To celebrate today’s rare Solar Eclipse, this episode is dedicated to the exploration of the heavens and the invention that opened the night sky to everyone, the telescope. And you have to go through Aristotle, Nicolaus Copernicus, Johannes Kepler and Galileo Galilei, just to name a few, to get to it. Learn about Halley’s Comet, the Hubble Telescope, the black hole in the center of our galaxy, what a Jansky noise is and say goodbye to Albort’s favorite space mission, Cassini-Huygens. Scope this out!
