This week on the Space Nerds podcast:
SPACE NEWS: (Starts at 2:00) A new spacecraft is heading towards the center of our solar system to study the sun closer than ever before. Dubbed the Solar Orbiter, this probe will observe the sun’s polar regions which have never been seen directly. Doug, Jayne and Andi join us to discuss this article from The Verge: https://www.theverge.com/2020/2/8/21120233/solar-orbiter-spacecraft-nasa-esa-mission-sun-poles
STAR WARS CLUB: (Starts at 14:40) Our Star Wars Club reassembles to discuss season 1 of the new Disney+ show, The Mandalorian. We gush over Baby Yoda, look under Din Djarin’s helmet and debate whether or not Boba Fett made a secret appearance. Now that Star Wars has produced a Western, we discuss what other genres we’d like to see incorporated into the Star Wars universe. We also hypothesize about what will appear in season 2, and get sidetracked by Cowboys and Aliens. Featuring Be Russell, Jennie Krantz, Douglas Gale and Jesse Mercury.
