Episode CIII

Tonight, Episode CIII will feature a biography of a little known, but very important space flight and rocketry pioneer, Milton W. Rosen. In addition, MPR will present the next installment of H. G. Wells’ masterpiece, The War of the Worlds. Tune in at 8:00 PM EDT, that’s Midnight Universal Time for this interesting program. Technical problems resulted in the reading of The War Of the Worlds sounding different than the rest of the cast.

-Note: MPR neither endorses nor disputes the opinions and viewpoints expressed by any of our guests.
