if you haven't been watching the wonders of the solar system programme on bbc two then you seriously need to get involved. its presented by the adorable professor brian cox who just bloody loves science so much and comes out with brilliant lines like "it may just be a blip on a screen but to me its beautiful". i just knew him as the guy who did the science bits on this morning sometimes but apparently he was in that band d:ream who did that "things can only get better song" as well as being a mega figure in the world of physics. i was genuinely a little bit gutted when i wiki-ed him and found out he was married.
if you wanna skip the sciencey bits then jump to 2.30 mins in.
its on iplayer, check it out.
