A travel guide for your Milky Way bucket list

Two authors use science fiction to explore the potential for vacationing in the stars.

Jupiter's sixty-four moons, a sift through the red plains of Mars or glide through Jupiter's gaseous atmosphere: in the future imagined by Olivia Koski and Jana Grcevic, the solar system is within our grasp and our vacation plans.

On this episode of River to River, host Ben Kieffer talks to the pair about their 2017 book "Vacation Guide to the Solar System." The two packed real science and a curiosity about the university into a beautifully illustrated travel guide.

This episode was first produced on June 15, 2017.
