Get your daily dose of all that's new in space and astronomy. The sky is not the limit, as we bring you a fast-paced roundup of launches, landings, and everyday discoveries. The Daily Space is brought to you by the team behind CosmoQuest at the Planetary Science Institute, and features hosts Dr. Pamela L. Gay & Annie Wilson.
New Breakthrough in 350 Year Old Astronomical Mystery
A nova spotted by astronomers 350 years ago is not what it appeared to be, and new data makes the object even more mysterious. Plus magnetars, gamma-ray bursts, sunspots, asteroids, dark matter, and a Kickstarter to preserve an historic observatory in Japan.
Centaur Seen Changing to Jupiter Family Comet for First Time
In a surprise Planetary Pandemonium episode, we look at a comet that is caught in the process of moving from Centaur to Jupiter Family Comet and doing it on a human timescale. Also, an ancient Martian megaflood and a newly discovered minimoon for Earth.
Rocket Roundup for November 25, 2020
Join us for this week's Rocket Roundup with host Dr. Pamela Gay as we look back at the launches that happened from the past week, including a fun and important Rocket Lab launch, two launches from SpaceX, and the Chang’e 5 mission to the Moon.
Black Hole’s Dust Ring Casting Shadows
Once again, we find that dust is the culprit, this time causing a black hole to cast shadows out from the heart of its galaxy. Plus, a megaflood on ancient Mars, a fossil galaxy in the Milky Way, another minimoon for Earth, newborn jets and more.
Cosmic Mystery Solved and Stellar Missing Link Discovered
Today’s top story focuses on the Blue Ring Nebula, which researchers say is the phase of a star merger never seen before, providing the missing link for merger progression. Plus, stories on Mars, laboratory supernovae, Steve (no, really), JUICE, gravity waves and Enceladus.
Rocket Roundup for November 18, 2020
Join us for this week's Rocket Roundup with host Annie Wilson as we look back at the launches that happened from the past week, including a Chinese launch, the NROL-101 launch (finally), the NASA/SpaceX Crew-1 Dragon launch and docking, and, unfortunately, a failed Vega launch from Arianespace.
