Mars' magnetic field

Were going on an unexpected trip to NASA Ames in November. A vip tour! Can't wait.

We interviewed David Brain today who studies Mars' magnetic fields. He produces amazing imagery as a result of the data and his own visualisation programming. We had a great interview with him and got some really inspiring footage.

We also interviewed John Bonnell who was testing the Electric Field Instrument that will be going on the THEMIS satellite. He gave us a good logistical lowdown on everything THEMIS.

John Bonnell doing things the technical way!
