Sleepy Story in Space Time, Halley and His Comet

Astronomy: The Science of the Heavenly Bodies by David P. Todd

The sleepy story of Halley discovering his comet.

Tonight’s sleepy story is the tale of how Edmond Halley discovered the comet that was named after him. There’s a lot of talk of calculating the mass of astronomical objects and explaining their movement in this podcast episode. We learn about the life of Halley and his importance to his contemporaries, but you’ll fall asleep with me telling you about it well before we get to the end.

Sleepy Time Tales Merch and Stuff

I’ve been putting up a lot of new designs on both Redbubble and Teepublic. I usually do Redbubble first and then do a bit upload to Teepublic later if you have a store preference.

Not all of the designs are Sleepy Time Tales branded, actually most aren’t, so you can support the podcast without needing to emblazon the logo on yourself. 😊
