KTRU Tuesdays: Alex Dessler’s Space Predictions

In May of 1977, Information Services and KTRU began making and airing a show called “To the Point.” The 15 minute segment featured an interviewer and a Rice professor discussing a hot topic. Doc C (Dr. Gilbert Cuthbertson) talked about the 65th Texas Legislature, and Dr. C.H. Ward tackled air pollution.

In today’s audio clip, Dr. Alex Dessler goes one step further, focusing on energy and space colonies. He had a lot of faith in NASA in June of 1977
