In this GeoShort, we give you a short preview to our full interview Dr. Jackie Faherty (coming out next week Thursday).  Dr. Faherty is an astronomer who now works at the American Museum of Natural History in New York.  Dr. Faherty is a prominent astronomer who has published and presented over 100 papers and has a really unique perspective on the Geosciences!  We were absolutely honored that she agreed to talk about astronomy, geoscience, and generally interesting topics on PlanetGeo!  In this GeoShort, she discusses Jupiter and why she calls it the "bouncer" of our solar system.  She believes that if another planet in some other solar system will be found to harbor life,  a Jupiter like planet must also exist in that solar system.

Jackie also gives us a glimpse into space time and why it's so difficult for humans to comprehend.  This GeoShort is informative and entertaining - Just a short glimpse into the full episode next week.
