There is little that is cooler than robots on mars doing science. But the last decade or so has seen space robots such as Mars Curiosity Rover sciencing the shit, as they say, out of the planet Mars. Emily Lakdawala, of the Planetary Society, is a planetary geologist and science communicator who knows a lot about driving rovers. So, for all these reasons, Mike Haubrich and I were very happy to have the opportunity to interview Emily on Ikonokast. We also threw in some suggestions for books related to Mars science and space exploration, and links to Emily's blog, etc.
