DNews Google Hangout Series from Space Returns Tomorrow

/ Jun 23, 2014


DNews has found a quick route into space by joining up with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory for a relatively new Google Hangout series. “SpaceOut,” showcasing astounding topics in space like asteroids and meteors, features NASA’s JPL experts hosted by DNews anchors.

Having debuted on May 21, “SpaceOut” kicked off with host Trace Dominguez and Dr. Ian O’Neill, astrophysicist and Discovery News space producer, talking meteors with Dr. Amy Mainzer, Don Yeomans, and Brian Muirhead of NASA’s JPL. The next episode will take place tomorrow, June 24, at 7pm on the East Coast, discussing the Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2, NASA’s next big earth science foray.

The series occurs over monthly Google+ Hangouts, where the show’s host and its featured guests can talk easily online, letting viewers into the conversation as it transpires.

Barry Pousman, executive producer of Discovery Digital Networks’ TestTube, the home of DNews, elaborated, “NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory team understands the power of the web to reach, engage, and inspire, and we’re proud to work with [them] to bring space science to new audiences.”

JPL news and social media manager, Veronica McGregor, also emphasized the inclusiveness of presenting a series through Google Hangouts. “We invite space fans and space newbies to interact in real time with the scientists and engineers behind dozens of missions exploring our home planet, the solar system, and beyond,” she said.

Space enthusiasts and novice explorers alike can watch “SpaceOut” live on DNews’s Google+ page. All episodes end up on the DNews YouTube channel and on TestTube’s website.

Discovery Digital Networks’ DNews covers science and technology happenings through with Tara Long, Laci Green, and “SpaceOut’s” Dominguez through a platform that has been around since December 2012. It has gained over 26 million streams in March of this year, making DNews the network’s most popular series.
