In 2008, NASA commissioned storyteller Jay O'Callahan to write the NASA story to celebrate the agency's 50th anniversary. The awe-inspiring result is Forged in the Stars - a spell binding account that "captures the soaring human spirit of the NASA endeavors." (quote excerpt from NASA JPL scientist Michael Eastwood.)
Jay has performed Forged in the Stars at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Johnson Space Center, Ames Research Center, MIT, Harvard University, Science Teller Conference, the International Astronomical Congress and has appeared on National Public Radio's Living on Earth.
