04: Jamie Foster, Ph.D. - Space Biologist, Cephalonaut Enabler


In this episode, we hear from Dr. Jamie Foster, Space Biologist, Professor at the University of Florida's Department of Microbiology and Cell Sciences, Space Life Science Lab.

She discusses with us, exactly what a Space Biologist does, how this impacts all science and humanity as a whole.  And most importantly what are squids doing in space, and how she preps them for space travel!
