Summary, in English

Michael Way works at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies where he is modeling planetary atmospheres, with a special interest for Venus and its history. He was visiting Lund Observatory to give a talk at the Källén Seminars for Young Astronomers recently, and we invited him onto the podcast to ask him if there is a chance that Venus has ever been habitable (Spoiler: the answer is 'yes').

In this second season of the Meridian we are also bringing you some field reporting from the Nordic Optical Telescope on La Palma, where a team of astronomers are trying to catch an ultra-hot Jupiter-sized exoplanet.
