Linda talks with Tyler Nordgren, a graduate
student of astronomy
at Cornell University. They talks about how
Carl Sagan, who died
today at the age of 62, inspired him to study
astronomy. Nordgren
used to rush home from school to watch Sagan's
PBS series
"Cosmos" on television, and eventually decided
to study
interacting galaxies as a result. (3:30)

Both segments require RealPlayer to listen to.
