Anyone who's ever looked up at night would know that it's a whole other world out there. So suit up with Dr Rob as he goes for a trek through the stars, a universal voyage, and a cosmic expedition to SCOPE out the science of deep space! As once again the ordinary becomes extraordinary, under the SCOPE.Deep Space 101Most of the Deep space is exactly that, Space. Nothing. A huge vacuum. But the next most common things that we can see are stars. So what are they and what's the difference between a dwarf star and a red dwarf?
