Water is central to the state’s identity and economy, and a symbol of how wealth and ingenuity have tamed nature ..."As we continue through a fourth year of extreme drought conditions, you'll find all of our reporting on the related issues (and that of NPR and other member stations) in this centralized place.
  • 00000176-4e34-d3bc-a977-4f7c3a790000Blue Dot host Dave Schlom is regarded as one of the leading expert journalists when it comes to the Apollo Program. In 2017, he decided to start doing special programs to commemorate each of the Apollo missions that flew from 1968-72. Here you will find links to every program related to the Apollo Program. Hope you enjoy delving into the history of America’s “Golden Age of Space Exploration.”“Dave Schlom’s passion for the Apollo Program is so strong it’s infectious! As host of the North State Public Radio series Blue Dot Dave has taken the occasion near each Apollo mission’s 50th anniversary to ‘tell its story’ by interviewing the people who were involved hands-on in the program, as well as those with a unique perspective of what happened. He interviews astronauts and their kids, Mission Control flight directors and flight controllers, and their kids. And Dave also will bring in a space journalist or a historian who has chronicled events of the Apollo era. Now Dave has assembled all of his Apollo-era Blue Dot episodes on a single website where fans, students, and researchers can go to listen to the stories of the Apollo missions being told in the words of people who lived them or covered them? Dave intends to include every Apollo mission in this series, and I will be satisfied only when he has completed the story of the final mission, Apollo 17, in 2022!” - Gerry Griffin, Former NASA Apollo Flight Director & Former Director, NASA Johnson Space Center
