Now, we remember a day that will forever live in infamy in the United States: December 7th, 1941. On that day, Japanese planes attacked Pearl Harbor, the American naval base near Honolulu, Hawaii. The United States declared war on Japan the next day, catapulting the country into World War II. This summer, as part of an oral history project, students at Washington College in Chestertown spoke with those who experienced World War II first-hand. One of them was, Tom Noble, who lived in Hawaii where his dad was stationed in 1941.

When NASA’s “New Horizons” spacecraft launched in January 2006, its mission was to explore the planet Pluto. But Pluto is more than 3 billion miles from Earth and while the spacecraft was making the trip, the International Astronomical Union stripped the celestial body of its status. So when “New Horizons” makes it there, it’ll actually be exploring the Dwarf Planet Pluto. The spacecraft has spent much of the journey in sleep mode and on Saturday, NASA is set to wake it up. Hal Weaver is a project scientist on the mission, which is run from The Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel. He joins Nathan to talk about the mission.

The Time The BSO Said Farewell To The Lyric

The May 27, 1982 performance of the Baltimore Symphony was the Symphony's last show at the Lyric. The orchestra said goodbye to the venue one musician at a time: in the middle of Haydn's Symphony 45 in F Sharp Minor, each musician left the stage individually. The first violinist remained to finish the piece. When the piece concluded, the first violinist walked off the stage, leaving Maestro Commissiona alone. With no musicians left to lead, Commissiona walked stage left and flicked the light switch to "off." The auditorium went dark. It was a poignant goodbye to the Lyric after 66 years.
