Monday, April 27th, 2015- Krista Soderland shares how to explore our solar system

15Jan

Ever wonder how scientists learn about other planets?  Tune in this week as Dr. Krista Soderland, from the Institute of Geophysics here at UT, joins us to talk about her work exploring the solar system.  Krista works specifically with modelling how other nearby planets generate their magnetic fields, which might surprise you with their diversity!  She also shares her experience travelling to Antarctica and how that relates to possibly finding extraterrestrial life on one of Jupiter’s moons, Europa.

The Daily Texan, the University of Texas’s student daily, hosts a weekly science news column, Science Scene.  With contributors from both graduate and undergraduate over a range of scientific disciplines, Science Scene provides a unique and perspective on science news pertinent to the local community but also the rest of the country.  Robert Starr, Paepin Goff, and Hellen Airhart sit down with us in the booth to talk about the writing process, finding stories, while the Albino Squirel isn’t really albino, and other tidbits of science communication.
