Last Show Recap

John Brandenburg, PhD, a plasma physicist, discussed data he presented at the prestigious Lunar and Planetary Science Conference on evidence for nuclear detonations on Mars, in the first half.

In the latter half, UFO researcher Kevin D. Randle spoke about his involvement in what began as an investigation into a woman's alien abduction, but evolved into her past life regression, in which she learned she'd had a string of lives as a serial killer.

Biography:

Robert Hogg works as a Robotics Engineer in JPL's Mobility Systems Concept Development section. He developed systems and behavior software for the JPL Tactical Mobile Robot project and then later lead the team for two years and concluded the project with a successful delivery of the DARPA program's final Perception Packbot. Robert created and lead the Micro-Robot Explorer research task, which involved robotic research for adaptable sensor webs and advanced mobility in small robots. The first robot created by the task, the Spiderbot, has demonstrated small, low-power, inexpensive, leg-based mobility, and has tickled the imaginations of thousands of people.

Robert began his career as a JPL flight software engineer for Deep Space One, a spacecraft that tested 12 advanced high-risk technologies in space and returned priceless images from Comet Borrelly. His teams received the JPL Award for Technical Excellence for these projects in 1999 and 2000. Robert graduated with honors from the University of California Los Angles in 1998 with a B.S. in Computer Science and Engineering.
