It’s Not Rocket Surgery Episode 105 – the latest Mars “lander”, Uranus’ new dark moons, Juno falls asleep, Planet 9 throwing things out of alignment, latest massive DDOS, Graphene, Bugs, Time Crystals… and MORE of the usual science, tech, and geek culture news.

NOTE – due to operator error in-studio, and technical issues with the backup recorder, the first 8-10 minutes of the show was not recorded… but in reality, it’s just intros and stuff… so no great loss.
