Planets created by Josh Simpson '72

What do alumnus Josh Simpson ’72; his wife, retired astronaut Cady Coleman; his son Jamey; a bunch of girl scouts; a nine-year-old boy named Jack Davis, who applied to NASA to be the guardian of the galaxy; and a full CNN crew all have in common? They are all together in Blackwell, Missouri, where CNN will be streaming Coleman during the Totality, as she explains the eclipse from her unique astronaut’s perspective.

The broadcast will be live, on cnn.com at 1 pm (ET). Simpson is the creator of glass globe “megaplanets,” some of which can be viewed in the College’s Taylor Science Center.
