Building on the first episode of the season, University of California, Santa Barbara scientists Philip Lubin and Joel Rothman discuss Project Starlight, a NASA project that intends to send microscopic worms — among other creatures — into space. Lubin, the brainpower behind the directed energy facet of the project, identifies the considerable photonic advances that must be made before achieving atmospheric flight.
