Astronomy Behind the Headlines - A Podcast for Informal Science

Episode 01 explores astrobiology and the search for life in the
universe, and includes an interview with Dr. Chris McKay from NASA
Ames Research Center. Dr. McKay researches  the evolution of the
solar system and the origin of life and is actively involved in
planning for future Mars missions including human exploration.

Episode 02 explores cosmic debris - meteors, asteroids, and comets -
and includes an interview with Dr. Peter Jenniskens of the SETI
Institute. In 2008, Dr. Jenniskens tracked a small asteroid that hit
the Earth and was able to locate pieces of it in the Nubian Desert.
This was the first example of a chunk of cosmic material that was
both seen coming in and found on the ground after it crashed.

Stay tuned for a new episode of Astronomy Behind the Headlines each
