Trying to figure out the ‘what can you do?’ section of this week’s podcast was interesting given that we were talking to trailblazing astrophysicist; scientist; one of TIME Magazine’s 100 most influential people in the world and one of Nature magazines ten most prominent scientists worldwide Guillem Anglada-Escudé, who discovered the Proxima-b exoplanet orbiting Proxima-Centauri, our closest neighbouring star.
