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.
 
宇宙開発で培われた技術が私たちの日々の生活にどのように生かされていくのか、何のために科学衛星や探査機を打ち上げているのかなど、JAXAの活動の目的や成果を分かりやすくお伝えします。 KBCラジオで毎週土曜日8:20~8:30に放送中!!(2012/1/28~3/31)

Jake and Anthony are joined by Eric Berger of Ars Technica to talk about the space policy fallout of the 2020 US election, Eric’s upcoming book, and Jake’s bad decisions. Drinks Shiner Berliner Weisse - Spoetzl Brewery - Untappd Olde English 800 - Miller Brewing Company - Untappd Orbital Tilt IPA (Galaxy) - Captain Lawrence Brewing Company - Untapp…
 
The brightest kilonova ever was detected and challenges current gamma-ray burst models. Plus, the history of water on both Venus and Mars, how radioactive elements may help habitability, and a little-known mass extinction event here on Earth. But wait! There’s more… new images of the Perseus Cluster, a recaptured 1960s rocket booster, the shortest …
 
We’re back! Today we’re bringing you all the latest news, from a fast radio burst in our galaxy to the first brown dwarf discovered using radio telescopes. And telescopes are the hot topic today: using them, renaming them, and sadly, breaking them. Plus the Atacama Desert and Martian life, Europa’s glow, and a roundup of recent planetary science st…
 
Today’s top story brings us 39 new gravitational wave detections of black holes and neutron stars, courtesy of the LIGO and VIRGO detectors. Also, it’s Titan’s turn for interesting molecules in the atmosphere, and researchers examined impact craters to see what might lie beneath Titan’s surface. Plus, Hayabusa2’s impact on Ryugu and an updated orig…
 
In our new format, we bring you a mix of stories. First, an update on the Bennu sampling situation. Next, the top stories, where NASA has reported that the SOFIA airborne telescope found water in a sunlit crater on the Moon, and another team has found water ice reservoirs. Plus, the search for Planet Nine, studying asteroid Psyche 16, and the magne…
 
Jake and Anthony are joined by Caleb Henry, formerly of SpaceNews and now of Quilty Analytics. We talk about SpaceX’s new satellite contract, OneWeb’s new lease on life, Caleb’s new gig at Quilty, and what it’s like transitioning away from capital-J journalism. Drinks Perpetual IPA - Tröegs Independent Brewing - Untappd Peppercorn Saison - 3 Stars …
 
New radio images from the ALMA telescope show the direct effects of Io’s volcanism on its atmosphere. Plus, we’ll take a look at the next NASA missions to small bodies that we have to look forward to now that OSIRIS-REx has completed the first touch-and-go sample. And you should smile and wave up at the sky because there are exoplanets that could s…
 
Of course, our top story today is the touch-and-go sampling event on our favorite asteroid-to-hate, Bennu. OSIRIS-REx’s TAGSAM worked as expected, and now we’re waiting for the mass measurement of the sample taken. Plus, the Milky Way’s black hole is spinning too slowly to make jets, and the galaxy’s history can be found in atomic hydrogen filament…
 
All of Betelguese’s strange behavior over the last year had everyone looking at the star, which the latest research shows is smaller and closer than previously calculated. Plus, InSight’s mole is finally all the way underground, new measurements of atomic hydrogen in distant galaxies, and two planets have been discovered around a red dwarf star.…
 
Today we look at three astronomical stories! First, simulations show that rocky Super-Earth sized exoplanets have a Jupiter-sized guardian. Then a study of over 700 quasars shows they form because of… magnetic fields, of course! And finally, spare observation time leads to the discovery of a metal-poor globular cluster near the Andromeda Galaxy.…
 
Join us for a look at today’s top story: ESO telescopes captured the last moments of a star being destroyed by a black hole in a tidal disruption event. Plus scientists are studying Bennu’s surface to get ready for next week’s touch and go sample collection, and NOIRLab begins the process of restarting telescope operations at several observatories …
 
Join us as we take a look back two weeks’ worth of planetary stories, including solar system research on a binary trans-Neptunian object, diamonds in meteorites, the stratification of Titan’s lakes, and how Jupiter affected Venus’ habitability. Plus we go farther into space and see how super flares affect the chances for life on exoplanets and find…
 
Join us for a first-ever double feature episode. Dr. Pamela and Beth will go cover the latest in astronomy and planetary science, from a glittery supermassive black hole to a jittery gravitational wave detector, and from life on Mars to the chronology of Saturn’s largest moons. For fun, we listen to the sonification of Chandra X-ray images, and, be…
 
Astrophysicists have finally figured out how to tell neutron stars apart from black holes by finding the signature of the event horizon. Another team discovered that planetary nebulae likely get their unique shapes due to binary systems. And we present some updates on the origin of rocks (and rocks and rocks and pebbles) on Bennu. Same with Ryugu, …
 
With Anthony off on parental leave, Jake is joined by guest host Emilee Speck and guests Anna and Henna from But It Is Rocket Science to talk about making space podcasts and Life on Venus?! Drinks Outer Planet Brewing - Sullivan 626 Saison (Untappd) Blue Tea (Wikipedia) Playalinda Brewery - Robonaut Red Ale (Untappd) Granville Island Brewing - Over…
 
While Venus has dominated the news cycle this week, scientists were publishing papers on other planets, both within our solar system and without. We look at a warm Jupiter orbiting a cool star, the composition of Uranus’ moons (save your jokes for the Q&A), and how life may be hard to detect on Mars. Plus Hubble has released a brand new image of Ju…
 
Join us as we take a look at today's top story - a planet has been found still in orbit around its white dwarf star even after a supernova. Then we discuss how a Wolf-Rayet binary system is a dust factory. Finally, new works show neutron stars are NOT producing all those heavy elements, the solar minimum is over, and Breakthrough Listen is all over…
 
Join us today as we examine major news coming out last week from institutions analyzing data from the LIGO and Virgo gravitational wave detectors: the largest and farthest collision detected yet has led to the discovery of an “impossible” black hole. Plus a triple-star system has planetary rings and the camera that will be at the heart of the Vera …
 
Join us today as we look at how fractures on Europa’s surface are leading scientists to reevaluate the geologic past of the Jovian moon. Speaking of Jovian moons, Sweden has finished an instrument for the JUICE mission that will measure electromagnetic fields and map the oceans of Ganymede. And finally, Comet NEOWISE continues to make headlines wit…
 
Join us today for a lot of unsatisfying news. First, two objects appear to be pulsing in gamma-rays at the same pace, but they’re 100 light-years apart. Next, it turns out that stars with planets look chemically like any other star. And finally, our interstellar visitor, ‘Oumuamua, is NOT made of molecular hydrogen ice.…
 
Jake and Anthony are joined by Loren Grush to catch up on a wild few weeks—from VR tours of spaceships, the Doug Loverro situation, Mars mayhem, Starship hops, and of course, the DM-2 boating fiasco. Drinks Rotary Chaos - Ten Bends Beer - Untappd Jai Alai - Cigar City Brewing - Untappd Original Dry Cider - Austin Eastciders - Untappd APRICOT WILD A…
 
Join us today as we take another look at the dimming antics of Betelgeuse, which is up to those old tricks again. Research from Hubble helped understand last winter’s event. And Ganymede is covered with one massive crater as a result of a giant impact four billion years ago.
