About This Episode

What better time to talk about the Sun than during the summer? Once worshipped as a God, we now know the Sun is one of many similar stars in a relatively quiet region of the galaxy. Neil and his co-host comedian Chuck Nice are joined by Judith Lean, solar scientist at the Naval Research Laboratory, and Steve Keil, director of the National Solar Observatory, for an illuminating discussion of the ball of plasma around which our whole world revolves. From solar storms to calendars to climate change, learn about the many ways the Sun is the light of our lives.
