Science Weekly podcast: Science fiction, and the age of astronomy

We visit a science fiction exhibition at The British Library, while astronomer and author Stuart Clark joins us in the studio to discuss a different kind of science fiction: his novel The Sky’s Dark Labyrinth, which explores the early days of astronomy through the lives of Johannes Kepler and Galileo.

We also have our usual dose of the week’s news stories including the discovery of some very lonely planets, and Ian Sample’s exclusive interview with Stephen Hawking.
