    Cosmic Savannah - Mini #8: Capturing the Whispers of Hydrogen

    Cosmic Savannah - Mini #8: Capturing the Whispers of Hydrogen

    Hosted by: Tshiamiso Makwela.
    In this mini episode, we chat with Andrew “Andy” Firth, a Masters students at the South African Astronomical Observatory and the University of Cape Town.
     
    Andrew tries to detect the faint signals of hydrogen gas in distant galaxies using a new technique. He does this through stacking data cubes of these galaxies. This clever new technique will be applied to some of the MeerKAT radio telescope data.
     
    Growing up in the Karoo, Andrew had the pleasure of experiencing the beautiful Southern night sky. With this experience, Andy not only fell in love with the stars from afar, but also believes that astronomy is one of the avenues of understanding the universe and our origins at large.

    Weekly Space Hangout - The Night Sky with Astrophotographer Ian Lauer

    Weekly Space Hangout - The Night Sky with Astrophotographer Ian Lauer

    https://youtu.be/npZlheYhgeo
    Host: Fraser Cain ( @fcain )
    Special Guest: This week we are thrilled to be joined by astrophotographer Ian Lauer. Ian is an astronomer and astrophotographer with a passion for public speaking and sharing the wonders of the night sky with the public. He has worked with telescope manufacturers and retailers around the world to building telescope systems for private and professional observatories, astrophotographers, government projects and educational institutions.
     
    Ian has a knack for making people laugh and he incorporates this skill into transforming what can often be dry and dull science topics into fun and exciting concepts. Whether he’s speaking in front of thousands of people or one-on-one, Ian's passion and energy always shines through regardless of the delivery medium, be it podcasts, stage talks, or TV shows.
     
    In addition to astronomy, Ian's other passions include backpacking, camping, and particularly metal music. According to Ian: "I've spent decades attending live metal music events, always in search of up and coming musical artists. I have and will continue to support and promote artists from the metal scene, both big and small. The joy of discovery knows no boundaries, and music is no exception."
     
    You can learn more about Ian and how to register for his astrophotography workshops by visiting his website: https://ianlauerastro.com/

    Guide To Space - What’s on the Surface of Venus? A History of the Venera Program

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1c-P1yEEnM
    Hosted by Fraser Cain.
    With so much attention on Mars, it's easy to forget there's a whole other Earth-sized planet nearby, worthy of exploration: Venus. And the Soviets worked really hard to tell us what it's like down on the surface of Venus with their Venera program.
