Astrophiz Astronomy podcast:
Brendan sometimes even gets how and why science works, and conducts in-depth interviews with leading astro and space researchers. In each episode we feature Astrophysicists, Space Scientists, Particle Physicists, Instrument scientists, optical & radio astronomers, Satcomm engineers, project leaders and aurora hunters. For Astrophotographers, we also hear from Dr Ian ‘Astroblog’ Musgrave who tells us when, where and what to look for in the sky over the coming weeks and explains astronomical phenomena in ‘Ian’s Tangent’.
This ongoing series has taken us through the history, theory and practice of radio astronomy from Faraday to Gravitational waves. Each episode includes the latest news roundup in this golden age of astrophysics. Enjoy! (& donate if you wish to help keep this podcast ad-free)

    Astrophiz126: Debatri Chattopadhyay ~ Heavy Mass Binaries & Gravitational Waves

    Astrophiz126: Debatri Chattopadhyay ~ Heavy Mass Binaries & Gravitational Waves

    Today our fabulous feature interview is with Debatri Chattopadhyay, an amazing OzGrav researcher and Doctoral Research Fellow at the Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne Australia.
    She is about to complete her Astrophysics PhD by publication and is working on Gravitational-wave astrophysics.
    Debatri uses the OzSTAR supercomputer to model gravitational waves resulting from high-energy collisions between heavy mass binaries like pulsars and black holes. She is a keen proponent of Manipuri dance and has also been awarded a place in Homeward Bound, a global leadership program for women in STEM. She’s off to Antarctica next year.

    Astrophiz 125-May SkyGuide

    Astrophiz 125: May SkyGuide with dr Ian ‘Astroblog’ Musgrave.

    For astrophotographers or naked eye observers with or without telescopes and/or binoculars, Ian gives us a comprehensive guide on what to look up for.
    We have planets to see in the morning and evening skies, planets lining up with the moon, a fabulous total lunar eclipse and the ever reliable eta Aquariid Meteor Shower.

    In ‘Ian’s tangent’ this month he gives us the skinny on powered and unpowered flights of robotic craft, including the Ingenuity helicopter, on Mars. We hear about the proposed Dragonfly Quadcopter mission that has been approved for Titan, and Ian also points out the challenges inherent in future missions which will involve controlled flights on Venus and Titan, and he also reminds us of the 1985 Soviet Vega mission with balloons on Venus.

    Astrophiz124-Shanika Galaudage-Gravitational Waves

    Out now, Astrophiz124 ~ Shanika Galaudage - Gravitational waves and population studies

    Listen:

    Shanika Galaudage is riding the crest of the wave of Gravitational Wave Astronomy with zest and a clear vision to make the complex science of GW astronomy accessible and understandable to her audience.

    Shanika is a remarkable early career Gravitational Wave astrophysicist who is doing fabulous population studies with gravitational wave data from the most recent LIGO/Virgo observation runs as a Monash University PhD candidate and OzGrav Researcher based in Melbourne, Australi

    Astrophiz123: Dr Ian ‘Astroblogger’ Musgrave’s April 2021 SkyGuide

    Astrophiz123: Dr Ian ‘Astroblogger’ Musgrave’s April 2021 SkyGuide

    A monthly treat for naked eye observers, telescopers and astrophotographers.

    Dr @ianfmusgrave gives us his fabulous guide to what to observe in the morning & evening skies for the four weeks including moon phase dates and when and where you can catch some wonderful planetary action

    In 'Ian's Tangent’ this month he give us a great insight into the optimal viewing of Zodiacal Light this month and the new discovery of the origins of the dust that causes Zodiacal Light. Great sciencing is evident.

    Astrophiz122-Chayan Chatterjee-AI Detective-Gravitational Waves

    Astrophiz122: Chayan Chatterjee - Gravitational Wave AI Detective

    Continuing our Gravitational Wave series, we have a great interview with OzGrav researcher and PhD candidate Chayan Chatterjee, who develops Machine Learning algorithms to analyse gravitational wave data to locate the origins of the ‘Chirps’ that signal cataclysmic events that warp the very fabric of Space-Time. Chayan is based at the University of Western Australia.
    You will love the clarity of Chayan’s depiction of Gravitational Wave astronomy, AI and Machine Learning.
