Meaghan McElroy talks with Beth Ellen Clark Joseph , a physics professor at Ithaca College and a mission asteroid scientist for NASA. They discuss the OSIRIS-Rex mission to land on the asteroid Bennu and what that mission might tell us about the universe.

Also, Esther Racoosin talks with Zoe Learner Ponterio, manager of the Spacecraft Planetary Imaging Facility at Cornell. She curated a collection entitled “Postcards from Beyond: A Timeline of Exploration,” a selection of scientifically valuable and incredibly beautiful images captured in space. 

Finally, Faez Bakalian talked with Lisa Kaltenegger, an Exoplanet Expert and director of the Carl Sagan Institute at Cornell University, about the ingredients necessary for life on Earth and other planets.

The show was produced by Patricia Waldron.
