“Above the King of the Sky, there is Another Wandering Star”

Did Galileo discover Neptune centuries before its official identification? This is one of many fascinating questions explored in a delightful and informative BBC radio program that broadcast this week on the planet’s “first birthday”. It’s very much worth your time if you are an astronomy buff or just someone who enjoys high quality science journalism. Good on you, Tracey Logan.
