Walkabout the Galaxy
International Space Station; wormhole; moons
Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
An instrument on the International Space Station that can help us understand more about antimatter is getting an upgrade, and we review that old sci-fi staple: the wormhole. Somehow we manage to do this without talking about Star Trek (mostly), but we have nerd news and space updates together with trivia and a new discovery about some of the many moons in our solar system.
From 486958 Arrokoth to 1803 Zwicky, heavenly bodies has something to suit everyone's taste. For plus-sized models, we have Jupiter with its trademark red spot and dramatic belts and zones and Saturn with its flashy rings, certain to turn heads on the celestial runway. If you’re looking for a rockier lineup, check out our broad selection of over 1 million asteroids. Going for a cool vibe, we have an ever-increasing cast of Kuiper Belt objects including Pluto and the Plutinos. Heavenly Bodies is proud to accompany you on your walkabout the galaxy. Heavenly Bodies: Share the Fantasy (Chanel 5, 1979).
