The Astronomy Show 10.05.17
The Astronomy Show this week will be looking at the X-37B space plane mission. It seems to have been a 2 year mission clouded in secrecy, the conspiracy theories are going into overdrive. However the official line is that the X-37B was used to test new systems for the future. With that in mind I thought it would be a good idea to look at future missions to explore the solar system.
The A-Z of constellations has reached Crater the Cup and the Messier Marathon is now at M 27 the Dumbell nebula. The solar system ramble has reached Pluto and the dwarf planets. There will be the latest astronomical news including the Martian New Year celebrations that happened on May 5th, or maybe you missed that one!! The astronomical scrapbook will be looking at astronomical events in history this week, plus the round up of events in astronomical societies in the north.
The Astronomy Show every Wednesday between 3.00 pm and 5.00 pm on Drystone Radio 103.5 FM listen on line at www.drystoneradio.com or hear the programme on the Drystone Radio podcast.
