Inspiring talk from Cassini researcher

October 10, 2007

I’m a huge fan of the talks up at TED. Every so often they release talks from this past year’s conference as well as older talks from the past several years. One of the newest on their site is a talk by Carolyn Porco, a planetary scientist and leader of the imaging team for the Cassini-Huygens mission to Saturn and its moons.

I can’t figure out how to embed their videos on WordPress, so go here to see it on the TED website. Believe me, if you have 20 minutes, you should watch it. Not only are the images breathtaking but Porco’s delivery is exciting and inspirational.
