View Full Version : Episode 62: Uranus

2007-Nov-12, 05:49 AM
This week, we're on to the next planet in the solar system. We don't know a whole lot about this blue gas planet, but today we'll cover some of the neat stuff we do know, including it's faint rings, sideways axis of rotation and its rocky core - a first in the gas planets we've encountered so far in our tour.

As of now, it's not appearing in the feed (feed://feeds.feedburner.com/astronomycast) or iTunes. :confused:

EDIT: It is now. I guess maybe there's a short delay before the feed is updated?

Enjoyed the show... but does anyone else think its a boring planet? lol....

So are we going straight to Neptune next week or are we doing the moons?

I admit, they're not that interesting, but hey Miranda's kinda cool.

We're going straight to Neptune.

could you say something about the whole Comet Holmes thing in the next show?

As a non-native English speaker, living on a continent (Europe) where everybody uses (non-native) English
as the only way to communicate with their neighbours,
I am always amused about the continuous apologies concerning 'correct' pronounciation on your show.

Be assured that on this side of the world, NOBODY pronounces ANYTHING correctly :lol:

That's good to know. So I guess I don't need to apologize for my Canadian accent either. ;-) Phil always makes fun of the way I say "out" and "about".

2007-Nov-16, 06:17 PM
But... you're Canadian. That's how Canadians speak. Or so I always assumed... :)

We're going straight to Neptune.

I guess that means Triton won't be getting a moon show either.

Well more time for Kuiper belt, Scattered disk, and Oort cloud show I guess.

Can't end the series without Voyagers... they're leaving the system no?

2007-Nov-19, 12:13 PM
True, I guess then can go with the Voyagers and the Termination shock, Heliosheath, Heliopause, Bow shock and finally the Interstellar medium.

Of course after all it's only a short interstellar trip to Alpha Centauri, the Magellanic Clouds and Andromeda. :shifty:

Short of course being a relative term.
