A jolly romp around covid and tasers!
We look back at the astronomy and space exploration highlights of 2020:
- Phosphine in Venus atmosphere
- The saga of SpaceX
- Chang’e 5 at the Moon
- Comets Atlas & Neowise
- 3 missions to Mars
The lows of 2020 in astronomy and space exploration:
- Cancellation of SPICA
- The loss of the Arecibo radio telescope
We look forward to the anticipated events of 2021:
- Luna 25, Chandrayaan-3 & Artemis 1 to the Moon
- 3 Mars arrivals
- Vera C Rubin telescope & Maybe JWST
And we run through our own predictions for next year before signing off with our customary end-of-year outtakes.
