An Ode to the Sun (Listen, Don't Stare!)

Aug 22, 2017

We originally aired this show last August, a full year before the excitement over the solar eclipse. Enjoy!

What can you say about the sun? It sits not only at the center of our solar system but has, over time, been at the center of religions, scriptures, songs, art and countless other aspects of our culture.

We've relied on it's light, heat and gravity for as long as we've been around and continue to find ways to harness its energy for our daily needs. This hour, we look at the place our sun holds, not only in human history but in the cosmos as well and ask what the future holds for our nearest star.
