Iron Rain and Silly Walks

Posted on: Thu 12 Mar 2020

ESO’s Very Large Telescope has been used to observe an extreme planet where it likely rains iron. With temperatures rising above 2400 degrees Celsius.

Also for the 50th anniversary of Monty Python’s ministry of Silly Walks skit, it has been calculated that the walk is exactly 6.7 times more silly than a regular walk.

Ben Lewis from Australia’s Science Channel joined Radio Adelaide’s Tom Mann and Zoe Kounadis to discuss these stories and other news from the world of science.
