Whenever I watch a space launch of a rocket or incredible Lunar – or in this week’s case – Martian landing – I get all teary and emotional. Our human capacity for technological and scientific wonder and achievement is so amazing. Inspired by the Perseverance Rover landing on Mars, today’s show is all about science. Science is the study of the nature and behavior of natural things and the knowledge that we obtain about them. There’s Ecology, Oceanography, Geology, Astronomy, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Botany and so many more different fields of science. Maybe some of you are budding scientists and might study our world, or other worlds one day. We will chat with a real-life scientist and kindle musician Marsha Goodman-Wood, who also gives us today’s Artist SongBite.
