The last week has seen some stunning displays of ignorance by various politicians (to nobody’s surprise) and I have personally struggled with an astonishing lack of knowledge in certain areas in my favourite class.

This is mainly because Sagittarius B2 is made up of highly-pure alcohol, several cubic light years of it… ESO/APEX & MSX/IPAC/NASA And here you can learn more about Sagitt…
 
Today’s episode of Minutes at the Edge is a very happy one. I talk about the New Horizon mission to Pluto, the discoveries made and the geek fest the people at NASA had naming the geological structures they found on Pluto and Charon. Please enjoy this shiny podcast! And here are some links for further reading (all highly recommended): Charon’s Terr…
 
There is a NASA study out, which proposes using airships and cloud cities, habitats in the upper atmosphere of Venus, to explore the planet. The whole idea is far less freaky than it sounds, believe me! Here’s my podcast introducing the whole thing: And you can find out more about everything (and please check out the graphics) at spectrum.ieee.org.…
