Emily live!

By Phil Plait | May 13, 2008 5:00 pm

Emily Lakdawalla, the blogger for The Planetary Society, has learned from the master. She will be hosting a live video chat Wednesday May 14 (tomorrow) at 3:00 p.m. Pacific time (22:00 UT) on her UStream channel. You can get more info on her blog.

I’ll be there in the chat room, and I urge everyone else to take a look too. Emily is very knowledgeable and very funny, so I’m sure this’ll be a good way to spend an afternoon.

    Great, hopefully her live stream will be as entertaining and informative as the BA stream.

    I will be in the chatroom but I will not hear anything because I will at work and the computer do not have sound, one thing is she is better loking then the BA.

  3. Yes, a lot of hair in the head, and very little hair in the rest of the body. That’s more like it.

  4. Huh. She sorta looks like me. Perhaps I will tune in.

    Redhead… I’m a sucker for redheads. Now if BA got a red wig, that would be something to see.

  6. Actually, Jewel, that occurred to me too. I think together you would look very different, but in the picture there’s a resemblance.

  7. You’re probably right, Phil. People tend to look a bit different in person than in photographs.

  8. @Jewel

    Indeed. I usually look like this in photographs:

    But in person, I’m not quite that tall.

  9. LOL! You actually resemble PZ!

  10. Speaking of which, Phil, remember when you talked about the ridges in Phobos during the last vid chat? Emily has a great entry on that somewhere in that huge blog of hers (and PS’es too, of course). In a nutshell, she says they might have been generated by ejecta flying off from a big impact on Mars. Too late around here (and I’m too sleepy) to go dig it up right now, but I might do it tomorrow if you’re interested.

    Nice reply on the “ethereal” characteristic of dark matter too, BTW… :)

  11. @jewel

    Indeed, you do look like EL, at least in a sisterly way.

    LOL! You actually resemble PZ!

    I never really thought of that before, but I suppose I sort of do resemble him. Something makes me recall that he’s about 5’9 or so, which would make me quite a bit taller.

    We came about our cephalopodity quite differently I suspect.

    Evolving Squid – are you really the Flying Spaghetti Monster?!

    If so, please bless me with your noodly appendages, please!

  13. No, I am merely a manifestation of a multi-dimensional being who inhabits this world because chicken vindaloo is so damn tasty and can’t be had outside this solar system.

    Lister?

  15. Wish the world would be ruinning on UTC. Note to BA: It’s midnight for me when Emily goes online :(

  16. Now I have a craving for chicken vindaloo. lol.

    I should be getting home from work around the time of the broadcast, so hopefully I’ll be able to tune in. Should be fun.

    Her blog is awesome. I joined the Planetary Society mostly because of it. I urge other readers to join too.

  18. I used to be a Planetary Society member. I let my membership lapse a while back, but not for any good reason. I suspect laziness…I’m thinking about forgoing laziness and rejoining, though.

  19. Emily’s chat was fantastic! Thanks Phil for posting about it.
