Blue Dot 54: Andrew Shapiro & Bill Nye/Genius Review

May 11, 2017

Plans are on the drawing table at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory to explore the hottest scientific target in the solar system — Jupiter's icy moon Europa. Recent findings indicate that it has all the ingredients needed to support life — oceans of liquid water, heat coming from deep within the world and the basic organic chemistry of life. We talk to Andrew Shapiro about missions to explore Europa as well as other fascinating new technologies that are on the cutting edge of astronomy and space exploration. It's a look into the future, and promises to amaze and fascinate. Plus Dave and Nolan give their take on the new Netflix Series Bill Nye Saves The World and the National Geographic Channel's Genius — a fascinating look at the life of Albert Einstein starring Geoffrey Rush.
