This play was on UK BBC Radio 4 yesterday;
"Star Struck by Katharine Way
Sarah has got the job of her dreams. Working with Cal, an Astronomy Professor at a remote observatory in New Zealand, watching the destruction of a planet by a black hole. But then the Professor registers a message from the dying planet. Can it really be genuine?"
Only two parts in the piece. They arrive at the isolated telescope, which has been financed by two universities. There is no one there, but they are not surprised, this is normal.
The female then says that she is tired and jet-lagged and has found a bedroom that is north-facing, "so the sun won't get in."
I didn't bother to listen any more.
Massive telescope that needed two Unis to buy, and is only used casually?
And an astronomer who expect a north facing room in the Southern Hemisphere to have less sunlight than others?
Clearly the author did no research, so the rest of the plot will be as nonsensical.
