This past month, two Kid Scoop News feature reporters, Brianna Martinez and Sydney Hopkins, interviewed author Wallace H. Tucker, author of Chandra's Cosmos: Dark Matter, Black Holes, and Other Wonders Revealed by NASA's Premier X-Ray Observatory, via Skype.  After questions were answered and good-byes were said, Sydney and Brianna assisted Education Coordinator Jeanette Hopkins with the development of their first radio reporter script.  A very special thank you to Mark Munger and his staff for giving the reporters this special opportunity and for airing the book reviews.  Our feature reporters look forward to more interviews and more creative ways of sharing the interview responses.
