The Road Less Travelled, Episode 1: Joining Faith and Science in a Journey Through the Stars

In this new Better Satellite World podcast series, SSPI’s Lou Zacharilla speaks with people whose lives and work inspire us because they walk “the road less travelled,” the one leading us to a wider view of space, satellites and our quest for the dwelling of light we call “The Truth.” This series will feature people you may have heard about but may not have yet had a chance to actually hear speak.

In the first episode of The Road Less Travelled, Lou speaks with Brother Guy Consolmagno, SJ, Director of the Vatican Observatory and co-author of multiple books, including Would You Baptize an Extraterrestrial? and Turn Left at Orion. Brother Guy holds degrees from MIT, Harvard University and the University of Arizona and has been a member of the Catholic Church’s Jesuit Order since 1989. He has authored hundreds of scientific publications in addition to his books. Brother Guy even has his own asteroid – 4597 Consolmagno – and is a recipient of the Carl Sagan Medal from the American Astronomical Society.

Brother Guy tells us in the podcast: “It’s pondering that’s really the work of a scientist. And it’s after the pondering that you write your papers. It’s after the pondering that you go to meetings. It’s after the pondering that you ask for more grant money. But if you don’t recognize and absorb what the universe has thrown at you and ponder it in your heart, then you’re not doing science.”
