Issues & Ideas: Under 40 focus, aerospace history and saving whales

923.jpg

On this week’s episode of Issues & Ideas: we hear from three different San Luis Obispo groups focused on helping those under the age of 40 get more civically engaged. SLOu40, the SLO Scoop and YPNG are all working to provide community engagement for the under-40 set. 

We learn about a project by UC Santa Barbara scientists to create a high-tech sound system aimed at preventing deadly collisions between whales and ships. And we talk with the former chief historian at NASA to understand the importance of documenting the country’s aerospace program.
