Ice, Snow and Lava: Exploring Antarcticas Mount Erebus
Earths southernmost active volcano may also be its most remote. Rosaly Lopes and Michael Carroll recently spent a few frigid days on the slopes of Antarcticas Mount Erebus. What they learned may help us understand volcanos on other worlds. Emily Lakdawalla shows us stunning new, close-up images of Saturns rings. Bill Nye says a LightSail solar sail prototype has gone on display in a London museum. How could black holes help answer a space trivia contest question about Earth and Saturn? Also, an encore presentation of a visit with the late Gene Cernan, last astronaut to walk on the moon.
Featured Speakers: Rosaly Lopes, Michael Carroll, Bill Nye, Mat Kaplan, Emily Lakdawalla, Bruce Betts.
