It's Your Universe

missing image

The universe is science's greatest poem. It’s dizzyingly complex and impossibly beautiful. We know both a great deal about it and nothing at all. “It’s Your Universe” will explain it and illuminate it, taking listeners on a weekly walk through some corner of the cosmos—the solar system, a galaxy, black holes, red giants, the ice moons on which life may dwell, oven-like planets on which nothing can live, the mysterious Oort cloud that surrounds our solar system. And none of those extraordinary places and things even includes the infinite number of other universes that may exist beyond our own. Jeffrey Kluger, co-author of the best-seller Apollo 13, and a science and space journalist for more than 30 years, will be both host and trail guide for It’s Your Universe’s journeys, beginning with a tour of our own solar system. There is science in the universe, yes, but there is romance and lyricism and head-spinning wonder too. It’s Your Universe will reveal it.

Luca

Apollo 1

Whether ship or mere simulator, the Apollo had so far impressed most people at NASA as a slapdash machine. It was temperamental, error-prone, and impossible to work with for more than a little while before something broke down. TIME’s Jeffrey Kluger ta...

Gemini 8
