#122 - August 2022 Part 1 AWESOME ASTRONOMY

    • Science

The Discussion:
The release of JWST’s first images, the press conferences and media coverage.
Emails on astrophotography, Dr Jen’s TV appearances and a more politically correct alternative name for JWST.
 
The News:
Rounding up the astronomy news in August, we have:
We now know why Jupiter doesn’t have rings like Saturn A huge triple star system with a violent past A fossil galaxy – one of the first galaxies from the early universe Some good news for the prospects for life on Mars The big news story: What else? It’s JWST innit?
 
The Sky Guide:
This month we’re taking a look at the summer constellation of Cygnus 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 August.
 
Q&A:
No time for Q&A – we’ve got JWST to prattle on about!
