On The Move
This Thanksgiving, ABC News Radio presents “On The Move,” a three-hour special. Alex Stone hosts this in-depth look at the latest in transportation technology and the many ways we move around Planet Earth … and beyond. We’ll meet the scientists and engineers developing a spacecraft that will orbit an asteroid in deep space, gathering valuable, potentially life-saving information. We’ll get a close-up look at the next big thing in aviation, learn about automakers’ plans to go all-electric, and take a virtual-reality vacation. We’ll go one-on-one with the woman breaking land speed records on Antarctic ice with a modified car, strap on a jet pack and even go underground through public transportation tunnels. Buckle up!

Saturday marks twenty years since the 9/11 terror attacks. ABC's Aaron Katersky takes us back to that day with a riveting account of how that day unfolded, told through the stories of first responders, survivors and others. The last survivor, pulled from the rubble of the World Trade Center 27 hours after the attack, provides her first-hand account of that day. Finally, we revisit the young women and their then-infants left behind when their husbands and fathers were killed that day and how these widows have helped their children remember the fathers they've never met.

We’ll look at jobs that have gotten a lot harder and ones that we didn’t even know were jobs. Cheri and the team of ABC correspondents will examine the urgent need for cybersecurity experts, talk to the brave men and women fighting wildfires in the West and even explore how some are earning a substantial living with TikTok.
