Bright Sparks: Dr. Cindy Van Dover explores the deep sea
Cindy Van Dover is a deep sea biologist and the director of the Marine Laboratory at Duke University. In this short clip, Cindy tells us of her intrigue to explore the deep sea and how studying the survival of life forms in such an extreme environment can inform what we think about our planet and the potential for life on other planets.
Hear more from Cindy Van Dover and many other talented scientists when the full series of Bright Sparks airs on RTE Radio 1 later this year.
