Space Nuts Ep 12 - Success and failure

Apr 12, 2016, 06:48 AM

Hi everyone...Andrew here with the show notes:

In this episode we take a look at the huge success of the Blue Origin project and the disappearance of the Japanese Hitomi satellite project. What's happened to it? We report on what's known and the speculation.

Do you know what a Protoplanetary Disc is? (I could barely say it...) According to Wikipedia : 'A protoplanetary disk is a rotating circumstellar disk of dense gas and dust surrounding a young newly formed star, a T Tauri star, or Herbig Ae/Be star.' We discuss...and Fred clarifies.

And are scientists really planning to defend earth from aliens with some sort of laser shield? Maybe...maybe not. Fred gives his opinion on this news...
