Ariel Waldman on Antarctica – The Informed Life

“It’s a very creative time for people from different disciplines to be trying to help us figure out if we can detect life in our solar system, or even life on exoplanets.”

My guest today is NASA advisor, author, and YouTube videographer Ariel Waldman. Ariel describes what she does as making “massively multiplayer science” — that is, “creating unusual collaborations that infuse serendipity into science and space exploration.” In this episode, we focus on her recent sojourn documenting microscopic life in Antarctica, and how managing information in such a remote, demanding environment calls for self-reliance and thoughtful preparation.
