Mar 02, 2016, 08:32 AM

Hi everyone...Andrew here.

In this episode of Space Nuts, Fred and I talk about the very large space rock that disintegrated off the coast of Brazil in early February, and was hardly reported on...yet it was one of the largest ever.

Plus we take a look at the recent discovery and confirmation of Gravitational waves...and the side bet it generated. Looks like Astronomers are only human after all...:)
