Podcast: Europa in our Back Yard

Our “Beer with BMSIS” podcast for June features a conversation with Dr. Britney Schmidt titled Europa in our Backyard.

Dr. Schmidt discusses her field research in Antarctica and describes how this unique landscape on Earth presents an analog to icy worlds such as Europa. Scientists have been long interested in visiting Europa–and Dr. Schmidt describes some of these efforts underway–but in the meanwhile, we can learn from remote settings in our own back yard of planet Earth to learn about worlds currently beyond our reach.
