Award-winning comedian and part-time local authority temp Helen Keen loves space rockets.

This Radio 4 space extravaganza features fewer close-ups of Professor Brian Cox looking cool in front of a rocket than Wonders of the Solar System, but more weird and wonderful stories about the geniuses, Nazis and Satanists who propelled humankind to the stars. It Is Rocket Science! takes you on a whistlestop comic tour of the great brains who put monkeys, ladies, dogs and gentlemen into orbit.
