Science Friday: Planetary Exploration / McNeil's Nebula
This site provides two radio broadcasts: an update on several space missions and a discussion of McNeil's Nebula. The first 33-minute broadcast discusses space missions exploring the planets in our solar system, such as Cassini in its orbit around Saturn, the twin Mars rovers, and Messenger, soon to lift off for the planet Mercury. The second, a 15-minute clip, discusses how a newborn star is shining some light on McNeil's Nebula and on the origin of our solar system.
