          If you forget about 2004, "The Transit of Venus" happens every 105 years. We spent a little time with a couple very young space cadets who know just how important it could be to see this. They probably won't get another chance.

            We faced some pretty cloudy conditions around here for the "Transit of Venus" but we did manage to find a couple hardcore fans that aren't going to let this once in a lifetime opportunity pass them by. This is the 4pm version told through our very own, "Solar Ambassador".

                  Courtesy: http://www.fistchat.com - Hosted and Produced by Stephan Kern & Ben Warner. It might sound like the plot of a B-movie, but our Milky Way galaxy is due to collide with the Andromeda Galaxy in about five billion years time. Steve and Ben talk about this intergalactic smash up and how the ages of galaxies are determined. Also on the show this week: the transit of Venus, the new homes of the Square Kilometre Array, and the impending arrival of Ridley Scott's Prometheus.
