EAT02 – Astronomy on Cunard’s Queen Mary 2

In episode EAT02 of KPO’s European Astronomy Tour, we are in the midst of our Atlantic Crossing, on board Cunard’s Queen Mary II, the greatest ocean liner in the world. We’re spending 9 days aboard this historic vessel, and during that time we will be treated to Cunard’s famous astronomy enrichment programs.

In this episode, we also interview Dr. David Mannion, Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, author, and speaker, and chat with him about his experience in speaking on cruises and astronomy outreach in general.
