Episode 3: Exploring Saturn, with Carolyn Porco

Our guest today is Dr. Carolyn Porco, a planetary scientist who led the imaging team in studying and interpreting the images from the Cassini/Huygens mission to Saturn and its moon Titan.  She is senior research scientist at the space science institute in boulder, CO, adjunct prof at U of Colorado and U of Arizona. Her scholarly work as well as her efforts to convey science education and literacy to the public has won her many awards and recognitions. These include the Carl Sagan Medal from the American Astronmomical Society for Excellence in the communication of Science to the Public. In 2008 Wired Magazine named her one of 15 people the next president should listen to.

Dr. Carolyn Porco joins Justin Trottier at The Star Spot to discuss everything about Saturn: the mission, the moons, the rings, the possibility of life on Enceladus, and the momentous touchdown on Titan. She also shares her passion for science education and her special sense of the spiritual.

In Current in Space, guest journalist Amanda Gadke discusses the final adventure of the Discovery Space Shuttle.
