Our next guest is lovely Jane Jackson - hello Jane - it's lovely to see you. What line of work are you in?

I'm a nuclear physicist (difficulty pronouncing it) giggle.

Nuclear Physicist.

Yes, that's it.

Where do you base your operations?

I spend most of my time at Cape Carnival.

Canaveral.

That's it - Carniverous - Cape Carniverous.

What do you do at Cape Canaveral?

I send up the rockets.

Tell us about it.

Well - it's top secret and I can't say too much about it, but the last one I sent up - oh golly - what a mess - well, the rocket got off beautifully - but Cape Carnival is no longer in Florida - it's in Alaska - that's why they made it a state - to get the launching pad back. And the men who made the final checks on the rocket, just before I sent it up - are in Connecticut - Texas - India and Madagascar.

And one guy who got his coat caught on the rocket - keeps sending us messages saying he's out of this world.
