SSL's BATSE Experiment Science Highlighted on NPR's StarDate
October 17, 1996
This week (October 14), the science from BATSE was the subject of a three-day series on NPR's StarDate Program, produced by the McDonald Observatory in Texas. The first program talked about the ever changing gamma-ray sky, and how it appears so very different from the sky we're used to seeing with our eyes. On the second day, the enigmatic gamma-ray bursts were presented, with a possible explanation for their origins provided in the third program.
With permission of StarDate and its producer Damond Beddingfield, the following audio versions (au format and wav format) and scripts of Stardate are provided. The audio files are 1MByte each and run approximately 2 minutes.
