In this segment, Micah is joined by author Rod Pyle, space and science writer, and author of several books which include his latest work, Interplanetary Robots: True Stories of Space Exploration. Rod has worked for years as a reporter on space exploration and technologies used by NASA and other space agencies, having attended several monumental NASA JPL events where he was on-hand in real time as we landed rovers on Mars. His reporting on the way robots have been used in space exploration brings a number of remarkable stories, and also puts a personal touch, on what some might call “the real-life Star Trek.” The final frontier may be awaiting human entry into space, but our interplanetary robots have already been there for decades.
