SFP: Episode 335: Erbit Changed

This episode contains: We all survived the recent storm in California, some of us more than others. Watch out for those downed power lines, Ben!

If You Liked It You Should Have Put A Ring On It: Saturn’s tilt caused by its moons, researchers say. The influence of Saturn’s satellites can explain the tilt of the rotation axis of the gas giant. We also talk about The Time Machine (2002) and whether the exploded moon would have the same mass and properties as the unexploded moon.

Science Fiction: Ben shepherds a final talk about Star Trek Discovery season 3. We analyze “That Hope Is You” parts one and two, and have some very polite discussions. Next we tackle episodes 3 and 4 of WandaVision. The recap of episode 3 short and sweet, we give the most time to episode 4, with as many call outs to other Marvel properties as possible. Pietro, Magneto, Mutants, Thor 1 & 2, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and Captain Marvel. Steven attempts to figure where WandaVision is headed, but thinks there must be another major character yet to be introduced. We finish with Ben giving his final thoughts on The Leftovers. He says it’s a gift.
