    Weekly Space Hangout - Guest: Dr. Ronald Mallett

    Weekly Space Hangout - Guest: Dr. Ronald Mallett

    https://youtu.be/iBwEAKA2ylw
    Host: Fraser Cain ( @fcain )
    Special Guest: This week we are airing Fraser's prerecorded interview with Dr. Ronald Mallett, Professor Emeritus and Research Professor of Physics at the University of Connecticut in Storrs.
     
    Ron received his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. in physics from the Pennsylvania State University. In 1975 he joined the physics faculty at the University of Connecticut in Storrs. His research interests include black holes, general relativity, quantum cosmology, and relativistic astrophysics. As part of his research, Ron has hypothesized that a rotating ring laser could, via frame dragging, sufficiently twist space and time to mimic the conditions inside a rotating Black Hole, potentially allowing a binary message (encoded in a neutrino stream) to be sent back in time. You can learn more about the theory behind Ron's hypothesis in this January 2020 Popular Mechanics article: https://www.popularmechanics.com/scie...​
     
    Prof. Mallett has published numerous papers on black holes and cosmology in professional journals. His breakthrough research on time travel has been featured extensively in print and broadcast media around the world and has appeared in a feature-length documentary "How to Build a Time Machine" which won Best Documentary at the 2017 Philip K Dick Film Festival in New York City. The documentary is now available on Amazon Prime.
     
    His published memoir “Time Traveler: A Scientist’s Personal Mission to Make Time Travel a Reality” has been translated into Korean, Chinese, Japanese and is currently in discussion become a major Hollywood motion picture.
     
    To learn more about Ron and his research, visit his faculty website https://physics.uconn.edu/person/rona...​.
     
    You can also follow Ron on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/ronald.l.mal...​) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/rlmallett​).
    Regular Guests:
    Dr. Brian Koberlein ( https://briankoberlein.com/ & @BrianKoberlein )
    Dr. Alex Teachey ( https://alexteachey.wordpress.com/ & @alexteachey )
    This week's stories:
    - A really good measurement of Dark Energy.
    - China launches the core module of its space station.
    - StarShip SN15 NO GO BOOM!

    Awesome Astronomy - May Part 1

    Awesome Astronomy - May Part 1

    Paul Hill, Ralph Wilkins and Dr. Jenifer Millard host. Damien Phillips, John Wildridge and Dustin Ruoff produce.
     
    The Discussion:
    - Binocular observing.
    - Do you want Ralph’s 115mm triplet refractor & goto mount?
    - The Wiltshire Audio Anomaly.
    - Listeners emails on historical images and refractor rivalry.
     
    The News: Rounding up the astronomy news in February, we have:
    - An update on that life on Venus story.
    - Life around Proxima Centauri is in for a blast.
    - More data to add to the universe’s expansion rate conundrum.
    - Was Oumuamua really an interstellar comet?
    Main News story:
    The US’ Fermi National Accelerator follows CERN with a muon discovery that also hints at a big anomaly in the Standard Model of Physics.
     
    The Sky Guide: This month we’re taking a look at the constellation of Ursa Major with a guide to its history, how to find it, a couple of deep sky objects and a round-up of the solar system views on offer in May.
     
    Q&A: I'm getting into my 50s, and hearing Ralph say what good times we're in as regards gaining knowledge of the Universe leads me to wonder.... what will I be around for? From our good friend Peter Jeal from London, UK.

    Bio: Awesome Astronomy is a podcast beamed direct from an underground bunker on Mars to promote science, space and astronomy (and enslave Earth if all goes well).

    Astronomy Cast Ep. 603: New Colors of the Radio Spectrum

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DaQxukCVqRU
    Last week we talked about how new telescopes and techniques are allowing astronomers to explore the shortest wavelengths of light. This week we go to the other end of the electromagnetic spectrum and explore the longer radio waves which are now accessible to astronomers.
