Fifty years ago, a mammoth effort by hundreds of thousands of Americans culminated in Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon. The Brainwaves podcast takes a look back at how they did it with author Charles Fishman. And we talk with a CU Boulder geologist who is set to analyze moon rocks that have been tucked away for more than 40 years.
