Science Fiction, Science Fact, Science Fun
with Guest of Honour:
Satellite 6 is the latest in a series of science fiction conventions with a strong science element that have been running in Glasgow since 2007. Each event has a different theme: this time we celebrate the planet Venus. Come and join us for a fun-filled weekend of talks, panel discussions, workshops and games.
Nights are fair drawing in
It's 20:02 so a Happy Autumnal Equinox to all the Satellite family.
Just think - only one equinox to go until Satellite 6!

Mars - never boring!
The wee Curiosity rover continues with big results on the Satellite 3 Planet-of-Honour. This time, it has
discovered the presence of boron on Mars' surface. Boron and borates are key components in making RNA - one of the building blocks of life.
Go Curiosity (but don't run over any cats!)

Life begins at 40...
Tomorrow is the 40th anniversary of the launch of Voyager 1, the first man-made object to leave the Solar System and, of course, the Satellite 4 Spaceship-of-Honour. Currently it is still speaking to us from a distance of 13.0 million miles making it NASA's longest-lived and farthest mission. NASA is holding a special celebratory event at 17:30 UK time tomorrow which you can watch live on NASA TV.
