Featured on the August 15th, 2019 edition of ARIZONA SPOTLIGHT with host Mark McLemore:
- What is the Southern Ocean Climate and Carbon Modeling Program, aka SOCCOM? Meet Becki Beadling, a graduate student in the University of Arizona’s Department of Geosciences, and her advisor Joellen Russell, the Associate Professor of Geosciences and Thomas R. Brown Distinguished Chair in Integrative Science. They’ll explain why the research they are doing at sea near the Arctic is imperative to understanding global climate change.
- Jay Gallentine is an author and historian who uses a light-hearted style to describe stories about the space age that might otherwise be overlooked. His latest book is Infinity Beckoned: Adventuring Through the Inner Solar System, 1969-1989, published by University of Nebraska Press. Tony Perkins talked to Gallentine at the 10th annual Tucson Spacefest about events surrounding the Apollo 11 moon landing that you may not have heard about.
- And, from artists and engineers to cosplayers and children with sharp ideas about the next 50 years of space travel, Mark McLemore talks to visitors at Spacefest X about their passion for knowing more about the final frontier. Among those Mark talks with are cosplayer & model rocket builder Rockatellist, astrophotographer Ken Naiff and fine artist Amber Allen.
