    24: No Dark Matter & Earth Day . The Skies Above with Diane A. Curran

    24: No Dark Matter & Earth Day . The Skies Above with Diane A. Curran

    In this episode, we celebrate the announcement of a new galactic discovery on Earth Day 2019.
    A Wow! confirmed...
    "We thought that every galaxy had dark matter and that dark matter is how a galaxy begins," said Pieter van Dokkum of Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut, lead researcher of the Hubble observations. "This invisible, mysterious substance is the most dominant aspect of any galaxy. So finding a galaxy without it is unexpected. It challenges the standard ideas of how we think galaxies work, and it shows that dark matter is real: it has its own separate existence apart from other components of galaxies. This result also suggests that there may be more than one way to form a galaxy.”
    Finding one such galaxy, known as “NGC 1052-DF2” is quite amazing. Yet today, the news is peppered with confirmations that a second such galaxy
    “DF4” has now been sufficiently studied to credibly deem it to have no dark matter, too.
    How might this matter to us here on Earth, as we celebrate the 50th Earth Day across the planet? We're here to chat and consider more than just one day's concerns.

    About Earth Day
    About this series:
    Humanity has always turned its gaze upward, and as our technology gets exponentially more sophisticated, we are still mesmerized by the The Skies Above. Our attention spans mythology to modern times, and space travel, both physical and virtual in the here and now; at once rich in symbolism, while teeming with yet undiscovered scientific data that beckons us onward.
    Your Wow Whispering host Diane has been fascinated since childhood with all things skyward, as we expand our podcast series to The Skies Above.
    In this series we honor two traditions which were originally united as one: Astrology and Astronomy. Both derive purpose from seeking to understand the nature of life through explorations beyond Earth. From symbolism to science, mythology to modernity, humanity wants to know more, ever more, about our place in the cosmos.

    23: Black Hole M37 Pioneering . The Skies Above with Diane A. Curran

    23: Black Hole M37 Pioneering . The Skies Above with Diane A. Curran

    In this episode, we celebrate the first ever photo of a Black Hole, M87 by name, newly published on April 10, 2017.
    Wow!!! This feat took 8 radio telescopes, over 200 researchers, more than 10 years and some super precise atomic clocks were all it took to produce this first ever image of poetically named massive black hole M87. Released today after 2 years of processing and studying the data on what is 3 millions times Earth's size and 500 million trillion km away from us.
    But what does it mean to see an iconic image for the first time? We're here to chat about this.
    CNN report link.
    BBC report link.
    Kudos to Dr. Bouman. Indeed, that's Dr. Katie Bouman who created this pioneering image. “Take your rightful seat in history, Dr. Bouman,” the congresswoman (AO-C) tweeted. ”Congratulations and thank you for your enormous contribution to the advancements of science and mankind.”

Fabulous host

Diane does an amazing job hosting and interviewing guests on her show. She made it easy for me as a guest by asking wonderful open-ended questions in her upbeat manner. I enjoyed the experience and hope people get a lot out of the program. Thank you, Diane!
