The history of near-Earth astronomy contains many cases of bodies that may or may not have ever existed in the solar system we call home. In this episode of Stuff to Blow Your Mind, Robert Lamb and Joe McCormick take a journey through space to survey once-hypothetical bodies that took work to prove, once-imagined bodies that are now confirmed phantoms, and the unsolved mysteries where questions remain.

A lot of bias and a lot of opinions in this one. Statistics were accurate but the commentary left much to be desired.

Your heading is wrong and misleading, and your state it many times in the podcast. Covid 19 is a viral infection not a disease.

I'm very disappointed to have heard an ad for Mike Bloomberg on this show. Very disappointed. I hope I don't hear another one

Loved this show for years. It doesn't matter what the topic is, it is always presented to be fascinating, with Robert and Joe's curiosity being beautifully infectious. Can't reccommend enough.

Umm.. some crop circles contain hundreds of circles in intricate patterns all completely symetrical and can appear in less than an hour. Humans responsible? I seriously doubt it. This show was very misleading.
