Episode #303

KQED Plus: Wed, Jul 4, 2012 -- 7:00 PM

First, a profile of citizen scientist Roger Castillo. A safety-repair mechanic who spends his time working on large fork lifts, Castillo volunteers to monitor fish and the water quality of the Guadalupe River in his spare time. While walking the river bank with his dog in 2005, Castillo made a remarkable discover - the bones of a mammoth that caused a major stir among paleontologists and geologists. Join us to unlock the mystery of "Lupe," the baby mammoth.
Then visit Moffet Field, the NASA Ames Research Center, and Dr. Natalie Batalha. Her job isn't your average 9-to-5 gig: She's the deputy science team director of the Kepler Mission, a search for inhabitable planets in our galaxy. We bet her findings will surprise you.
