Colleges and universities face a new challenge: fewer potential students. They’ve been told for years to brace for a decline in prospective students as the number of high school grads was expected to decline. WOSU talked with some industry experts to find out how they’ve prepared to compete for scholars.
Space: The Final Frontier
I grew up during the height of NASA’s moon program. My older brother had many space adventures with ‘Major Matt Mason’. I thought Major Matt’s space crawler was pretty cool! So I’m excited we’re able to bring you a great series from the BBC that tells the story of the moon race and more.
Tuesday night WOSU TV will begin airing a four part series on NASA. THE SPACE AGE: NASA’S STORY starts at the beginning, the Cold War, and follows the story all the way through the shuttle program. You’ll see stunningly restored footage with revealing, and insightful interviews with the people who were there – the astronauts, their family members and journalists, thank you Walter Cronkite. THE SPACE AGE: NASA’S STORY has been called a complete history of mankind’s journey into space. I think now with the end of the shuttle program in sight, it’s good to take a look back at where it all started.
Whether you’re a big fan of space, or just enjoy looking up at the beauty of the moon on a clear summer night, I hope you’ll be able to join us at for this definitive look at one of America’s greatest achievement’s.
Space Age: NASA’s Story airs Tuesday nights at 9pm on WOSU TV and Wednesday’s at 9pm on WOSU PLUS.
