The Planets

Post by grassy1 » Sun Aug 04, 2019 10:23 pm

I’m no Scientist,but watching this program presented by Brian Cox,sure is captivating.

Don’t expect to rehash much of what I saw,but I reckon we can thank Saturn for pulling Jupiter away from us and later Jupiter itself,for intercepting several Asteroids with it’s gravitational pull not so long ago,making sure none of them reached 🌏.

Phew!Add to that,all the fantastic imagery captured by Voyager 1 and 2 and Hubble.

Great stuff Brian!

Sounds interesting grassy. What station was it on? Wouldn't mind having a gander.

Channel 2 Ben.

But the series finished last night.There should be ways on Aunty’s Website to look it up,but whether you can see the 1st four episodes, I’m not sure.

Did a funny turn in Monty Python’s farewell,when he gave us an intergalactic lecture,only for Stephen Hawking to mockingly now him down to great cheers and applause.

All in good spirits,I’m sure. :lol:
