    Did you hear the news? Nobel prizes for Black Holes! Now, we know there are stellar mass black holes and supermassive black holes, but how do you get from one to the other? How do black holes get more massive?

    Deep Astronomy - Black Dwarf Supernovae at the End of the Universe

    Deep Astronomy - Black Dwarf Supernovae at the End of the Universe

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xw-sDmt7PY4
    Hosted by Tony Darnell.
    We know that white dwarf stars are the stellar remnants of the death of a star roughly the size of our Sun.  These stars are embers that slowly cool over eons into black dwarfs.  The time required for this to happen is so long that most of the universe will be gone by then.
     
    But then, according to Dr. Matt Caplan, these black dwarfs can explode into fiery supernovae long after the universe has gone dark.  How is this possible?  Please join Tony Darnell as he discusses the end of all things with Dr. Matt Caplan.

    Weekly Space Hangout - Guest: Dr. Jane Huang and Dr. Jonathan Williams Discuss Spiral Protoplanetary Disks

    Weekly Space Hangout - Guest: Dr. Jane Huang and Dr. Jonathan Williams Discuss Spiral Protoplanetary Disks

    https://youtu.be/UIPCqMck5f8
    Host: Fraser Cain ( @fcain )
    Special Guests: This week we are joined by Dr. Jane Huang and Dr. Jonathan Willams from the Center for Astrophysics, Harvard & Smithsonian (CfA). Dr. Huang, Dr. Williams, and their team recently discovered some surprising information about the size and shape of some protoplanetary disks.
    In their peer-reviewed paper published in The Astrohpysical Journal, it was announced that the protoplanetary disk surrounding the star RU Lup (in the constellation of Lupus) is not only surprisingly large, but also has a very distinct spiral shape that extends nearly 1000 AU beyond Ru Lup.
     
    You can read more about this exciting discovery here: https://earthsky.org/space/ru-lup-spi...
     
    Additionally, the team's peer-reviewed paper is available for download here: https://arxiv.org/abs/2007.02974
    Regular Guests:
    Dr. Brian Koberlein ( https://briankoberlein.com/ & @BrianKoberlein )
    Moiya McTier ( https://www.moiyamctier.com/ & @GoAstroMo )
    Beth Johnson - SETI Institute ( @SETIInstitute / @planetarypan )
    This week's stories:
    - Alien planets that could have more diversity than Earth itself.
    - Black Holes making complex GW chirps as they merge.
    - Pluto's snow-capped mountains.

    The Daily Space - Martian Dunes, Carina Nebula, Nobel Prize in Physics, WGBH NOVA Labs

    The Daily Space - Martian Dunes, Carina Nebula, Nobel Prize in Physics, WGBH NOVA Labs

    Research from our home Planetary Science Institute shows that the dune fields on Mars provide solid evidence for lithification and burial. Plus, Carina Nebula has been imaged with adaptive optics and looks amazing! And we take a look at the winners of this year’s Nobel Prize in Physics.
    Also we have an interview with Daryl Choa Producer of WGBH's NOVA Labs digital online learning platform for teenagers.
