Solar Superstorms

Wrapping up work on “Solar Superstorms”. Tom Lucas, the director, is in town today. We’ll be previewing the rough cut at Staerkel Planetarium tonight. In a couple weeks, the celebrity narrator will be recording the script (Can I announce who it is yet?? You’re gonna love it)! I’m so excited!
