    830: Who Will Get to Mars First, Black Hole Through Earth, Dinosaurs in Space | Q&A 185

    In this week's Questions and Answers show, I explain what James Webb will see when it looks at SgrA*, why black holes happen to be facing towards us, and if asteroid strikes can hurl dinosaurs into space.


    00:00 Start
    00:59 [Tatooine] Will Webb look at SgrA*?
    05:23 [Coruscant] Why are both black holes facing us?

    09:57 [Naboo] How do stars get bigger than red dwarfs?
    12:36 [Kamino] Will there be new physics beyond Newton and Einstein?
    15:43 [Bespin] What would happen if a small black hole passed through the Earth?
    17:27 [Mustafar] Has water been found on the Moon?
    20:13 [Alderaan] How bad is the dust on Mars?
    21:54 [Dagobah] Where does a planet go if it's absorbed by a black hole and then radiated away?
    24:11 [Yavin] Are telescopes generating too much data?
    27:01 [Mandalore] Who will take over after us?
    28:19 [Geonosis] What will be the next space propulsion systems?
    31:14 [Corellia] Will James Webb reveal planets at Proxima B?
