Several of us were interviewed by Chris North at a recent Herschel meeting about what we thought were the highlights of the mission. This was broadcast on Radio Cardiff on 19th May as part of the Pythagoras’ Trousers programme. I don’t know where they got that title but at least they know how to use apostrophes.
You can now hear this section of the programme here.
At the end of the segment, starting at about 17 minutes in, is an attempt to explain the Herschel mission in ordinary plain language, using a script by Jon Brumfitt & Leo Metcalfe read by me. I’m glad that’s all clear now.
