Transmission is a distributed mixed reality podcast and performance series premiering in Edinburgh in 2017. This companion Podcast speculates on the possibility of life on Proxima b - the closest planet outside of our solar system that has the potential to support life - and whether civilizations like our own could live there. What if we received their television and radio broadcasts? How would we listen in? Could we translate them? How could we communicate back? Hosted by Cecilia Lynn Jacob ...

https://youtu.be/GRftqiXvwWg So when you think about the world's observatories, I'm sure you're imagining huge telescopes perched atop mountain peaks or space telescopes like Hubble. But you might be surprised to learn that some telescopes are carried high into the atmosphere on board balloons. What can they accomplish? We've added a new way to don…
 
Last week we talked about how new telescopes and techniques are allowing astronomers to explore the shortest wavelengths of light.

Nothing lasts forever. Even the universe has several possible endings. Will there be a dramatic Big Rip or a Big Chill­–also known as the heat death of the universe–in trillions of years? Or will vacuum decay, which could theoretically happen at any moment, do us in? Perhaps the death of a tiny particle – the proton – will bring about the end. We c…

The Earth is not round. Technically, it’s an oblate spheroid. But for some people, the first statement is not even approximately correct. Flat Earthers believe that our planet resembles – not a slightly squashed grapefruit – but a thick pancake.
