Hosted by Allen Versfeld.
In this science explainy bit episode, we answer the pressing question of why planets always seem to orbit in the same plane. Why are their motions aligned like that? And as a bonus, we answer a listener question: Why is the Moon visible in the day time when so many adults will confidently tell you that it's a night-time object?
Brief bio of the podcaster: Allen is an amateur astronomer, an IT professional, a podcaster, a father of five beautiful kids and a barely competent chess player. He is also the director of the Citizen Science Section of the Astronomical Society of South Africa, where he promotes the uptake of Citizen Science among South African amateur astronomers.
