You cannot look up at the night sky on the Planet Earth and not wonder what it's like to be up there amongst the stars. And I always look up at the moon and see it as the single most romantic place within the cosmos. Tom Hanks
The scientific theory I like best is that the rings of Saturn are composed entirely of lost airline luggage. Mark Russel
Our population and our use of the finite resources of planet Earth are growing exponentially, along with our technical ability to change the environment for good or ill. Stephen Hawking
I would like to die on Mars. Just not on impact. Elon Musk

This week we join award winning singer-songwriter Bic Runga and her band performing songs from her four studio albums live from the Holy Trinity Cathedral in November 2011.
9:07 Country Life
The Country Life team hear about the deluge on the West Coast - and how Northland would like some of that water diverted its way. They're snipping the tips off chives with one of the country's biggest herb growers, they're with a woman who has a new love in her life…cobb horses, and a North Canterbury vege grower welcomes thousands of people onto his property to dig potatoes and pick peas for Christmas.
Lately with Karyn Hay is a late night radio show on RNZ National, with an eye on live events, an ear for music, a great sense of humour and a genuine interest in people and their stories.
11:07 The Mixtape
Harry Lyon, a musician singer and songwriter who along with the late Dave McArtney and Graham Brazier founded Hello Sailor, arguably Aotearoa's most iconic band who trail-blazed a domestic touring pub circuit and took their chances relocating to LA and Australia, before calling it a day. Harry segued off into the successful and short-lived Coup D'Etat' and Brazier's Legionnaires before Hello Sailor reformed again in 1985. Harry has also applied himself in academia. For many years he was Dean and General Manager of MAINZ (Music and Audio Institute of New Zealand) based in Auckland.
