This year Halloween and Election Day are just as frightening for many in Idaho.  For the more mild mannered there are two events taking place at the Herrett Center on the campus of the College of Southern Idaho.  

Because microbes on the dead could land on a distant planet and bring life from earth to the heavens.

Both events are tied in with the two eventful days.

Chris Andersen from the Center is outlining those events and also planning for next year's eclipse.  He joined us on Top Story with details.  We also talked Star Trek and a macabre story about shooting corpses into space.  Why?  Because microbes on the dead could land on a distant planet and bring life from earth to the heavens.
