Mars Attacks of the Show

By Phil Plait | July 20, 2012 6:30 am

On Tuesday, July 17, I was a guest (via Skype) on G4TV’s "Attack of the Show". I talked with host Mo Mandel about astronaut food, and the ridiculously complex and knuckle-biting way the Mars Science Laboratory – aka Curiosity – will land on the Red Planet on August 5 (you may need to refresh the page to see the video):

[The audio quality was a bit dicey due to my headset, but hopefully next time (assuming there is one) we'll be able to use something better.]

This was fun! I like doing somewhat more irreverent interviews sometimes. And that video we talked about – Seven Minutes of Terror – really is amazing and worth watching.

    I don’t suppose you could introduce me to Candice Bailey.
