George Hrab is FAR

By Phil Plait | February 12, 2009 2:01 pm

George Hrab’s 365 Days of Astronomy full-length video is up on YouTube!

The best part, of course, is 33 seconds in.

George Hrab and my book

Thesaurus? Fine by me!

The video was done as part of the 365 Days of Astronomy podcast, in turn as part of the International Year of Astronomy.

And, of course, it’s made of awesome, because that’s how Geo rolls.

  1. Why oh why does Uncle Sam think that YouTube needs to be blocked?

    Oh yeah, I suppose Uncle Sam would like for me to actually do some work. ūüėõ

  2. We’ve been cheated! George Hrab promised 365 days of Astronomy and that video is only three minutes long!


    Larian LeQuella, because you would not get any work done! ūüėõ

    I liked “George Precision HARB” lol.

    Uncle Sam tries to block Youtube for me, but if I use the right proxy server, I can watch embedded videos, but can’t go to the site. So I still have the ability to not get work done, I just have to work a little harder at it.

    Fun video… not much real information on how far this stuff really is…

    So, he’s saying what, exactly? That it’s far away?

    Lovely hat.

    But I don’t like narrow ties.

    Go listen to the podcasts at

    Each ten minute or so episode is about astronomy. One per day by a variety of people on a variety of topics. And you can hear George’s theme song that’s a 25 second version of the video chorus. Or fast forward over it if it’s the sixth podcast in a row. Stop at about 1 minute into the podcast.

    Great fun in the video.

  22. This video totally just made my day. ūüėÄ
