The 365 Days of Astronomy Podcast is a project that is publishing one podcast per day, 5 to 10 minutes in duration, for all 365 days of the year. The podcast episodes are written, recorded and produced by people around the world. We are looking for individuals, schools, companies and clubs to provide 5 - 10 minutes of audio for the daily podcast. You can do as few as 1 episode or up to 12 episodes (one per month, subject to our editorial discretion). Our goal is to encourage people to sign up for a particular day (or days) of the year.

    Observing With Webb - December

    Observing With Webb - December

    We apologize for the audio quality issues this month. It seems the noise limiting function is introducing more noise than it's limiting!
    CONJUNCTION MONTH! If there’s nothing else you do this month, mark your calendar, get your warm clothes set aside, and get ready for a very, very rare conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn on the 21st.  More details to come.  If you do more than that one thing, we also have another meteor shower and some good close encounters between the Moon and the planets.

    Weekly Space Hangout - Guest: Dr. Ingrid Daubar, Planetary Scientist, Brown University

    Weekly Space Hangout - Guest: Dr. Ingrid Daubar, Planetary Scientist, Brown University

    https://youtu.be/2dGmbY-uy9E
    Host: Fraser Cain ( @fcain )
    Special Guest: This week we are joined by Dr. Ingrid Daubar, Planetary Scientist from Brown University studying impact cratering within our solar system. Dr. Daubar is part of a team that has been using a new AI classification tool to identify geologic features on planetary surfaces, such as Mars.
     
    Ingrid has been involved in planetary science for more than two decades. Her research interests include impact craters and other time-varying phenomena on terrestrial planets. She has participated in science and operations on multiple missions including MRO, InSight, Europa Clipper, and Juno.
     
    Dr. Daubar’s research on small, recent impact craters on Mars and the Moon has allowed us to better understand the impact flux in the inner solar system, the chronology of recent events and timescales of geologic processes on these bodies, and the processes involved in modern-day cratering and modification over time of planetary surfaces.
     
    You can learn more about Ingrid by visiting https://vivo.brown.edu/display/idauba....

    - The Great Attractor. (For John Suffil.)
    - Arecibo Observatory is gone. :^(
    - Chang'e-5 lands on the Moon.
    - Big temperature changes in the Universe revealed.

    Awesome Astronomy - December Part 1

    Awesome Astronomy - December Part 1

    Paul Hill, Ralph Wilkins and Jenifer Millard host. Damien Phillips and John Wildridge produce.
    The Discussion:
    We discuss National Geographic’s The Right Stuff series on Disney+, get a little bit rantiferous about the use of jokey, timey-wimey titles in research papers and read out a few of your emails.
     
    The News: Rounding up the astronomy news this month we have:
    - An update to the Geysers on Jupiter’s moon Europa.
    - Another asteroid flies scarily close to Earth.
    - The latest developments in Muskworld.
    - China’s ambitious Chang’e-5 mission en-route to the moon.
     
    Main News story: The Hayabusa 2 mission and the imminent return of samples from asteroid Ryugu.
     
    The Sky Guide: This month we’re taking a look at the great winter constellation of Orion 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 December.
     
    Guide to the Electromagnetic Spectrum: In November we concluded our look at the electromagnetic spectrum. But as we now have a new method of detecting events beyond the electromagnetic spectrum, this month we explain gravitational wave astronomy.

    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).

    Ask A Spaceman Ep. 141: Astro 101 Part 3 - What Is A Star?

    Ask A Spaceman Ep. 141: Astro 101 Part 3 - What Is A Star?

    It’s time for school! The Astro101 series will cover some of the most important questions in astronomy. In today’s lesson, we’ll have: What are the different kinds of stars? Why does classification in astronomy make no sense? How the heck do we define a “star”, anyway? I discuss these questions and more in today’s Ask a Spaceman!

    Astronomy Cast Ep. 586: Life As We Know It: Habitable Exoplanets & Extremophiles

    https://youtu.be/MkrxGG32Ac4
    As scientists continue to explore the Earth, they're discovering life, surviving and even thriving in extreme environments. What hints can this give us about what we might find as we search for live on other worlds.
