We speak with two science writers about today’s solar eclipse from the path of totality. Is this a dramatic natural phenomenon Americans really needed to see? David Baron is a veteran science journalist who watched today’s solar eclipse from a ski resort in Jackson, Wyoming… in the path of totality… for two minutes and twenty seconds. Ian O’Neill is an astronaut and science writer based in Los Angeles.
