The Interplanetary Lab

SaturneclipseIn the latest episode of the Global Lab podcast, I talk to Dr Nick Attree about his work studying Saturn using photos from NASA’s Cassini orbiter. Nick tells me about a new feature, called a mini-jet, that he has discovered in Saturn’s outermost ring. We also discussed the amazing recent photos of Pluto sent back by the New Horizons spacecraft.

Nick had only handed in the final version of his PhD thesis a few days before the interview, so I think we were the first to officially call him Doctor!

Global Lab interview: Mapping in disaster zones

My interview with Matt Pennells is now available on my Global Lab Podcast page.

In the interview, Matt talks about his work with MapAction, a UK based charity that sends volunteers to disaster-hit regions around the world, providing maps for the international agencies that respond to humanitarian catastrophes.

This episode of the podcast also features guerrilla-geographer Daniel Raven-Ellison talking to Martin Zaltz Austwick about turning London into a ‘National Park City’, and materials scientist Anna Ploszajski talking to Rob Levy about hydrogen fuel cells.

Upcoming Global Lab Interview

Just conducted an interview with GIS expert, Matt Pennells, for the Global Lab podcast, on his work for the UK disaster response charity MapAction, a UK charity that provides rapid response mapping services in crisis-hit regions (they are currently working in Vanuatu).

The interview should go out as part the next episode (“In the field”), some time in the next week or two. I will post a link when it is available.

Other episodes of the Global Lab that I have contributed to are collected HERE.

I’ve added a page that collects together all the episodes of The Global Lab (CASA‘s science communication podcast) that I have been involved with. Listen to my interviews with civil violence mathematician Peter Baudains, urban navigation expert Ed Manley and spatial technology archaeologist Paul Wordsworth (all of whom are Doctors or soon-to-be Doctors).
