In this month's show we talk to Gerry Gilmore about the Gaia spacecraft and find out why he says the solar system will be oscillating like a jelly. We find out about the recently launched New Horizons mission to Pluto, pose all your difficult questions to Tim O'Brien and find out what you can see in the night sky during February*. We also get a round up of all the latest news from the planets to the closing of the London planetarium.
