A chance find by a young mathematician led him to try and solve the problem of the planet Uranus’ orbit – which did not appear to follow true to Newton’s Laws. In France Urbain le Verrier also wanted to solve the mystery and thus began one of science’s greatest stories full of great excitement, discovery, rivalry, jealousy, betrayal and cooperation. Andrew entertains you with the story of the discovery of Neptune a planet predicted on paper. Illustrated by beautiful images, accompanied by delightful music Andrew will take you from the discovery to the very latest images of that distant planet.
