Stardome Astronomer Dr Grant Christie joins Graeme with the week’s astronomical news.

Dueling Bands in the Night.

Why does it look like we have two Milky Ways?

It was worth millions but the Google X prize goes unclaimed after nobody made the cut-off date. 

Will 4G be available on the moon?...to watch Youtube maybe?

Have we finally detected dark matter by “observing” the birth of the first stars?

Grant says;

This is the first direct evidence of them forming.

Also, nobody has ever observed a supernova in the process of exploding... until now.
