The astroquarks get Down with it as we welcome Dr. Audrey Martin back as the Down astroquark for a discussion of the strange auroral phenomenon known as STEVE (for real), an odd gamma ray burst that may be the result of an unusual stellar merger, and updates on the successful Artemis 1 mission to the Moon.
Orion, Son of Poseidon and Euryale, maybe
Bring Orion on your walkabout the galaxy and you'll have nothing to fear. In addition to fighting off any aliens, lions, scorpions or ancient Greek kings who may attack. Orion the Hunter is known for his charmingly boastful conversation and movie star good looks, and he already has his place in the Milky Way of his own constellation. Orion's dog Sirius is available for walkabouts at no extra charge. Sporting a bejeweled dagger and his recognizable belt and immortalized in the eponymous song by Jethro Tull, let Orion add a little flair to your next voyage. Orion, history in your hand (Albion Swords).
