I don't personally have a problem with this bit we went to see Dara O'Briain last night and Its a huge niggle of his, basically..


Astronomy nom nom nom Brian Cox is so tasty (can't disagree there :point:)

And Astrology - log ....poo (not what he said but you get the picture ;) )



He was very funny by the way :happybounce:

Dara is very funny isn't he :lol:

I think astrology is more to do with the aligning of the sun, the moon and the stars, then predicting what could happen in someone's life.

Astronomy is more scientific, it's studying the stars, planets etc.

I too like Dara. :yes:
He just annoys me a bit at how he keeps on saying "Aaaah" after each sentence, but his humour makes up for that indiscretion IMHO.

I love Dara O Briain (sp.. can't be assed to look it up) He's hysterical.

Youtube is your friend if you want to see him in action.

What is the difference between and astronaut and a cosmonaut? (again sp) Does Skywatcher know?

As far as I know, "astronaut" is the Western term, and "cosmonaut" is used for Russian space travellers.
