Lynn Moroney, Chickasaw Storyteller
Through "Science Story" Lynn Mornoey explains how and why stories have been used to teach people about the world, and the place of story in astronomy and other space sciences. Long before we went into space, it was the stories, that helped us wonder about the universe and even today they invite us to wonder and spark our curiosity. Space isn't just for scientists, rather the arts help us "know" the world, and when we blend the two, we can have a richer understanding of the universe and ourselves.
