Another month another Jodcast

Once again the great beast that is the Jodcast has finally come together despite some last minute issues. To start off the February show we have a nice bit of history with Sir Bernard Lovell talking about the origins of the MKI telescope at Jodrell Bank (later to be named the Lovell Telescope). He is in his 90s now and I'm really impressed by how on the ball he is. Following that we have a chat to Chris Davis who is on the UK team for NASA's STEREO mission to observe the Sun in three dimensions. Apart from it being recently launched and therefore quite exciting, talking about the Sun is also a good way to start (I know it is February!) International Heliophysical Year. There is also an interview about ultraviolet astronomy from the Moon. If that isn't enough, there are the usual Ask an Astronomer, news, astronomy podcast round-up and night sky segments too. Having got all that together, I'm pretty shattered. I hope someone enjoys it.
