Welcome to the Dark Side of the Moon

Why go back to the moon? Well, other than the fact that it is just really cool - NASA is looking for the best place to land and build the earth’s first off-world colony. Man isn’t scheduled to set foot on our nearest space neighbor until 2020 but NASA calls this rocket “America’s first step in a lasting return to the moon.”







2:00– 2:30

Will the American Muscle Car Drive off into the Sunset?

Not exactly—as much as big, noisy, V-8 powered American muscle cars like the Mustang and Camaro embody the gas guzzling, self-indulgent style of Detroit’s bygone glory years, they still remain extremely popular.  In fact, GM, Ford & Chrysler have all just released retooled versions of their classic muscle car.  Can the fuel efficient priorities of today be meshed with the tire-screeching high performance of the past?

The Rock

Alcatraz – the rock – the name alone says it all. The forbidding prison in the cold waters off  San Francisco has a grim and gripping history – and a new life as a national park. Dave Ward, author of the new book “Alcatraz – The Gangster Years” joins us to discuss the infamous prison.
