Midmorning: NWA's emergence and black holes

Posted at 7:56 AM on May 17, 2007 by Bill Wareham

Northwest Airlines reaches the final stages of its plan to resolve its bankruptcy this week. But what is the legacy for the airlines' unions? And does the turbulence in airline industry affect customer service? At 9 a.m., Kerri Miller discusses those questions with guests John Remington, professor of industrial relations at the University of Minnesota's Carlson School of Business; Doug Baird, a bankruptcy expert and law professor at the University of Chicago; and Scott McCartney, who writes the Middle Seat column for the Wall Street Journal.

At 10 a.m., top astrophysicist Neil Tyson joins Kerri to talk about what happens when massive stars collapse, asteroids and other mysteries of the universe. Tyson is the author of Death by Black Hole and director of the Hayden Planetarium.
