I’m home for Thanksgiving, and at my mom’s suggestion, I just listened to storyteller Jay O’Callahan perform part of his work about NASA, “Forged in the Stars,” on the “Living on Earth” program for NPR. If you’re at all interested in space exploration, NASA, or just hearing a good story, it is well worth listening to this performance, which you can do by clicking the download link on this web page.
NPR will air the full performance of “Forged in the Stars” during the last week of December. O’Callahan has performed the piece at JPL and JSC, and received standing ovations for it. Here’s to him for doing a little bit to capture the public interest once again.
