The Astronomy Show 02.12.19
On the Astronomy Show today I will be looking at news that British scientists will be exploring parts of Antarctica looking for iron meteorites which are rare on the Earth but even more difficult to find at the south pole. I will be looking at why this is the case, and how they might find them if they are there.
The regular features include the weekly round up of what we can see in the night sky as well as looking more closely at some of the constellations that we can see at the moment. The latest news stories include Jupiter's Great Red Spot isn't dying and Voyager 2 is passing through the area of space where the solar wind and cosmic rays do battle together. The astronomical scrapbook looks at events that happened this week in history including the discovery of Himalia the sixth largest moon of Jupiter in 1904. All this plus the round up of news from the astronomical societies of the north.
