[Video] Interview: Dr. Moriba Jah, Astrodynamicist, head of SOBS at University of Arizona

by Ron Sparkman | @UpportunityU

In today’s interview, we speak with Dr. Moriba Jah, Astrodynamicist and Director of University of Arizona‘s Space Object Behavioral Sciences Initiative (or SOBS).

With the 22,000 objects orbiting our planet (More than 500,000 if you count the tiny pieces), only 1,500 or so are actually operational. The rest is trash. This is going to be a major problem in our future moving forward and this is where Dr. Jah and his project comes in.

We cover topics like the definition of an astrodynamicist, his work on JPL Mars projects, how his work led him to want to fix the space junk problem, and his advice for upcoming scientists.

 

Make sure to follow Dr. Jah on Facebook for all the most recent updates on his work and check out the website for his project here.
