Talk to the Editor: The planet and beyond

The Monitor's Pete Spotts explores science issues, ranging from the health of our home planet (earthquakes, global warming) to the future of space missions.

This image of Earth shows the entire North American continent, Central America, the northern half of South America, Greenland and the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans.

Join us Thursday at 1 pm EST for a conversation with Pete Spotts, the Monitor's science reporter. Pete has reported on the earthquakes that have hit Haiti and Chile in recent weeks and explores whether the Earth is more unsettled than in the past. Pete will also look at global climate change -- what is known and what is now being questioned. And he can take your questions on the future of space exploration.

Pete joins Monitor editor John Yemma to answer your questions.

The conversation will be webcast in this blog via Ustream. You can watch it live here.
