Tuesday 7th August 2012

My usual partner-in-crime, Radio DJ, Jon Royal, was unable to make this month's show, so instead of Uckfield FM's Royal's Astronomer, I became King's Astronomer!
Feel free to listen here (click here) to our edited broadcast where we shared NASA's Curiosity rover's historic landing on Mars and the upcoming Perseid Meteor Shower ... and where I mistakenly described Curiosity as being about the size of bus when what I meant to say was that the rover itself is around the size of a small mini-bus ... or a Mini car, if you prefer. 

Keep looking up!
