Dr Carolyn Porco is one of the world’s leading planetary scientists and the woman responsible for bringing us awe-inspiring pictures of Saturn and its numerous moons. As she visits the UK to lecture at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, she talks to Jane about her role in NASA’s Cassini mission to Saturn.

As usual with WH and science tho, some pretty bloody stupid questions. Evil or Very Mad
