A: Hello Jill and welcome to the show.
B: Thank you.
A: So, tell us what you do for a living.
B: Well, I go on expeditions to explore underwater caves.
A: That sounds amazing. You’ve broken some records, haven’t you?
B: Yes, I have. I broke the world record for distance travelled underground, spending 21 hours underwater and I became the first woman to cave dive in the Antarctic, too.
A: Now that was the expedition that really made your name, wasn’t it, Jill?
B: Yes, that’s right. I explored the caves in the largest iceberg on the planet there, B-15.
A: What was that experience like, Jill?
B: Hard to describe, really. We found a dazzling underwater world there of sea stars and other amazing creatures. It was quite dangerous, though.
A: Really? Why’s that?
B: Well, while we were in the cave, a piece of ice crashed into the entrance. We were trapped by strong currents, too, and only managed to escape by pulling ourselves along by finding handholds in the ice wall. Just two hours later, the iceberg shattered.
A: Doesn’t this kind of incident put you off cave diving, Jill?
B: No, not at all. I think we should face our fears.
A: That’s great. Jill, could your work affect future space missions?
B: Absolutely. A 3D mapping device might be used on a mission to the underwater caves of Europa, one of the moons of Jupiter.
A: That’s very interesting. Thank you so much for coming on the show today, Jill. I wish you good luck with all your future expeditions and other plans.
B: Thank you so much. It’s been a pleasure.
