In this episode, the Media Mavens team sits down to talk with Angelo Vermeulen, the Space Systems Researcher & Biologist at Delft University. Originally dedicating his work as a biologist, Vermeulen has currently two main focuses: working with biological information to embed into engineering programs, or as he says “build systems that evolve over time,” and bringing ecology into space for greater development and research of the endless void. “If we want to go into deep space for a much longer time than the kind of missions as we’re doing now, we’ll need ecology to sustain us,” Vermeulen said.            With the Mavens team, Vermeulen talks about bringing different life forms into space, the limitations of an environment [space] with limited oxygen, and the infinite variables Vermeulen and his team have to consider on missions.            Tune in this week to learn more about “Deconstructing Dominant Paradigms About the Future of Space Tourism” and the heroes working to bring us into the future!!

Dr. Death

Dr. Death

We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
