Philae Mignon!

Josh, Addie and Tracy welcome Jürgen Blum from the University of Braunschweig to discuss the exciting landing of the ESA Philae probe on the comet 67/P Churyomov-Gerasimenko. Philae, carried to the comet by the ESA probe Rosetta, is the first spacecraft to land on a comet. In addition to revealing the secrets of the universe, it will also tell us whether the comet depiction in the classic film “Deep Impact” was merely great or the greatest ever.

    Just dicovered your podcasts on libsyn .
    Great content BUT the libsyn web page image is a real problem. The image is displayed at a truely MASSIVE size making the page almost unreadable and thereby giving a very poor impression to the potential reader.
    Hope this feedback is useful and that you can make the image display in a more user friendly manner.

      Thanks for the feedback! I had noticed the image size problem on libsyn recently. I’ll get that fixed ASAP.
