  1. The illustration is a segment of “An Astronaut’s Advice”, a quote from Canadian astronaut (and soon to be ISS Commander) Chris Hadfield; illustrated by Gavin Aung Than for his website “Zen Pencils”.

    Zen Pencils is VERY science-friendly, and anyone who listens to Astronomy.FM would likely really enjoy signing up for the Zen Pencils weekly e-mail.

      I noticed that about an hour before the show started. Gavin Aung Than is clearly very talented.
