S2 E6 The Trojans: 17314 AISAKOS
In this special series, Tales of the NIght Sky takes you into the heart of a large group of asteroids that orbit with Jupiter around the sun. These two camps of heavenly bodies - the Greeks leading and the Trojans trailing Jupiter - are known as the Trojan asteroids. Each identified asteroid is named after a protagonist in Homer’s Iliad. And these characters find themselves locked in orbit, endlessly reliving the trauma of war.
This original series was co-created with KJ Dwyer and features collaborations with several writers.

In the first of the Trojans, the seer Aisakos interprets Queen Hecuba’s dream.
