With Jane Garvey. Daniella Genas is one of the three businesswomen Woman's Hour is following throughout 2011. Today we report on her first session with her mentor Gita Patel. Dr Jennifer Wiseman is an astrophysicist who works for NASA and this evening she's giving a Faraday Institute Lecture in Cambridge. She talks to Jane about the Hubble Space Telescope and her understanding of our place in the universe. Should older couples whose children have flown the nest be allowed to adopt? We discuss moves to make this easier and a new manual: 'What To Do About Everything'; Barbara Toner gives Jane tips about domestic life.
