THE ASTEROID HUNTER A Scientist's Journey to the Dawn of Our Solar System

by | Read by Sir Brian May, Dante Lauretta

Contemporary Culture • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Dr. Dante Lauretta, principal investigator for NASA's OSIRIS-REx asteroid study and extraction mission, invites listeners to delve deeper into the project's early development and ultimate success. Lauretta creates a companionable experience as he conversationally discusses the trajectories of his personal and professional spheres. These include a sky-gazing youth in the Arizona desert and a life-changing experience with SETI (the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence project) during his undergraduate years at the University of Arizona. Now he's at the forefront of an exciting frontier in planetary science. The author's infectious passion for the mission's outcome will engage listeners through its highs and lows. Sir Brian May, astrophysicist and member of the band Queen, delivers brief but memorable performances of reflective interludes that include ethereal music.
