space interview podcast

Which planets are hot? Does a planet made of diamonds exist? Why hasn’t there been an astronaut on the moon for 50 years? Has a spaceship ever flown near a black hole? Are humans treating space as badly as we’re treating our oceans? Students at the Gillen Brewer School interview Dr. Erika Nesvold and ask her all of these questions and more!
