Listening In: JFK on Vietnam (November 4, 1963)
President Kennedy records a personal memo about the death of South Vietnam President Ngo Dinh Diem, only to be interrupted by his son, John F.

Dr. Tom Abel - "Cosmic Dawn: The First Star in the Universe"
"Cosmic Dawn: The First Star in the Universe" Dr. Tom Abel - Stanford University What was the first thing in the Universe? A black hole or a star? How did it form? Even our biggest and best telescopes cannot tell us. Direct calculation with supercomputers, however, can.
