Explore the Moon, near-Earth asteroids and Mars from the stage of San Francisco’s Nourse Theater with guest host Bill Nye, co-host Eugene Mirman and guests astrophysicist Dr. Yvonne Pendleton, “Mars Czar” Dr. G. Scott Hubbard and comedian H. Jon Benjamin of Bob’s Burgers and Archer. Go searching for water sources on the Moon (there are 3!) and learn why there’s even more water on Mars. Find out what we need to know before we go exploring asteroids or Mars, or, as SSERVI Director Pendleton says, “What to wear, where to touch, and what to flush.” Closer to home, you’ll hear about the Chelyabinsk and Tunguska events and how big an asteroid would need to be to be a planet killer. Scott, who was the former Director of the NASA Ames Research Center, explains how the Sentinel Mission looks for asteroids – “You can’t deflect them if you can’t find them” – and the problems he has with NASA’s Asteroid Redirect Mission.
