3/22/16 Show feat. Lucianne Walkowicz on exoplanets, Brian on fusion rockets, and muchos music

For this show I decided to replay an interview recorded last December 2015 with the extremely intelligent and talented Lucianne Walkowicz. For LOTS of extra information on the interview, links to her TED talks, and information on her band DITCH CLUB, check out the original post on the interview. (Don’t be shy!) We talked about the Kepler telescope and how it finds exoplanets, tardigrades, and why some people think one star observed by Kepler (“Tabby’s star”) could be an alien megastructure – no joke.

Additionally, Brian and I chatted for a while (around 1.5 hours in) about the prospect of fusion rockets, and in particular developing them to shoot down apocalypse-inducing asteroids. Here’s a press release from NASA on developing fusion rockets.
