A Lot Of Space

A manned expedition to Mars is just one of the subjects space enthusiasts are excited about.

New planets, signals from deep space, Mars exploration, exploding satellites, astronauts setting records for time in space. It's been a wild few weeks for news about our galaxy and space exploration.

So we fire up the rocket boosters and go deep into the Milky Way and beyond to discuss all the latest space news.

Retired NASA Astronaut Gerald Carr and St. Michael's College Physics Professor John O'Meara are our guests.

Plus, we learn about a new online course at Green Mountain College in Poultney that helps parents adjust to and better support their children in college. Find out more here.

Broadcast on Thursday, Sept. 8, 2016 at noon and 7 p.m.
