Behind the scenes at the Isaac Newton Telescope, on La Palma, Canary Islands. Filmed and narrated by Brady Haran. With thanks to Rafael Barrena who was operating the telescope. Extra comments from Professor Mike Merrifeld, University of Nottingham. Our thanks to the Isaac Newton Group of telescopes for hosting us at La Palma and supplying many of the images. http://www.ing.iac.es/ (Special thanks to Javier Mendez at the ING) Extra images supplied by Caren Park (www.parkgallery.org), Iain Macaulay and David Brander from URN Science Show.

Observes and interprets celestial phenomena and relates research to basic scientific knowledge or to practical problems, such as navigation: Studies celestial phenomena by means of optical, radio, or other telescopes, equipped with such devices as cameras, spectrometers, radiometers, photometers, and micrometers, which may either be on ground or carried above atmosphere with balloons, rockets, satellites, or space probes. Interprets information obtained in terms of basic physical laws. Determines sizes, shapes, brightness, spectra, and motions, and computes positions of sun, moon, planets, stars, nebulae, and galaxies. Calculates orbits of various celestial bodies. Determines exact time by celestial observations, and conducts research into relationships between time and space. Develops mathematical tables giving positions of sun, moon, planets, and stars at given times for use by air and sea navigators. Conducts research on statistical theory of motions of celestial bodies. Analyzes wave lengths of radiation from celestial bodies, as observed in all ranges of spectrum. Studies history, structure, extent, and evolution of stars, stellar systems, and universe. May design new and improved optical, mechanical, and electronics instruments for astronomical research. May specialize in either observational or theoretical aspects of stellar astronomy, stellar astrophysics, interstellar medium, galactic structure, extragalactic astronomy, or cosmology.
We're watching the star Wasp-33 as a giant, fast-moving planet moves across its stellar disc. The extrasolar transit is being recorded by Liam Hardy using a telescope called the pt5m.

The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has discovered an extrasolar planet, for the first time using direct visible-light imaging. The strange world is far-flung from its parent star, is surrounded by a colossal belt of gas and dust, and may even have rings more impressive than Saturn's. --- Subscribe to Science & Reason: • http://www.YouTube.com/Best0fScience • http://www.YouTube.com/ScienceMagazine • http://www.YouTube.com/ScienceTV • http://www.YouTube.com/FFreeThinker --- Credit: - ESA/Hubble (M.

One time fellow traveller welcome to the ministry of tspace time and the church of great stdy , I am the very reverend Ordo mundi humble servant of universe, maintainer of the laws of physic and student of the on ething greater than I am. great googly moogly I like to begin this weeks saying of stuff with a reading from the book of Newton ..change be upon him...a great sage of the astronomers who gave us the lwas of motion so that we may be free from ignorance and live not as morons....And Isacc for that was also his name did set down upon the firmamnet the first law of motion and This law is known as the law of inertia. "A body continues to maintain its state of rest or of uniform motion unless acted upon by an external unbalanced force.. aint it so ...praise the Laws, let me hear ya say praise the laws..can I get a we know ..we know... yes we do join me now and fill your lungs with a mix of gases from our atmosphere for our hymn today ..Morons are hoping, Morons are hoping, God is the answer to all the questions and mysteries too astronmers study and then know the answers you can all join us and know them too Theer really is no god , at least not a person you are not special hes not watching you join us if you want to know the answers join us and be an astronomer too Mine is the starlight, mine is the knowing Born of the one light, Universe made Praise with elation, astronomers who have studied universe and become sage Yes morons are hoping , and hope is desperate and will not feed you nor save you from ignorance nor form in your brain the knowing of anything . But morons ar ehappy ,,happy happy happyy ...and ignorance for many peole is bliss and even if it isnt , some mumbo jumbo vodoo nutta will come along and tell them ..You could be happy , you and you r petty , cosmically insignificant life, could be filled with happines and you personally could experiance a deep fullfullment in a spiritual way that only I and my voodoo bretheren can tell you all about .. just mumble the mumbo after me and you selfish personal happiness needs will be taken care of by god , who even tho he created universe and is currently manifesting his will over infinite time and all things , is personnalluy interested din your salvation, and your happness yes he is ,cos its all about you ..you wonderfully special person you let me hear you say vodooo..voodoo...its voodoo , taking you away from the road , stealling you from the path of study and making you a navel gazing twat, more concerned with ya own smugg self satifaction than doing or knowing anything usefull .. Astronomers may be happy or may not be happy , and your happiness or lack of it may influence universe in many ways ..but I can asure you it will not change the sacred facts , not alter the laws of physics and no amount of happiness will yield or prevent a unified theory of all energy and mass we see , from being discovered..So let us not dwell in the selfish domain of personal fullfillment , there is nothing to saveyou from but ignornce and nobody is listening to yo prayer s but you , so get up of ya knees and come study...remeber many of our revered forebears , galileo , copernicus, kepler, gave up their lives , there comforts their safety and yea even their happiness , to know more about universe than was know already...Ahem ...let us know OH Universe that is not happy or sad at our coming or going tho we may be as we know we will come and go OH Universe that is not fullfilled by our motions or actions tho we may think upon them and guage them for ourselves OH Universe that is not concerned with our well being , or survival tho we may take stock of them to continue our study OH Universe that cares not for our good deeds or bad so we may be without like or dislike for them also OH Universe that is not happy or sad at our coming or going Reveal the facts , and the laws to us the astronomers so we may deal with the morons and ignorant savages bringing them with us on the etrnal road of infinite study Spacetime Well thanks for listening , dont forget to vist our website theastronomers.org and help us on our sacred quest to rid the world of ignorance, spread the facts and buy the planet ..remember this is your one time , this is the time of choice , this is the middle of time , here we are and here is where its at..great googly moogly..
