Planetary Society Hangout: LaserBees, Asteroids, and Planet Vacuums

Thursday, Jun 13, noon PDT/1900 UTC

Dr. Bruce Betts, Director of Projects for the Planetary Society, will join me to highlight the progress being made on some of our current programs funded by the Planetary Society, including:

We'll also have an update on an upcoming live broadcast of Planetary Radio from host Mat Kaplan, and the latest on the weird budget situation at NASA regarding Planetary Science (more bad news).

Questions are encouraged! Tweet questions with hashtag #planetarylive, or post comments on our Google Plus event page or YouTube page where the video is broadcast.

I will embed the video in this post a few minutes before noon PDT. If you don't see the video, or the video is not working, please reload the page. Google Hangouts are notoriously finicky, and sometimes technical problems delay us a few minutes...
