Art and science are combined this week in a project at the High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program, or HAARP facility. Built for military research involving radio transmissions through the ionosphere, the facility in Gakona, has broadened its scope beyond traditional science. KUAC’s Dan Bross reports.

Dan has been in public radio news in Alaska since 1993. He’s worked as a reporter, newscaster and talk show host at stations in McGrath, Valdez and Fairbanks. Dan’s experience includes coverage of a wide range of topics, from wolf control to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and dog mushing.
