49min 37sec


How often do you look up at the moon and think "people walked there?" It's not just a a technical, scientific achievement, but a testament to human imagination. Astrophysicist Professor Martin Barstow explains the achievements of Hubble in its 30years and how we are looking further into our Universe and into the past and our search for life. Poet and author Dom Conlon talks about the connection of art and space and how it inspired his book of poetry, This Rock That Rock. Join us for a voyage of beginnings and endings and imagination. To add to the childlike wonder of staring up at the stars, there are some questions from the children of Greenfield Primary School.

There is also an education edition of this episode available here with some follow up questions suitable for children.
