USM's LaSala and Ziffer answer space questions on 'Maine Calling'

USM physicists Julie Ziffer and Jerry LaSala marked the 60th anniversary of NASA recently on the Maine Public’s talk show “Maine Calling.”

The two USM faculty members joined John Logsdon, editor of “The Penguin Book of Outer Space Exploration: NASA and the Incredible Story of Human Spaceflight.”

Their conversation looked at the future of NASA, and recent news including the search for Planet X, the aborted mission to the International Space Station, and the Hubble and Chandra glitches.
