Mars, chile peppers, and Tucson's Dark Skies

NPR's Science Friday broadcast from the UA in Tucson yesterday. They covered what planetary scientists know about Mars and what remains to be discovered. Guests included Peter Smith and Alfred McEwan from the UA Lunar & Planetary Laboratory and William Hartmann from the Planetary Science Institute in Tucson.

In the second segment, they covered both chile peppers and the reasons southern Arizona is close to heaven for astronomers. Host Ira Flatow interviewed Adam Block from the Mt. Lemmon SkyCenter and Douglas Isbell from Kitt Peak.
