“Math is your friend! You should love math!” proclaims Rob Thacker in this intelligent and engaging interview with Daryn Caister. Thacker wrote about ALMA – the planet’s most powerful telescope – and the importance of the night sky for the latest issue of A\J, which is all about Night.  

Thacker grew up having dinnertime conversations with his family about the intricacies of the night sky, and now likes to share his passion for night-time and beyond with the rest of the world. Did you know that only two per cent of Canadian tax revenue is spent on space research? Learn about why that research is so important in this edition of the A\J Podcast.
