Marvelous Martian MAVEN
MAVEN, the Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution orbiter, has gone a long way toward solving the mystery of the Red Planets missing water and air. The University of Colorados Nick Schneider says it is also revealing gorgeous clouds, auroras and glowing skies. From the Sun to Pluto–so many North Poles! Planetary Society CEO Bill Nye the Science Guy has seen them in a recent blog post from Emily Lakdawalla. What do the late John Glenn and baseball great Ted Williams have in common? Far more than you may know, as we learn from Bruce Betts in this weeks year-ending Whats Up segment.
Featured Speakers: Marilynn Flynn, Simon Kregar, Rick Sternbach.
