SpaceWatch.Global is pleased to present the 29th episode in our podcast series The Space Cafe Podcast: Brother Guy Consolmagno, The Pope’s Astronomer

Episode 029 features a special guest Brother Guy Consolmagno.

Brother Guy Consolmagno begins his conversation in this podcast by referring to a long and strange tale. And that’s what it has become. One of the most fascinating paths we’ve followed on this podcast so far. This is the story of the transformation of a budding astronomer with very secular interests into the Pope’s chief astronomer. If you want to know what the Catholic Church thinks about New-Space and why Brother Guy doesn’t think God lives in heaven, we highly recommend this podcast.
