Space and climate change Mission: Interplanetary

    • Science

On Mission: Interplanetary, we talk about space exploration as one of humanity’s greatest collective challenges. Another of those challenges is fighting climate change. How do these two overlap? Cady and Andrew talk with Dava Newman, Director of MIT’s Media Lab, whose non-profit Earth DNA uses satellite data to make the reality of our climate emergency legible to people on Earth. It’s a kind of dashboard for our planet! Also, Andrew solves a Rubik’s cube in record time, staying caffeinated, and a new Sounds of Space.
This week’s Sounds of Space is from the great folks at SYSTEM Sounds.
