87: Visions of interstellar travel with Dr. Hurt

Dr. Robert Hurt  returns to the show to talk about artistic depictions of interstellar travel. We discuss the  images of the seven-planet TRAPPIST-1 system  he and Tim Pyle created— images that graced the cover of Nature and the front page of the New York Times. We also talk about Star Trek: The Next Generation, and what that TV show got right (and wrong) about the visuals of cruising through outer space.

83: Why we archive with Dr. Rebull

Dr. Luisa Rebull  explains why it is vital to archive astronomical images. NASA archives, such as the ones at  IPAC , are accessible everyone on Earth at no cost.
