A geochemist gets down to earth about how life began on our planet.

Recently, Henderson "Jim” Cleaves, a geochemist with the Tokyo Institute of Technology, visited the National MagLab to do research and to talk on camera about his work. Of course, we threw in a catch: He had to explain it in two minutes!

We recorded two takes of those interviews, one for scientists (with MagLab physicist Julia Smith asking the questions) and one for the masses (with MagLab Public Affairs Director Kristin Roberts). Watch both in the video below!
