Posted on May 25, 2012 by


In this episode, Neil gets a guided tour of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, and talks to JPL scientist Kevin Hand.

Kevin Hand is Deputy Chief Scientist of Solar System Exploration at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. He is an astrobiologist and a planetary scientist, most concerned with studying the Jovian moon Europa. This has led him to Antarctica, and to deep sea hydro-thermal vents, which he did as part of the team on James Cameron’s 2005 IMAX documentary Aliens of the Deep. He was also a scientist on Cameron’s record breaking 2012 Challenger Deep expedition.
