Episode CXXXII

Tonight, MPR will feature an interview with Dr. Ramses Ramirez, a research associate at the Carl Sagan Institute of Cornell University. In a wide ranging and fascinating interview, Dr. Ramirez, a planetary scientist and astrobiologist, discussed habitable zones (where Earth resides) around stars, including our sun; the possibility of discovering life on Mars, either present or past; as well as life on exo-solar planets (planets orbiting other stars).
In addition we will continue reading Mary Shelly’s groundbreaking science fiction novel,Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus.
