KCTS Interview with Gary Lagerloef, Part 2
[26-Jun-13] Dr. Gary Lagerloef provides an overview of the Aquarius mission, including the development of its salinity sensor leading up to its picture-perfect launch in June of 2011, and the deployment of the satellite's antenna allowing data to be collected. Dr. Lagerloef also explains how he first became interested in being a scientist, and why Aquarius' orbit can make it very difficult to see from the ground. (00:05:37) Credit: KCTS Public Television.
