Segment 1: Making greeting cards more diverse.

Segment 2: Why Kansas and Missouri astronomers are fighting to save dark skies.

With 80% of the globe now under light-polluted skies, it's getting harder to see the stars, and that's just scratching the surface of the light-pollution problem. Efforts are getting underway to measure light pollution in Missouri, and to preserve the dark skies we still have throughout the region.
