    850: Medical Emergencies on the ISS, White Dwarf VS Red Dwarf, True Color of SLS | Q&A 189

    850: Medical Emergencies on the ISS, White Dwarf VS Red Dwarf, True Color of SLS | Q&A 189

    In this week's Questions and Answers show, I explain how astronauts are trained to deal with medical emergencies if the Universe is expanding smoothly or chaotically, and what would survive longer, a white dwarf or a red dwarf?


    00:00 Start
    01:34 [Tatooine] What if there's a medical emergency on the ISS?
    04:13 [Coruscant] Could we see before the Big Bang?
    09:28 [Hoth] Are there stars below the Earth too?
    12:22 [Naboo] Is there a way to see something moving faster than light?
    15:00 [Kamino] Why is the SLS fuel tank orange?
    16:30 [Bespin] Could Titan serve as a fuel depot?
    18:19 [Mustafar] Would the expansion of the Universe eventually spaghettify all matter?
    21:37 [Alderaan] If you rode a space elevator, wouldn't you fall back down?
    23:36 [Dagobah] What lasts longer, a red dwarf or a white dwarf?
    25:44 [Yavin] Would I like a solution to dark matter or dark energy?
    26:41 [Mandalore] Why doesn't the Moon fall down to the Earth?
    28:28 [Geonosis] Has anyone actually tried going the speed of light?
    29:20 [Corellia] How could we broadcast our existence to aliens?
    31:47 [Crait] How will astronomers know where to point JWST to see the first galaxies?
    32:59 [Endor] Could we be inside a nebula?
    34:44 [Exegol] What new telescope am I looking forward to?


    Want to be part of the questions show? Ask a short question on any video on my channel. I gather a bunch up each week and answer them here.

    847: Can ISS Be Recycled, Artificial Meteor Storms, Can Hubble See JWST | Q&A 188

    In this week's questions and answers show, I explain why most quasars are very far away, consider what would happen if you brought Pluto into the inner Solar System, and deliver the heartbreaking news of why the ISS won't be recycled.


    00:00 Start
    01:25 [Tatooine] Can quasars appear anywhere in the Universe?
    04:35 [Coruscant] What if you brought Pluto into the inner Solar System?
    07:13 [Hoth] Why can't the ISS be recycled?
    11:22 [Naboo] Why don't we see objects repeating in the Universe?
    13:17 [Kamino] What lies beyond the observable universe?
    15:54 [Bespin] Could an asteroid push the Earth into the Sun?
    18:45 [Mustafar] Are dust storms a threat to Mars settlers?
    21:14 [Alderaan] Could a solar gravitational lens help detect technological civilizations?
    23:06 [Dagobah] Would an asteroid strike on another planet be a risk to Earth?
    23:59 [Yavin] Could the moon of a gas giant be habitable?
    25:32 [Mandalore] What do I think about NASA's UAP study?
    29:04 [Geonosis] Could you create an artificial meteor storm?
    30:22 [Corellia] Where would I like to go in the Milky Way?
    33:04 [Crait] Could Hubble look at JWST?
    33:46 [Endor] Is anyone working on construction equipment for the Moon?
    34:57 [Exegol] Are there aliens on the back side of the Moon?
    37:50 [Jedha] What would we learn from a comet sample return mission?
