Space Nuts Episode 262 with Professor Fred Watson & Andrew Dunkley
●A quick discussion about the successful launch of Jeff Bezos into space…
●Astronomers have obtained detailed images of a plasma jet from a supermassive black hole. Fred has the details.
●And there are mountains on neutron stars...but not as you may think.
●Our listener questions …both about telescopes but vastly different. First up is Mark who wants to buy a telescope for his son (we think that may just be a cover story) and Tyler in Canada wants to know why there isn’t a telescope on Vancouver Island. Fred has the answers.
●If, like Mark, you’re interested in buying a Telescope, check out our new sponsor, Orion Telescopes and Binoculars, and help support the show. Try their really useful product selection wizard. Fun to just have a play around with. Please use our link:

Bob Saget's Here For You

BOB SAGET’S HERE FOR YOU is a podcast that is like no other— For one, this podcast has guests who are friends of Bob’s, or just really interesting people who many of you know and love. Secondly, this podcast is unique because it goes inside Bob Saget’s mind, and then quickly filters out through his mouth. Bob has a way of calming people he has conversations with as well as being entertaining and often informative. Bob talks with his guests with genuine empathy and humor, while reaching his unusually diverse audience that he talks to as a friend, Bob is the dad with great advice, the irreverent funny guy who’s always there when you need a laugh, and the free-associative Bob who goes off on crazy tangents then returns to the subject at hand, as serious or as comedic as it may be, to wrap up each episode in a way only Bob can do. Because he really does believe, “He’s here for you."
