consider becoming a member of TPS. They do a great job promoting scientific exploration of the solar system.
