Time: 7 p.m. PDT (10 p.m. EDT; 0300 UTC)
Protecting the Earth from the scum of the universe... and the universe from the scum of Earth. We chat with Moogega Cooper (Mars 2020, Europa Clipper) about preventing contamination during missions around the solar system and making sure they don't bring anything dangerous back with them.
