Ellen Stofan, the Smithsonian’s Under Secretary for Science and Research, makes a timely appearance on today’s show. With a storied career that includes serving as NASA’s Chief Scientist from 2013-2016, Ellen provides an insider’s perspective on the latest developments around private and public space exploration. As she tells LionTree Executive in Residence Ariel Wengroff, “having multiple planets allows you to test models and...understand the Earth a lot better” - a clear advantage in the fight against climate change. It’s a fascinating conversation with a true scientific pioneer.
