Did you watch BBC 4 yesterday?
« on: 16/11/2009 11:48:33 »
I was going to post this before the event, but lost my broadband connection yesterday.

Yesterday BBC 4 ran a series of programmes on Mars and the 'Orion' project.

The 'Horizon' programme can be found on the BBC iplayer here http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00p1crx/Mars_A_Horizon_Guide/
And Sir Patrick Moore's 'Sky at Night' Mars special is here http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b00p1crx/Mars_A_Horizon_Guide/
The 'Mars by A bomb' programme on the Orion project, sadly is not on the iplayer.

I watched parts of it as I had previously seen it.

Quite apart from anything else, I am astounded at good ol' Sir Patrick. He must be nearly as old as the universe himself...... (No offence intended) and still he keeps going!

Re the Orion project: this article mentions one of the less obvious problems with the idea.  It also contains a link to the 'memoir' in question (10MB PDF)
