I hope you can join us on what will be the last official episode of Space Nuts for this calendar year. And my name is Andrew Dunkley, of course, the host, and joining me will be Professor Fred Watson, astronomer at large. Fred, what are we going to do to finish off this 2022? Well, we've got some great stories, actually. It looks as though there's a mystery being solved that has hung around for decades regarding the satellite galaxies of the Milky Way, which we see from down here in the Southern Hemisphere, the large and small Magellanic Cloud, among many others of them. That looks as though it's been solved by scientists, including somebody I know quite well actually from the University of Durham. Also, we're going to talk about something I know nothing about, the possibility that dark matter might turn out to be dark photons. All in Space Nuts 336. Astronomy, Science, Space, and Stuff.
