We follow last week’s conversation with Ann Druyan about the $100 million funding of the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence by visiting with two of the scientists who will do the work: Dan Werthimer of UC Berkeley and Karen O’Neil of the Green Bank Telescope. Emily Lakdawalla and Bill Nye return to their regular slots, while Bruce and Mat ogle this year’s slick new Lunar Rover model.
What is the only Apollo Lunar Module whose Ascent Stage probably still survives in space?
The answer will be revealed next week.
Question from the week before:
If you were a car company trying to market the Apollo mission Lunar Roving Vehicle, what would you name it, and what would your slogan be? There is no right answer. Answers will be judged based on humor and/or effectiveness or whatever other criteria we feel like.
