As Hurricane Harvey was dissipating over the southeast United States, four more major hurricanes were barreling across the Atlantic Ocean

John and Lynn's first guest is NASA's Dr. Compton Tucker. Since the fall of 1997, NASA satellites have continuously and globally observed all plant life at the surface of the land and ocean. Dr. Tucker will join us to talk about how this view of life from space is furthering knowledge of our home planet and the search for life on other worlds.  There were 17 named storms during the 2017 hurricane season which will go on record as the most expensive hurricane season in US History. John and Lynn visit with  Dr. Scott Braun from NASA. They will discuss what we learned about hurricanes this past season and what we can expect in the future.
