At a press conference on SOFIA at the Winter 2021 meeting of the American Astronomical Association, Jessica Sutter, a postdoctoral researcher at USRA, spoke on “A Map of the Molecular Ring and Arms of a Spiral Galaxy.” That talk sparked the interest of Ethan Siegel, a science communicator and an astrophysicist who writes for Forbes, and for his blog, “Starts With A Bang.” His interview with Jessica, which was published on March 19, 2022, is an interesting and informative podcast demonstrating the uniqueness of SOFIA and its capabilities in the far infrared. It’s an excellent validation of SOFIA science. Listen to the podcast here.
