Ep. 319: The Zodiac

Although the Zodiac is best known for astrology nonsense, it has a purpose in astronomy too. The constellations of the Zodiac define the plane of the ecliptic: the region where the Sun, Moon and planets appear to travel through the sky. What are the constellations of the Zodiac, and how do astronomers use them as waypoints?

    So… episode 310? Is it going to be one of those quirky episode anomalies we see in long-running shows?

    Decades from now, the multiubernet will be aglow with posts declaring that episode 310 was buried as a government plot. Others will claim that UFOs sucked up the Episode 310 bandwidth. More rational minds will sigh and say it must have been broadcast, but is now inexplicably lost, and then spend their lives searching archived FTP archives in a search to find it.

    You may have this legacy to explain to your grandchildren!

    But seriously – is Ep310 still being edited? Would you like me to edit it, if you send the raw audio files?
