Space Plasma physicist, Daniel Verscharen of the Mullard Space Science Laboratory - part of University College London based in the Surrey countryside - is drawn to fast things- fast moving electrons in space plasma and a fast timeline to propose the new Debye mission, named for the late Nobel prizewinner in Chemistry. He explains what it’s like to plan a mission in less than a year and how it aims to explore plasma, the most abundant and fourth state of matter. Verscharen also remembers presenting at his first AGU meeting, and how the organization helps one see the big picture and collaborate internationally. (Recorded 12 December 2018)
