It's Your Universe

Panoply

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.

Mir

It can be oddly peaceful inside a dying spacecraft. That was not something Michael Foale ever suspected—and with good reason. When you’re inside a spacecraft that’s dying, you’re likely to die right along with it. But now that Foale was in that very situation, after six weeks aboard Russia’s Mir space station, he was surprised at the sense of serenity that came over him. TIME’s Jeffrey Kluger takes you through the events that make it one of the most harrowing space missions of all time.

Space has a lot of ways to kill you. It’s a beautiful place to contemplate and a thrilling place to visit, but for all its appeal, it’s got murder in its heart. There is almost no way you can imagine to die that space won’t be perfectly happy to deliver, save one: you can’t drown there. That, ultimately, was what made it such a surprise in 2013 when Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano nearly drowned to death while orbiting 250 miles above the Earth. TIME’s Jeffrey Kluger takes you through...

Pete Conrad had no business trying to fly to the moon on a rainy morning in November of 1969.

Gus Grissom tried not to give much thought to the fact that the rocket he was riding to space was built to kill people. But the terrible V-2 would become the beautiful Redstone, and American Astronauts - manifestly the good guys - would ride them into space.

Apollo 1

8/3/2017
More
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 takes you through the Apollo 1 mission and the events that make it one of the most harrowing space missions of all time

Neil Armstrong didn’t believe in omens, but he got a nasty one anyway the moment he climbed into his Gemini 8 spacecraft on the morning of March 16, 1966. If Armstrong had believed in omens, he might have been better prepared for what the rest of the day held for him.
