For nearly 30 years, Science Friday has been your trusted companion for science news. We were there for the earliest missions to Mars, the rise of the internet, the birth of human genome sequencing, the new wave of climate change movements, and much more. Now, we’re looking back on the decades of discovery recorded in Science Friday’s archival vaults.

Science Friday Rewind explores these fascinating moments in science under a new light. As we dig up these conversations, we’ll reflect on past stories and offer today’s perspectives. We’ll reconnect with guests and invite new voices into the discussion. We’ll look back on some of our favorite archive shows, too. Check out the stories we’ve revisited so far!
