Don Yeomans and Richard Cook from NASA/JPL were recently featured on Time Magazine's 100 most influential people list.

Today, Yeomans manages NASA's near-earth object program, and Cook's the project manager for the Mars Science Laboratory. Earlier I had both of them in the studio to get updates on the the Mars Rover Curiosity and to find out if any asteroids were going to smash into Earth anytime soon.
