nextcasts: Space, Science, and Switzerland (Episode 1)

Exploring space data and research to better understand the challenges we face on Earth.

We are excited to announce a special podcast series in collaboration with the Consulate General of Switzerland in San Francisco titled Space, Science and Switzerland. Featuring expert interviews, the podcast explores Switzerland’s involvement in space research, challenges we face on Earth such as climate change, NASA’s recent Mission to Mars, and the role of international law and the UN in space.

The first episode features an interview with Maria Santos, Professor of Earth System Science at the University of Zurich (UZH), who discusses how space data and research is used to better understand challenges we face on Earth. Maria Santos has worked in California with both UC Berkeley and Stanford, and in Switzerland with UZH, and has collaborated with agencies such as NASA and ESA.
