Big Bang Theory? Fiction folks – this man is the REAL deal.
In the future, I believe Scott Maxwell’s contributions to space exploration will be more than a mere footnote in a history book somewhere. He’s a natural story teller with an eye on what’s important, and if I dare say, the dramatic and funny as well. He’s a geek who get’s Shakespear, can quote from The Princess Bride to make an all too funny point, and happens to be the frakin Mars Rover Driver Team Lead. We live in the future folks because there’ somebody in charge of driving more than one rover on another planet -now where’s my jet pack? Scott is one of the funnest and easiest interviews I’ve done. If you want a new drinking game, take a drink every time I laugh or giggle. Yeah, I geek out pretty bad – even when we talk musical theater. o.O
I seriously doubt any of you will blame me after listening to the show. Oh, want more incentive? Ever want to know how they did a brain transplant on a robot on Mars, from Earth? Yeah, I though you might. Enjoy!
