Today, we have the pleasure of hosting Laura Kreidberg as our podcast guest. Laura is the Director at the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy in Heidelberg, where she is leading the establishment of the Atmospheric Physics of Exoplanets (APEx) department. Laura delves into the significance of our planet’s uniqueness and the pressing need to recognize that there is no “Planet B”. We explore insights from her research on exoplanets and we delve into the importance of fostering increased conversations and collaboration between scientific and engineering communities.
Enjoy the conversation!
