Krista's unedited conversation with Brother Guy Consolmagno and Father George Coyne, two astronomers who work at the Vatican Observatory. She spoke with him using a broadcast-quality telephone connection on February 24, 2010. Krista was in the studios of American Public Media in St. Paul, Minnesota, and they were in the studios of KUAZ in Tucson, Arizona. This interview is included in our program "Asteroids, Stars, and the Love of God" and originally podcast in April 2010.
Four Jesuits in history have had asteroids named after them. Our guests are the two living astronomers with that distinction. Brother Guy Consolmagno and Father George Coyne study the composition of meteorites and the life and death of stars. They share their observations of life, faith, friendship, and the universe from their seats in the Vatican Observatory.
