    Ep. 556: Multi Messenger Astronomy

    Ep. 556: Multi Messenger Astronomy

    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.

    Ep. 555: Satellite Constellations and the Future of Astronomy

    Ep. 555: Satellite Constellations and the Future of Astronomy

    The other big issue at the AAS was the challenge that astronomy is going to face from all the new satellite constellations coming shortly. There are already 180 Starlinks in orbit, and thousands more are coming, not to mention the other constellations in the works. What will be the impact on astronomy, and what can we do about it?

    Ep. 554: Big Telescope Controversy in Hawai'i

    This week we're live at the American Astronomical Society's 235th meeting in Honolulu, Hawai'i. We learned about new planets, black holes and star formation, but the big issue hanging over the whole conference is the protests and politics over the new Thirty Meter Telescope due for construction on Mauna Kea.

    Ep. 552: Boyajian's star (and other strange stars)

    Ep. 552: Boyajian's star (and other strange stars)

    Huge surveys of the sky are finding more and more planets, stars and galaxies. But they're also turning up strange objects astronomers have never seen before, like Boyajian's star. Today we're going to talk about some unusual objects astronomers have discovered, and why this number is only going to go way way up.

    CosmoQuest Hangoutathon Promo

    CosmoQuest Hangoutathon Promo

    Hi everyone, Producer Susie here. This weekend, December 21-23, 2019, we will be having our CosmoQuest Hangoutathon.  For 40 straight hours, our team will be bringing you guests, science and fun live on our channel. We are raising money to pay for our team to continue to bring you science, and for us to continue our citizen science programs, like the extremely successful Bennu Mappers from this past year, where over 3500 of you wonderful volunteers mapped over 14 million rocks on the asteroid Bennu, looking for a safe place for the OSIRIS-REx mission to grab samples to return to earth.  We want to keep doing projects like this - and we need your help to continue doing the science.  Please join us at starting 9am EST / 6am PST / 1400UTC. If you can’t tune in live, you can catch the replays on Twitch, and we’ll be trying our best to archive all of the content on YouTube after this weekend. We’re accepting donations at As part of the Planetary Science Institute, we are a 501c3 non-profit, so all of your donations are tax deductible where the law allows.  Please watch, share and donate if you can, so we can keep bringing the science to you! Thank you for listening!

Simply the BEST

Dra. Pamela Gay e Fraser Cain estão entre as minhas pessoas favoritas do planeta nos últimos 3 anos. Podcast extremamente informativo, mas de maneira gostosa e fácil de entender. A maneira como o conhecimento transborda desses dois é algo que sempre me faz sorrir. Já ouvi todos os episódios e sempre volto a eles quando preciso de alguma referência. O material disponível no site também é ótimo e complementa perfeitamente a experiência.
