23min of Ska : Lysithea, the 12th Moon of Jupiter

Lysithea is a prograde irregular satellite of Jupiter. It was discovered by Seth Barnes Nicholson in 1938 at Mount Wilson Observatory and is named after the mythological Lysithea, daughter of Oceanus and one of Zeus’ lovers.

Lysithea didn’t receive its present name until 1975; before then, it was simply known as Jupiter X. It was sometimes called “Demeter” from 1955 to 1975.

It belongs to the Himalia group, five moons orbiting between 11 and 13 Gm from Jupiter at an inclination of about 28.3°.

23min of Ska : Candy is Dandy

If you say you don’t like candy, I’ll tell you that you’re a liar. I don’t like any food more than candy. I’m in my thirties and I still go crazy for sweets and stuff. Nothings better than a huge Mr. Goodbar and a tall glass or Tang. So yeah, that’s what inspired this latest episode, candy, sweets, sugar, stuff like that. Man, oh man, do I like candy.
