MONEY MATTERS with Christopher Hensley

After graduating in 2012, Bobby Hoyt started his career as a high school band director in Texas. In addition to a shiny new diploma, he also came out of college with $40,000 in student loan debt. He still planned on buying a new car, a house he couldn’t really afford, and wanted to do all of the things that other Millennials his age were doing. Everyone has debt right?

He paid off $40,000 in student loans in less than 2 years on a teachers salary. Seriously!

Using interviews, NASA oral histories, and recently declassified material, Into the Black pieces together the dramatic untold story of the Columbia mission and the brave people who dedicated themselves to help the United States succeed in the age of space exploration. On April 12, 1981, NASA’s Space Shuttle Columbia blasted off from Cape Canaveral. It was the most advanced, state-of-the-art flying machine ever built, challenging the minds and imagination of America’s top engineers and pilots. Columbia was the world’s first real spaceship: a winged rocket plane, the size of an airliner, and capable of flying to space and back before preparing to fly again.
