Mary Hudson and Bill Lotko are both professors at Dartmouth University and researchers at the National Center for Atmospheric Research. Both study space physics, with Mary focusing on Van Allen radiation belts, and Bill looking at interactions between the magnetosphere and the ionosphere. Mary was the principal investigator for a project which mapped the aurora for the first time. Bill was chair of the NSF’s space modeling program. Individually and together, they try to get interagency cooperation to study – and understand - space weather as never before. “We’d like to be able to predict what climate is in the future more accurately.” (Recorded 13 December 2018)
