Space Nuts Episode 316 with Professor Fred Watson & Andrew Dunkley
Andrew: Hello there. My name is Andrew Dunkley the host of the Space Nuts podcast, where every week we talk astronomy and space science. And coming up soon will be episode 316. And joining me will be Professor Fred Watson. Astronomer at large. Hi, Fred. What's on the next episode.
Fred: We're going to talk about the shortest day on record. There you are. That's an enticing one. Then we've got an all-questions episode, so we're going to answer questions ranging from the motion of the moon throughout the year to what it would be like to be in orbit around a giant star.
Andrew: Okay. Sounds like fun. The shortest day. June 29. You'd feel pretty ripped off if it was your birthday, I imagine.
Fred: I think so.
Andrew: Maybe not as ripped off as you think you might be.
Fred: Sure.
