How To Hunt Down A Meteor
Here is what's in this program of The Story:
When a meteor exploded over Russia a few weeks ago, the meteor hunters packed their cold weather gear and headed for the cold and snow to search out fragments of the explosion. Dick speaks with Mike Hankey about how he got his start hunting down these fragments in rural Amish farmland. He has designed a software program used by the American Meteor Society.
Also in this program: Dick speaks with Olympic wrestler Clarissa Chun who is joining forces to lobby the International Olympic Committee to keep wrestling in Olympic competition; and writer John Irving, a life-long wrestler, speaks from his exercise room.
