The polar regions are Earth’s window to outer space. As part of our International Space Apps global coverage Gov 2.0 Radio drops in to the ice continent talking with Clay Ellis in Antarctica and Brian McLaughlin in Maryland, United States. Clay is McMurdo Ground Station operator with the NASA Space Communications Network Services (SCNS) project. Brian, formerly with Hubble and LandSat, is the Lead for Simulator Development with the Joint Polar Satellite System (JPSS) program. We discuss life under Antarctic conditions; McMurdo’s role as a fast-access data gateway for the world’s weather services and others; as well as how opening and sharing data creates new opportunities for scientists and citizens.
