Newly-arrived at the Jet Propulsion Lab as a Principal Scientist, Bob Pappalardo is prepared to continue his investigations of Jupiter's icy moon Europa, including the push for a dedicated mission. He joins us at The Planetary Society studio for a conversation, including a description of the current expedition to the spot on Earth that may be most like Europa's surface.
