Biggest stories of 2014 on NPR's Science Friday

What better way to recover from the your Christmas or Hanukkah celebrations and prep for 2015 than to reflect on the past year’s biggest science stories? On December 26, at 2 p.m. Eastern time, tune to your National Public Radio station for Science Friday. In the episode, I join host Ira Flatow, Scientific American’s Mariette Dichristina, CNET’s Bridget Carey, and National Geographic contributor Brian Switek to talk about the most notable news from all areas of science in 2014. It was fun to record, although I fear my attempt at a joke during my introduction — a poor try of fitting into my new state of residence — might have fallen flat. We reflect on everything from the first comet landing to Ebola, and from the dusty universe to dinosaurs.

If your local public radio station doesn’t carry the program, you can listen in at Science Friday’s website. And if you want to read more about these discoveries, make sure to pick up Astronomy’s January 2015 issue for my article “Top 10 space stories of 2014.” But hurry, it’s only on newsstands two more weeks!
