Gravity, Plutomania and the Day Comedy Dies: Astro Morning Tea with ICRAR

00:07:16

  Last updated November 9, 2017 at 3:19 pm

Join ICRAR Astrophysicist Dr Luke Davies and Cosmos Consultant Gregory Rowbotham for the death of comedy in a morning tea full of space (and other) news with a spin.

This week: Did Greg survive the sentient ice cream or are we employing the powers of sophisticated CGI and robotics to simulate a Greg? The death of comedy (from dark horse comedian Luke), the situation gets serious as we discuss gravity, sprites (but not the drink), and plutomania - what is it and what does it have to do with Pluto the dwarf planet? Don't forget if you have a question you want us to answer, just put it in the comments below and we'll get on it in a future episode.

Astro Morning Tea with ICRAR - every fortnight.

Additional production by Pete Wheeler and Kirsten Gottschalk.
