Astrobiology at NASA: The Ask an Astrobiologist Show

The Ask an Astrobiologist Show from NASA features a series of live interviews in which the general public is invited to submit questions to a guest astrobiologist. Since its launch in November 2016, the program just recently completed its twelfth interview with Dr. Shawn Domagal-Goldman of the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center on March 20, 2018. The show is hosted by Sanjoy Som - a planetary scientist and astrobiologist who founded the non-profit organization Blue Marble Space. A variety of astrobiology experts are interviewed for the show: Sara Imari Walker, a theoretical physicist at Arizona State University; Darlene Nim, a geobiologist at the NASA Ames Research center; and Juan Perez Mercader, a Harvard University professor and founder of the Centre de Astrobiologia. In each episode, Som first interviews guests about their work and path to becoming a scientist. In the second part of each episode, each guest scientists answers questions submitted by viewers on Twitter (though the hashtag #AskAstroBio) or through the SAGANet chat room (available through a link on this website). Visitors can check out all previous Ask an Astrobiologist episodes on this website.
