After talking with a NASA astronaut, we at Due South wanted to learn more about research that’s happening here on Earth.

Rachel Smith, an astrophysicist at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, studies star and planet formation.

We talk with her about that, and space out on some of humankind’s biggest questions, like – are we alone in the universe?
