Late last night I was flipping through the channels and decided to check out The Sky at Night's 50th Anniversary show with Sir Patrick Moore.
It was funny to see Dr. Brian May being interviewed on Mars in the year 2057! He talked about what life on Mars is like, showed viewers his personal items that he brought with him from Earth like Queen memorabilia and his Red Special guitar. He talked a bit about Lunar Live Aid which took place in 2046 - "shame about Roger, though".
I've mentioned before about Brian May's love for space and his book Bang! – The complete history of the Universe, so it was certainly apropos that he would be on the anniversary special. I thought his interview from Mars was hilarious and informative at the same time.
The first airing of the The Sky at Night's Anniversary program was April 1st on the BBC with repeats at various times.
Luckily the BBC has the video of the anniversary show up on their site:
