Montane / Dr Melanie Windridge
An interesting look into the science behind climbing Mount Everest
Show Notes

Dr Melanie Windridge describes herself as a speaker and writer… with a taste for adventure. She's also a plasma physicist working in fusion energy. She's also a healthy obsession with the Northern Lights, leading to her to write the groundbreaking book, Aurora: In Search of the Northern Lights. 

Melanie also has a blog called Science at Extremes which led from her successful Everest expedition where she took a distinctly scientific look at climbing the mountain. 

In this wide-reaching conversation, we spend time discussing the importance of science on expeditions to high altitude and in turn, what we can learn from exploring these zones. 

Dr Melanie Windridge is a fascinating, inspiring and eloquent interviewee. Listen in.
