Science can explain what happens. But can it explain why anything happens at all?


Philosophy Talk asks about the Ancient Cosmos

Mar 15, 2016

How could the smartest, most observant people around believe for millennia that the sun and all the planets and stars all revolved around the Earth?


Ben Trefny

Paul Salazar, or – as he calls himself on his blog – the Urban Astronomer recently joined KALW’s Ben Trefny in studio to talk about what’s up with the universe.

On today's Your Call, in light of NASA’s historic landing of the $2.5 billion “Curiosity” rover on Mars, we’ll talk about space.  A planning group is taking a look at how the agency will continue exploring Mars beyond the missions operating today. Who decides where we explore?  What space missions are we NOT hearing about?  Join us at 10am PST or post a comment here. What role do you think NASA should play in the future?  It’s Your Call with Holly Kernan, and you.
