Space, the final frontier, a place of endless possibility, wonder, and opportunity. And a whole lot of weird stuff that challenges your ideas of what you think you knew about the universe you inhabit. So, to start off the year, we’re taking you on a quick tour through the solar system and beyond to talk about some odd observations and theories you might not have heard before, from Saturn’s disappearing — yes, disappearing — rings, to a really good and slightly disturbing reason we haven’t heard from any intelligent aliens yet. Along the way, we’ll also debate what makes a planet a planet, and send some shout outs to some relevant TV shows and fun videos.
