We love a good TED Talk. Here's one of our favorites.
Astrophysicist Anjali Tripath explains how the 400 pounds of hydrogen and almost 7 pounds of helium escape from Earth's atmosphere into outer space every minute may be transforming our planet into the next Martian enclave.
Tripathi studies the atmospheric escape and she considers how this process might one day (a few billion years from now) turn our blue planet red.
Tripathi arned degrees in physics and astronomy from M.I.T., the University of Cambridge and Harvard University. She is recognized as a promising American leader with a commitment to public service and was a 2016-17 White House Fellow.
