Star Birth

The many star-forming areas of our galaxy are obscured by interstellar dust, but Herschel, a new space telescope, can see these areas in infrared light. Sir Patrick Moore is joined by Professor Derek Ward-Thompson and Dr Chris North to examine the latest stunning images from Herschel.

Pete Lawrence shows what is on offer in the June sky and Paul Abel searches for a comet - but will he find it?
