    Space Nuts Episode 325 with Professor Fred Watson & Andrew Dunkley
    This is episode 325 of Space Nuts podcast, and we've got a lot to talk about. In fact, the audience is going to do the talking because we're dedicating the whole show to questions. So we've got questions about Artemis 1, dark matter, flickering stars, Spacetime holes, gravity and terraforming Venus. Which will be interesting because it's a hot bed that place a very, very, nasty place if you set foot on it, which I don't advise. That's all to come on this edition of Space Nuts. Enjoy!

    Andrew: Hello again. Andrew Dunkley here from the Space Nuts podcast. We've got the next episode. coming up and to tell us what's going to be on episode 322, Astronomer at Large. Fred Watson.
    Fred: Hot off the press stories, as always. We've got a new mineral that has been discovered on the Moon by Chinese scientists which sounds really interesting. And we've got some less than good news, I guess, to report on two of the space missions that are uppermost in our mind. Artemis One and Blue Origin.
    Andrew: Okay we'll look into those issues, and we will get questions from Rebecca in Geelong, who is asking about with the Moon being hit by pieces of rock on a regular basis and what that might do to future Moon bases and Moon missions. And Mikey from Illinois wants to know how we know galaxies are interacting when there are so many in the pictures coming back from James Web. That's a good question.
