Cows Driving Down the Motorway
Chris is in Arizona and Rob is Oxford (but he can see into Chicago). Chris’ obsession with Curiosity continues. Rob wonders why Brian May has a badger on his arm at the Olympics. There’s debris on Mars, rings around Saturn and a distinct lack of oblateness on the Sun. [We apologise for the audio quality of some parts of this episode - there was unexpected interference on Rob’s microphone.]
