Humanities Kansas turns back the clock to 1972 with a new podcast series to commemorate HK's 50th anniversary in 2022. The podcast, a first for HK, connects national events from 1972 to local events in Kansas.
Outer space was on the minds of Kansans in 1972. Kansas astronaut Ron Evans journeyed to the moon on the Apollo 17 mission. Western Kansas was being considered for the new Space Shuttle launch site, and some locals did not like that idea. And the state was a hotbed of UFO sightings, including notable encounters in Dighton and Delphos.
