Space Hangout with Britney Schmidt

This week's Cosmoquest Science Hangout featured me hosting planetary astronomer Britney Schmidt in a discussion about ice worlds, geologic activity on Europa, the current state of outer solar system exploration, and what scientists can do to support space exploration. Enjoy!

I didn't give people very much notice about this Hangout because Google recently rolled out a bunch of upgrades and I was not sure that Hangouts would be stable enough for this to work.  As soon as I am able to be 90% confident that the Hangouts will work when I do them, I'll start doing a much better job of advance advertising, I promise!

One of the recent Google updates has apparently fixed the problem that was preventing me from posting the recording of my last Hangout, with Venus researcher Robbie Herrick. Yay! So here's another recording, of another Hangout that you may have missed.

We know you love reading about space exploration, but did you know you can make it happen?
