The Ship Of The Imagination travels to Australia to see the stars as sharply as our ancestors must have seen them. We are searching for Eta Carina, some 7500 light years away, and the evil twin that will gravitationally torment it - not to become a mere supernova, but a hypernovae - that will one day light up the night in the southern hemisphere like another full moon!
