    NOIRLab - The Origins Of Castaway Gamma-Ray Bursts

    NOIRLab - The Origins Of Castaway Gamma-Ray Bursts

    Gamma-ray bursts are some of the most powerful explosions in the universe. Short gamma ray bursts are caused by the merger of two neutron stars. However, not all short gamma-ray bursts are associated with galaxies. In this podcast, Brendan O’connor, a graduate student at George Washington University, described recent research into the host galaxies of short gamma-ray bursts. 
     
    Bios: 
    - Rob Sparks is in the Communications, Education and Engagement group at NSF’s NOIRLab in Tucson, Arizona..
    - Brendan O'connor is a 6th year PhD student in the Department of Physics at The George Washington University working in collaboration with scientists at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) and the University of Maryland, College Park. His research is in the field of time domain and transient astrophysics. In particular, he is interested in the formation and evolution of high energy transients and their progenitors, and uses a variety of optical, infrared, and X-ray observatories to study transient phenomena across the electromagnetic spectrum.

    Guide To Space - Harvesting Resources From The Solar System: ISRU

    Guide To Space - Harvesting Resources From The Solar System: ISRU

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qx0WJ1LvIc
    Rocket launches are expensive. Even with huge price drops from SpaceX and other New Space companies, there’s no cheap way to get stuff down here in Earth’s gravity well up to low Earth orbit. 
     
    In order to really survive and thrive in space, we’ve got to learn to live off the land, to acquire the resources in space that will allow us to survive… in space. We’ve got to learn to turn those raw materials into forms we need: fuel, breathable air, water, construction materials, and eventually even finished goods like rocket parts and electronics.

An excellent astronomy education channel. Highly recommend it.

Great daily bite of space news

I've been following this podcast series for over a year now, and am a keen listener. It's great that there's a mixture of different content on here; interviews, discussions, informative pieces. They also come from different people, so you get a good range of approaches and views. If you want good coverage of recent events in astronomy, and some good explanations of science concepts, this is the place!

kobrix ,

Informative and varied

This excellent astronomy podcast presents nuggets of knowledge from all branches of the astronomical sciences in an entertaining and enlightening daily update from a variety of international viewpoints. By day 330 even the once irritating intro music can't dent a five-star rating.
