Last year the American Geophysical Union (AGU) put out an open call for entries to its "Younger Scientists Video Profiles" project, so I applied. The main purpose of the project was to attract kids to geoscience careers and to give the public a better understanding of what AGU member scientists do. My tsunami work and astronaut ambitions gained their attention, so AGU representatives interviewed me on camera at the Exploratorium in San Francisco during last December's AGU Fall Meeting. Later, they featured me in a blog post about the Chile tsunami too. At long last, now my video profile has been posted on the AGUvideos YouTube channel. It features footage taken both in San Francisco and on my FMARS mission. Check it out:
You can see still photos from all of the Younger Scientists who participated in this project on the AGU Facebook page and Flickr Photostream. Special thanks to MJ for making this happen.
