What kind of things could you learn from a hand puppet? Professor Dan Petory is here to save the day, and his topic of the hour is UFOs. With the background accompaniment of the Soybean Sisters, this ten minute short answers a variety of important questions including why do UFOs fly in a zig zag pattern, what do aliens look like, and why constellations appear the way they do?
The memory works in mysterious ways.
