Br. Guy Consolmagno featured on NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday

Br. Guy Consolmagno, S.J., Director of the Vatican Observatory, recently took NPR senior European correspondent, Sylvia Poggioli on a guided tour of the Vatican Observatory’s headquarters in Castel Gandolfo, Italy.

Along the way, the two discuss the history of the Observatory, a few fun facts—did you know the Observatory’s been visited by Obi-Wan Kenobi?—and how COVID-19 has impacted the faith-versus-science culture wars.

Thank you to NPR for the exciting opportunity to share more about the Vatican Observatory!
