Wyatt Earp

History for the most part has depicted Wyatt Earp, the hero of the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, Arizona as a legendary lawman, a beacon of justice in the American West. But in, “Wyatt Earp: A Vigilante Life,” author Andrew C. Isenberg paints a much more complex portrait of Earp, who seemed to alternate between wearing a badge and impulsive law-breaking – as a thief, brothel bouncer, gambler and con man. Original air date 08/22/13

Nathan Sterner talks about a space mission to the Sun with project scientist Nicky Fox.

Life on Earth depends on the Sun, that giant furnace nearly 93 million miles away that anchors our planet's orbit. Its light makes it possible for plants to grow, and for animals to eat them.
