Episode 17 — A Tale of Two Craters, and a Shoemaker
While sorting through pictures for some “Scientific tourist” blog posts, it occurred to me that two of them together told an interesting tale. Listen in on this episode, and find out how two craters — one in Arizona and one in Bavaria — helped a man named Eugene Shoemaker reshape how geology is conducted, and invent the field of planetary geology as a scientific discipline.
