TOSP Episode 17: January 16th 2012

[Original post on the Sciblogs The Official Sciblogs Podcast site]

Greetings, listeners!

This week, aimee was away in Melbourne at the inagural AdaCamp barcamp.  So Elf brought in his good friend Haritina Mogosanu, who works with KiwiSpace and World Space Week, to co-host with him.

They talked about the number of planets in our galaxy, molecular time travel, calculating what’s in the universe, ‘getting’ science (or not), KiwiMars 2012, and aimee reports back from AdaCamp.
