I am Dr. Laura Danly, an Astronomer and Curator at the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles. I am an observational astronomer, primarily from space telescopes like Hubble. I worked at NASA’s Space Telescope Science Institute for ten years. These days I produce and write planetarium shows, and I host a monthly live astronomy program called All Space Considered (some clips on Griffith Observatory’s YouTube channel).
And I am Derrick Pitts, Chief Astronomer and Planetarium Director at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. I am a NASA Solar System Ambassador, and host of award-winning astronomy radio programs for Philadelphia’s two public radio stations.
We each caught a ride with Commander Chris Hadfield, former commander of the International Space Station, for a joyride from the Sun to Pluto, in a new show called Miniverse on CuriosityStream. Think Cosmos meets Carpool Karaoke!

Ask us anything about space, science, astronomy, or anything else on your mind. And someone please ask what it’s like riding shotgun in a Tesla with a former test pilot during the filming of Miniverse!
Hey everyone, thanks for the great questions! Derrick and I are signing off, but we may check back in a few times later today. In the meantime, if you want to see how a couple of scientists handle the police, here you go:](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lQza2xvVTjQ)
