This two-part radio broadcast first focuses on how scientists are re-evaluating their theories on how the Earth was formed, then on exploration for new life forms found in the sediments of ocean floors. By looking at volcanic hotspots, geologists can sample gases from deep inside the mantle of the Earth. These dissolved gases include particles from the solar wind and impacting asteroids. This broadcast ... Full description.
