UI Instrument On NASA Spacecraft And Media Culture In Turkey
What does weather in space have to do with us on Earth? A lot it turns out. Host Ben Kieffer talks with University of Iowa Astronomy Professor Craig Kletzing. He talks about the instrument created by University of Iowa researchers that is aboard NASA’s latest mission to study the extremes of space weather and help scientists improve space weather forecasts.
Then, David Perlmutter, Director of the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Iowa, talks about his trip this summer with other delegates to experience the culture of media in Turkey.
