Get your daily fix of astronomy

Skymania.com is delighted to be sponsoring today’s episode of the 365 Days of Astronomy Podcast – a brilliant project that is helping celebrate the International Year of Astronomy.

365 days of astronomy logoAn international production, the daily podcast will cover all aspects of astronomy and space science. Each lasts five to 10 minutes and there will be a different one every day this year.

The first of the episodes that Skymania.com is sponsoring is recorded by US space journalist Nancy Atkinson.

Nancy talks with Stephen Edberg from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, who is a System Scientist for the Space Interferometry Mission (also known as SIM Lite) discussing how this future space telescope could help answer our questions about extrasolar planets and dark matter.

The podcast episodes will be written, recorded and produced by people around the world. Each day will have a specific topic or theme based on a daily calendar of astronomical events, themes and ideas created by the IYA. So it is a great way to get your daily fix of astronomy – like having a radio station permanently tuned in to the heavens!
