Planetary Radio – Live

Saturday December 17th - Live from KPCC in Pasadena

I am very excited to be attending the next “Planetary Radio Live” show this Saturday December 17th.

Planetary Radio LIVE returns to the Crawford Family Forum with another exciting show about space exploration. Bill Nye the Science Guy will join host Mat Kaplan for an exciting conversation about two robotic emissaries of humanity on the Red Planet.

The Planetary Society’s series will welcome John Callas, longtime manager of the Mars Exploration Rover program. Rover Opportunity is still trekking across Mars nearly eight years after its arrival. Representing a brand new mission will be Joy Crisp, Deputy Project Scientist for the SUV-sized “Curiosity,” also known as the Mars Science Laboratory.

Fans of the final frontier will be entertained by an appropriately spacey duo, local jazz vocalist KJ Williams and guitarist Laurence Yeung. KJ is also a roboticist with a Caltech PhD.

Your knowledge of space trivia may win you a Planetary Radio t-shirt!
