In space, no one can hear you scream. Which is lucky, as this weeks Double Tap Canada kicks off with the unique singing voices of Steven, Shaun & Tim as they pay tribute to the 50th anniversary of the moon landing.
Steven tells us about a project from NASA that not only is amazing from the aspects of technology and exploring the universe, but also could be of interest if you’re visually impaired as the data it is collecting can be heard in an audio form. Here’s a small excerpt from the NASA TES web page.
The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) is the next step in the search for planets outside of our solar system, including those that could support life.
TESS will survey 200,000 of the brightest stars near the sun to search for transiting exoplanets. TESS launched on April 18, 2018, aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket.
We hear from listeners Beth and Gordon, who tell us about their Aira experiences, and how a lanyard and the Be My Eyes app can be a viable alternative to Aira
After a brief distraction by Strawberry Yoghurt soup, it’s back to listener feedback, including more conference talk, forgettable hosts, an angry Tim and Double Taps very own poet, Billy, ends the show with another great piece.
