The folks from the Space Telescope Science Institute, Goddard Space Flight Center, Johnson and Kennedy Space Centers, the University of Wyoming, and the Center for Astronomy and Physics Education Research will show you astronomical discoveries, talk about ongoing cutting-edge space science activities, and discuss issues about science education. Please join us for news from the final frontier.
Our science guests this year: Paul Abell, Lucy Albert, David Batchelor, Wayne Bird, Kirk Borne, Caroline Cox, Dwayne Day, Jerry Feldman, Larry Hubble, Yoji Kondo, Dawn Myers, Eric Schulman, Stephanie Slater, Tim Slater, and Ray Villard. More guests will be announced as they are confirmed.
