Part of the Woman in the Machine Live Weekend 10-11 September 2021.

Bolster's research has seen him interview a number of important astronomers, and in these two 20-minute films he talks to Margaret Race, the planetary protector for Earth at NASA, and Seth Shostak, senior astronomer at SETI. Both discuss their fascinating jobs and the guiding figures that helped them get there.
