    Expert of the Week!

    Hello people of BAUT!!

    This week we'll be organising a Q&A session with an expert YOU choose.

    As we previously used to do in UT, I'd contact an expert from the space/astronomy field and you ask your questions. Then, we submit the final questions to the expert and get them answered exclusively by him. And the Q&A will be published in the newsletter.

    So, who'd u like to be the victim of the week? Give me your suggestions! ;-)

    - Ola

    Frank Drake? I'd love to find out his views on the possibility of life on other planets now that dozens of extra-terrestrial planets have been discovered.

    Someone involved with the Mars rovers would be nice at some point.
    Everything I need to know I learned through Googling.

    I could probably talk to Jim Bell or (if I can find him) Steve Squyres if need be.

    There are simply too many to choose from ...
    Which probably translates to "it doesn't matter who you can pin down ... if the scientist has any cred ... we'll most likely have the questions/suggestions and accolades to throw!"

    Sorry I missed the Seth session ...

    Carolyn Porco, Steve Squyres, David Levy, and the hundred names which escape me right now (and will pop into my head at some completely irrelevent moment about 3 days from now...)
