William C. “Bill” Stone is the president and CEO of Stone Aerospace. He is an American engineer, caver (spelunker), and explorer known for exploring deep caves. Sometimes he does this with the use of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUV).
Bill begins by telling us about his background, what got him into exploring caves, and the goals of embarking on expeditions into the dark depths of the Earth. He then talks about what it’s like to be down in a cave, as well as what drives his passion for spelunking.
Next, Bill talks about their robotics project, as well as preparations and their study of Jupiter’s moon, Europa. Bill also talks about the expenses for this expedition, as well as answer the question of how they’ll be able to convey their study and findings on Europa. He then proceeds to give some facts about the red planet, Mars, as well as their expectations about Europa.
Bill goes on to talk about the use of the cryobot in their Europa study, as well as about the biggest question in life. He answers some questions about how they’re planning to get their equipment all the way out to Jupiter, as well as what his dreams of success are.
A conversation that stretches from the deep, dark and damp recesses of the Earth and all the way into the vastness of outer space. Truly an eye opening conversation that gives us not only a look at what’s inside our planet, but what is all the way out there.
Very interesting conversation, guys. Enjoy the episode.
