Living on the Air in Saint Louis

It had been a long day. As reported in last month's APS News, Nancy Ellen Abrams and Joel Primack (left) delivered a successful APS-sponsored public lecture at the Saint Louis Science Center, based on their book The View from the Center of the Universe. But after a late dinner, Abrams and Primack had more work to do–an appearance on late-night radio at KMOX, chatting with host Jon Grayson (right). Who knows how many of their listeners drifted off to sleep dreaming of galaxies far, far away? Fortunately for Abrams and Primack, once the interview was over, their hotel was close, close by across the street.
