Hampshire College Astronomer Salman Hameed joins us to talk about the James Webb Space Telescope's deep dive into the TRAPPIST-1 system. Is there a planet there that could host life as we know it? Plus, we hear about the unveiling of the Artemis I crew.

And Hannah Moushabeck stops by to discuss her new book, "Homeland: My Father Dreams of Palestine," with a couple special guests: her father, Michel, and her uncle, Gabriel. All three of these Moushabecks have a lifelong dedication to books, bookstores and publishing. We'll hear about those connections and how they link up to western Massachusetts.
