Last week, the UK’s National Astronomy Meeting took place at the University of Central Lancashire. The Royal Astronomical Society issued a multitude of press releases to talk about the work being presented. My favourites were:
Did William Herschel discover the rings of Uranus in the 18th century?
Astronomers map out the dark matter in nine galaxies
Nano-nauts! These are millimetre-sized space probes that can be blown around Mars’s surface like dust.
