How Star Trek Changed Everything

The destination for the 1960s Apollo missions was the Moon, but the premiere of Star Trek in 1966 got the nation thinking about possibilities  beyond our Solar System. What about other galaxies, alien life, faster-than-light travel?

Glenn Burns, WSB-TV’s chief meteorologist, will discuss how a unique blend of science fact and science fiction inspires generations of astronomers. 

Burns has been with WSB-TV since 1981 and has won numerous awards, including  Associated Press Weathercaster of the Year.
