Bad Astronomy

Who better to invite to CERN, than the internet’s most popular astronomy blogger, Dr. Phil Plait, the Bad Astronomer?

Phil and Brian originally met in 2005 when Brian interviewed Phil for a BBC programme about the Deep Impact mission. Since then, they’ve stayed in touch regularly. Phil was even interviewed about science in science fiction for ‘Sunshine’, the film on which Brian worked as the science consultant.

Phil has written loads about his trip to CERN already (Parts 1, 2, 3, 4) and made a video

    OK, I must be dim. I don’t do itunes, I rely on direct download for my podcasts, and I can’t find any link on this page to one…

    I’ve listened to the earlier podcasts, but now I can’t find mp3 links on those pages, either.

    Great podcast, video and postings by Phil! I volunteer to DO ANYTHING just for the chance to see LHC close up! The single most awesome undertaking we hydrogen atoms have attempted so far!
