Ian is someone very familiar to Astrophiz listeners. For the last 12 months he has presented his ‘What’s Up Doc’ segment where he tells us what to look for in the night sky, astrophotography tips and in ‘Ian’s Tangent’ he gives us a deeper understanding of astronomical phenomena. Today he will do all that, but first we’re going to find out more about this erstwhile producer of the fantastic ‘Astroblog’.
In the News: SKA update, the Voyager Missions, Non-Optical Telescopes and what to look forward to in our next couple of episodes.
