Earth has a hot new neighbour – and it’s an astronomer’s dream. A rocky planet discovered in the Virgo constellation could change how we look for life in the universe.

Brad Tucker joined us on the show to reveal the name of earth’s new neighbour and to announce the new dedicated bushfire satellite that will hopefully be launched next year!

As well, Brad revealed that SpaceX (the first trip around the Moon) is now offering free public seats to anyone who wants to enter!

Find out our neighbour’s new name, how we can detect bushfires from space and how to get on board the flight to the moon, below:
