What does our galaxy smell like? Believe it or not, that question is a serious one. William H. Waller, an astrophysicist who has taught and studied at the Harvard-Smithsonian Institute, the Goddard Space Center and Tufts University, joined Brian Standing on Monday, August 19, to chat about the radial-armed galaxy we call home.
Waller currently teaches science at Rockport Massachussetts High School – lucky students – and is the author of The Milky Way: An Insider’s Guide, available from Princeton University Press.
