Mark Boslough is a Caltech-trained physicist and CSI Fellow who spent 34 years at Sandia National Laboratories doing research on hypervelocity impacts, energetic materials, explosions, and global risk from asteroid impacts and climate change. He has participated in many science documentaries with field expeditions to airburst locations including the Libyan Desert of Egypt in 2006, Tunguska in 2008, Chelyabinsk in 2013, and the Nevada Test Site in 2017.
Jim Underdown sits down with Mark Boslough to talk about Boslough’s career as a scientist and his work refuting the bogus claims of climate change deniers. They also dive into everything you’ve ever wanted to know about asteroids, meteoroids, and comets and what would happen if the Earth was struck by one.
