COVER STORY: Hazardous to your health? The politics of COVID-19
Almost since news of the coronavirus pandemic first broke, partisanship became the lens through which many Americans viewed the dangers of the COVID-19 outbreak – taking hand-washing, masks and social distancing seriously, or not. Correspondent Martha Teichner talks with health officials who have been threatened for speaking out about the true hazards of the coronavirus, and examines how the federal government’s public health response has been marred by the fingerprints of politics and the dynamics of an election calendar.

Eisenhower, who led the Allies to victory in World War II and led the United States through the early years of the Cold War. Correspondent Rita Braver talks with Ike’s granddaughter, Susan Eisenhower, and with the memorial’s architect, Frank Gehry, about how best to honor the life and consequential legacy of the general and commander in chief, whose reputation has only grown with the passage of time.

ASTRONOMY: A golden age of astrophotography
New, cheaper technology has made it easier than ever for amateur photographers to take stunning, out-of-this-world images of the night sky. But as correspondent Serena Altschul reports, our skies are becoming marred by light pollution and, increasingly, orbiting satellites. Still, for photographers, stargazers and astronomers alike, dark sky reserves (where outdoor lighting is regulated) offer some of the best views of the heavens above, and a chance to look up in wonder.

Stranded at home in quarantine this spring, Keith Urban had a tough time getting used to life as a traveling musician with nowhere to go. But as he told correspondent Tracy Smith, he successfully pivoted to playing music during a pandemic, from holding a benefit concert for frontline workers at a Nashville drive-in, to finishing his new album, “The Speed of Now, Part 1,” in which he recognizes the value of – for once – slowing down.
