Andrew: Hello, Andrew Dunkley here from the Space Nuts podcast. And joining me every week is Professor Fred Watson astronomer at large. What's coming up Fred on episode 312.
Fred: Great stuff. Andrew, we're going to Mars again this week, to talk about a proposed new method of exploring the atmosphere of Mars, which I think is very, very exciting…and, and I hope to see it happening down the track.
And we're gonna celebrate the 10th anniversary of the discovery of wait for it, The Higgs Boson, not quite astronomy, but particle physics is very much a part of what we do when we're studying the universe. So exciting stuff. This.
Andrew: Particle physics. So I thought it was a snail, but anyway we'll get on that. We'll also be answering audience questions about stars passing close by our solar system. I didn't know that was a thing. Paul wants to, make things easier on paper when it comes to drawing constellations and Talek from Ireland wants to talk about the danger of asteroids, near earth objects, whatever you want to call them.
