    Things that go boom with a side of quantum entanglement

    Things that go boom with a side of quantum entanglement

    No, Betelgeuse still hasn’t exploded, but other things have gone boom in the past and today we look at the results of one of the brightest supernovae, SN2006gy, and the oldest supernovae that went into forming the metal poor ancient star J0815+4729. Understanding these objects takes powerful computers, and we also discuss how new materials science points at how a new alloy, when super-cooled, may be a needed breakthrough for quantum computing.

    Chinese Launches, Smallsats, and SpaceX Test: Rocket Roundup

    Chinese Launches, Smallsats, and SpaceX Test: Rocket Roundup

    There where three orbital launches last week!  Annie brings the audience up to speed about the two Chinese launches and Arianespace's hefty passengers on the Ariane 5.  She also rehashes the SpaceX Crew Dragon In Flight Abort test and explains why the Crew Dragon isn't quite ready for human-rated flight yet.

    SpaceX Crew Dragon, Alien and local comet news, and a dive into Sag A*

    SpaceX Crew Dragon, Alien and local comet news, and a dive into Sag A*

    This weekend SpaceX purposely exploded a Falcon9 to test the Crew Dragon abort system and as everything went as planned, and we discuss what is next - maybe - for the SpaceX human space program. From there, we look at two new comets from other solar systems, nitrogen in comets from our solar system, and then take the promised deep dive into news about our Galaxy’s Sag A*.

    Why are new planets still news? And why is the sky red?

    Why are new planets still news? And why is the sky red?

    25 years after the discovery of exoplanets, and more than 4000 planets later we’re still getting press releases on new planets. In this episode we argue planet discoveries are now science as usual. We then take a look at how the ash from fires and the Tael Volcano are changing the color of the sunset, and for some the color of our days.

    Weird Valtira asteroid, Phosphorous from comets, & merging binary stars near Sag A*

    Weird Valtira asteroid, Phosphorous from comets, & merging binary stars near Sag A*

    Today’s news is all about weird stuff having a bad evolution. From the discovery of an asteroid destined to self-destruct on Venus or Mercury to comets bringing phosphorus to Earth one impact a time, to binary stars getting merged and pulled apart by Sag A* - let’s just say it’s a violent news day.
