Hey Closers, us again!

This episode of the Close of Business podcast features an interview with Bruce Betts, the Chief Scientist at The Planetary Society, a nonprofit space research and technology foundation led by CEO Bill Nye (the Science Guy). Kevin and Becca sat down with Bruce at the Singularity University Global Summit to discuss the Planetary Society’s recent successful mission on the LightSail project, what the Planetary Society aims to accomplish, solar sailing technology, and planetary defense. But first, we ask Bruce our most urgent questions about space: Are aliens real? Can a cow REALLY jump over the moon? Tune in to hear answers to these and other VERY important questions from a space expert.
