The 365 Days of Astronomy Podcast is a project that is publishing one podcast per day, 5 to 10 minutes in duration, for all 365 days of the year. The podcast episodes are written, recorded and produced by people around the world. We are looking for individuals, schools, companies and clubs to provide 5 - 10 minutes of audio for the daily podcast. You can do as few as 1 episode or up to 12 episodes (one per month, subject to our editorial discretion). Our goal is to encourage people to sign up for a particular day (or days) of the year.

    Cosmic Savannah Ep. 12: Further Adventures in Oz

    Cosmic Savannah Ep. 12: Further Adventures in Oz

    Hosted by Dr. Jacinta Delhaize & Dr. Daniel Cunnama.
    Jacinta continues her visit to Australia, this week chatting with Dr. Jeff Wagg about the Square Kilometer Array (SKA) and Ahmed Elagali about his work on superclusters, neutral hydrogen and ring galaxies.
    Jeff is a project scientist for the Square Kilometer Array (SKA) science team and he updates us on the current status of the SKA, as an organisation, but also from a construction point of view. Incredibly exciting to see this massive project taking shape!
    Ahmed is a PhD student from Sudan working at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) and he talks to us about superclusters and his role in the discovery of the Vela Supercluster. Ahmed also explains some of his recent work on neutral hydrogen and ring galaxies.

    Astronomy Cast Ep. 556: Multi Messenger Astronomy

    Astronomy Cast Ep. 556: Multi Messenger Astronomy

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eg8kJy-_90Y
    Streamed live Jan 24, 2020.
    For the longest time astronomers could only study the skies with telescopes. But then new techniques and technologies were developed to help us see in different wavelengths. Now astronomers can study objects in both visible light, neutrinos, gravitational waves and more. The era of multi-messenger astronomy is here.

    Dr. Al Grauer hosts. Dr. Albert D. Grauer ( @Nmcanopus ) is an observational asteroid hunting astronomer. Dr. Grauer retired from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock in 2006. travelersinthenight.org
    Today's 2 topics:
    - Women have long played a prominent role at the forefront of astronomical and space research. Caroline Herschel, Annie Jump Cannon and Dr. Jocelyn Bell Burnell for instance.
    - Could a space alien detect planet Earth and learn something about it if it were so far away that our Sun were only a tiny point of light in its night sky?

    Cheap Astronomy Ep. 134: AWAT - Bubblology

    Cheap Astronomy Ep. 134: AWAT - Bubblology

    One model of a hypothetical multiverse has, perhaps appropriately, some similarity to a glass of beer. Imagine an eternal false vacuum – that’s a bit like a fluid, though not all that much like a fluid – since it doesn’t have volume, in fact it doesn’t have any spatial dimensions. Then imagine that this eternal false vacuum expands.

    Ken is the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) Operations Project Scientist and the Ground System Scientist for WFIRST. He leads the Stellar Imager Vision Mission concept development, and provides scientific guidance to the OpTIIX ISS-based technology demonstration project. He is also a member of the "Exoplanets and Stellar Astrophysics Laboratory" at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.

    Ken studies the chromospheres, transition regions, winds, and circumstellar shells of cool stars. He is also interested in the development and operations of UV spectroscopic instruments and large baseline space interferometers.

    Ken earned his PhD in astronomy from Ohio State University and enjoys photography. He is an enthusiastic fan of all things Joss Whedon, Star Trek and Disney. Ken credits both Star Trek and the 1964-65 New York World’s Fair, which he attended as a child, with fueling his desire to work for NASA.
