FURTHER. FASTER. Podcast Ep11 – Science at Extremes with Dr Melanie Windridge
In this edition we speak with Dr Melanie Windridge, she describes herself as a speaker and a writer… with a taste for adventure. Also, she is currently a plasma physicist working in fusion energy. This combined with a healthy obsession with the Northern Lights has led to her to write the groundbreaking book ‘Aurora: In Search of the Northern Lights’.
Melanie also has a blog called ‘Science At Extremes’ which led from her successful Everest expedition where she took a distinctly scientific perspective at climbing the mountain.
In this wide-reaching conversation, we spend time discussing the importance of science on expeditions to high altitude and in turn, what we can learn from exploring these zones.
Dr Melanie Windridge is a fascinating, inspiring and eloquent interviewee. Listen in.
