Dr. David Grinspoon, planetary scientist, is a frequent guest and
contributor to The Chris & Rob Show. As such, anytime there
is a space probe or breaking news regarding outer space,
Dr. Grinspoon fills Chris & Rob in on the cosmic details.
"The Earth is like a big Lava Lamp inside."
- Dr. David Grinspoon
Dr. Grinspoon's most recent appearance on The Chris & Rob Show started
with discussion of things cosmic and universal. Whoa.
Space probes New Horizons (Jupiter/Pluto) and Venus Express,
and a new extra-solar planet called Gleise 581,
were the highlighted discussion points of the show.
All the shows with Grinspoon are fun, but this one
was pretty much fun and then some.
