    Deep Astronomy - LISA Mission Update: The Future of Gravitational Wave Astronomy

    Deep Astronomy - LISA Mission Update: The Future of Gravitational Wave Astronomy

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_lM8RcW7910
    Have you been wondering, as I have, what the latest news is on the amazing space telescope known as LISA?  Well wonder no longer as members of the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) team will be on hand to give us an update and answer your questions.
     
    LISA will be the first space-based gravitational wave observatory. Selected to be ESA's third large-class mission, it will address the science theme of the Gravitational Universe. LISA will consist of three spacecraft separated by 2.5 million km in a triangular formation, following Earth in its orbit around the Sun. Launch is expected in 2034.

    Weekly Space Hangout - Exploring Mars With Professional Martian Dr. Tanya Harrison

    Weekly Space Hangout - Exploring Mars With Professional Martian Dr. Tanya Harrison

    https://youtu.be/rsPU8kQPk2U
    Host: Fraser Cain ( @fcain )
    Special Guest: This week we are excited to welcome "Professional Martian" Dr. Tanya Harrison to the WSH. Tanya is a respected Mars expert who worked as a geoscientist and mission operations specialist on multiple NASA Mars missions over the past 13 years, including the Opportunity, Curiosity, and Perseverance rovers, and the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter. A thought leader in the commercial space sector from her previous role as Director of Research for Arizona State University’s NewSpace Initiative, she currently works as the Director of Science Strategy for the federal arm of the Earth observing satellite company Planet Labs.
     
    Tanya holds a Ph.D. in Geology with a Specialization in Planetary Science and Exploration from the University of Western Ontario. There, her research focused on the formation and evolution of features on Mars called gullies, and what they can tell us about the recent climate history of the Red Planet. She also holds a Masters in Earth and Environmental Sciences from Wesleyan University, and a B.Sc. in Astronomy and Physics from the University of Washington. Her honours include two NASA Group Achievement Awards, the Amelia Earhart Fellowship for women in aerospace and the Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship, Canada’s most prestigious doctoral award. She was also named one of Via Satellite’s Young People to Watch of 2018, and a Future Space Leader in 2019.
     
    Dr. Harrison has appeared in documentaries for channels such as National Geographic and The Weather Channel, regularly appears on radio interviews with the BBC, and has written on space-related topics for outlets including Slate, Canada’s The Globe and Mail, the Houston Chronicle, and Astronomy magazine. Her first non-academic book, For All Humankind (2019, Mango Publishing) highlights international memories of the day of the Apollo 11 Moon landing and made the #1 release on Amazon’s Aeronautics and Astronautics book list.
     
    Committed to fostering the next generation of space professionals, Tanya is active in mentorship, education, and outreach initiatives. She serves on the Board of Advisors for Explore Mars and Students for the Exploration and Development of Space (SEDS), and the Board of Governors for the National Space Society. She is also a co-founder of the Zed Factor Fellowship, an initiative to increase diversity, inclusion, and accessibility in the aerospace sector through internship opportunities, mentorship, and community engagement.
     
    Outside of her life in space, Tanya is also a professional photographer, public transit enthusiast, and chronic creative. She currently resides in Washington DC and Toronto, where she can usually be found with a camera and NASA stickers in hand.
     
    You can find Tanya prolifically tweeting about all things Mars, space, and Canada on Twitter as @tanyaofmars (https://twitter.com/tanyaofmars​)

    Cheap Astronomy - Dear CheapAstro # 066: Looking Ahead

    Cheap Astronomy - Dear CheapAstro # 066: Looking Ahead

    This is our near future, unless it doesn’t happen.
    Dear Cheap Astronomy – How will we exploit the Solar System?
    Hey, we’re the human race. Exploiting natural resources is what we do. What guides the way we do it is consumer demand, access and cost.
     
    Dear Cheap Astronomy – Small Astronomy Joke, Apophis will fly-by Earth on Friday the 13th 2029.
    Yep, it’s true, the big bad, the monster of near-earth Objects 99942 Apophis will do its long awaited next fly-by less than 10 years from now in 2029 and yes in April and yes on April the 13th which is a Friday. No doubt this concordance with humanity’s obsession with extracting meaning from arbitrary numbers will be remarked upon for many years to come.
