Special Edition – New Horizons Arrives!

This week all the astronomy that Laura and I discuss is based around the arrival of New Horizons at Pluto. Laura also fills us in on the controversy over melatonin. One correction from this week’s show: the moon is around 250000 miles away from Earth, not 180000 as stated in the podcast.
