A Conversation with Freeman Dyson

Freeman_dyson_close_up_isdc2018_nss-small_small There’s so much more to Freeman Dyson than the Dyson Sphere.  The mathematician, scientist and author is one of the greatest and most original minds of our era.  He has much to say to Mat Kaplan about the future of space exploration and humanity in this week’s show.  NASA has announced two exciting papers based on discoveries by Curiosity, the Mars Science Laboratory Rover.  Emily Lakdawalla has the straight story.  And we’ve got one more signed copy of “Chasing New Horizons” to give away in this week’s new space trivia contest. 

Shadowlands

From L.A. Theatre Works | Part of the L.A. Theatre Works series | 01:57:58

The author of "The Chronicles of Narnia" found his "perfect love" late in life

Shadowlands-artwork_small While C.S. Lewis earned great renown for his writings on love in a spiritual context, he lived most of his life as a bachelor, until meeting the American poet Joy Gresham in 1952. And it’s through this enduring friendship that Lewis learns about the power of human love to truly connect him with the divine.
Shadowlands by William Nicholson stars Martin Jarvis as C.S. Lewis and Harriet Harris as Joy Gresham. With Arthur Hanket, Nicholas Hormann, Christopher Neame, Kenneth Schmidt, and  W. Morgan Sheppard. Directed by Jenny Sullivan and recorded live in performance in May 2001.
