If you thought the movie Contact was all sci-fi fantasy, think again! In this episode, Julia and Maryalice talk to a top notch science journalist about the real-life pioneer that was the inspiration for Jodie Foster's character in the 1997 film. Sarah Scoles has a new book all about that inspiring astronomer, Jill Tarter, and the challenges she faced as she broke new ground in her field, much of which is still relevant today. Plus, Sarah tells us what to expect as we get closer to the much-anticipated solar eclipse!
