Techstination feature for Thursday, January 26, 2023

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        When it comes to getting kids excited about science, tech and math…we are all in…and a new book from National Geographic Kids titled One Thousand Facts About Space is bound to accomplish that and more.   The author is Dean Regas, astronomer at the Cincinnati Observatory…who has laid out the book to allow you flip to any page and find something interesting.   Like what?   Like the likelihood of diamonds in the clouds above Jupiter..

“It’s theorized but likely that that’s what’s happening because Jupiter is all gases.  So it’s hydrogen and a little bit of helium and what’s going on in the atmosphere is this various pressure is happening.  But it’s not like you can go up there with a bag and just scoop up a bunch of diamonds to take home with you.  It’s not quite as easy as that.”

The book again….1000 Facts About Space from National Geographic Kids.
