“Planets” (March 29, 2014)


In this episode of A Science Story, we steal a space rocket from Richard Branson and offer a virtual radio tour of The Planets.

Did you know that it may be snowing dry ice on Venus? Or that Uranus is basically rotating on its back? From Mercury to Neptune*, we’ve got the whole solar system covered! 

* with a possible cameo from a former, disgraced member of the planetary club.
