Episode 191: Bill Hartmann, senior science emeritus at the Tucson-based Planetary Science Institute

Bill Hartmann, senior science emeritus at the Tucson-based Planetary Science Institute, assisted legendary University of Arizona astronomer Gerard Kuiper (KY-per) in creating the Rectified Lunar Atlas. Their detailed map of the moon's visible surface proved valuable to NASA's Apollo program that landed the first men on the moon 50 years ago this week.
