    • Society & Culture

Our guest for Episode 2 is Dr. Linda Godwin. Selected by NASA as an astronaut candidate in June 1985, Dr. Godwin became an astronaut in July 1986. A veteran of four space flights, Dr. Godwin has logged over 38 days in space, including over 10 EVA hours in two spacewalks. She retired from NASA in 2010 and is now a Professor Emeritus in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Missouri. Our conversation explores humankind's fascination with space, the future of space exploration, and how the Humanities and STEM are more closely linked than one might think.
