365 Days of Astronomy – Life and Death in Orion

Today’s 365 Days of Astronomy Podcast is all about Life and Death in Orion.

Christopher Crockett from Lowell Observatory tells us all about the constellation Orion and some of it’s cool pieces and parts like Betelguese (which I still pronounce like the movie BTW) and the star forming region of the Orion nebula (Messier 42) as well as the history and mythology of this constellation from various cultures.
