Episode 20: Astronaut Victor Glover on Communion (in space), creation, discipleship, and doubt


Capt. Victor Glover, a longtime member of the Church of Christ, will pilot the Artemis 2 mission to the moon in November 2024, but it will not be his first trip to space. Capt. Glover spent 168 days in space, including 167 days aboard the International Space Station in 2020 and 2021. Few human beings know what it's like to hold to the beliefs and practices of Christianity anywhere other than Earth. In this interview, Capt. Glover shares how his faith influences his work as an astronaut (and scientist) and how his work as an astronaut (and scientist) influences his life as a Christian.
