In The Moment ... April 27, 2017 Show 081 Hour 1

We begin the hour with a look at Astronomy Day at the University of South Dakota. Joel Sander, associate physics professor at USD, joins Dr. Vuk Mandic in the studio to talk about the LIGO collaboration's discovery of gravitational waves and a significant discovery proving some of Einstein’s theory of relativity concepts and other theories about black holes.

SDPB’s Nate Wek joins us for a conversation about The Shift, this time with a visit to the town of Avon for a look at how open enrollment has impacted the district.

Bill Anderson is the author of “The Selected Letters of Laura Ingalls Wilder” and other scholarship regarding the beloved writer. We revisit our 2016 conversation with Anderson to honor the correspondence of a lifelong writer and chronicler of prairie life.
