Jesuit Astronomy Expert on The Colbert Report


One of the guests on "The Colbert Report" last night was  Jesuit Brother Guy Consolmagno, S.J., Ph.D.,  a respected planetary scientist and expert on meteorites who works at the Vatican Observatory in Rome and Tucson.  Brother Consolmagno  is the author of numerous books on the intersection of science and faith, including Brother Astronomer and God's Mechanics. Political humorist and comedian Stephen Colbert interviewed Brother Consolmagno on the satirical show and asked why the Vatican accepts the possibility of alien life.
