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.
 
Join us today as we share some mission updates, good and bad. The bad: Arecibo Observatory suffered damage from a snapped cable. The good: OSIRIS-Rex performed a final dress rehearsal for taking a sample of Bennu and NASA’s TESS finished its primary mission. Plus, we’re joined by postdoc Kynan Hughson to talk about this week’s Ceres news!…
 
Join us today for news about the evolution of stellar eggs. Additionally, Hubble takes advantage of a lunar eclipse to probe our atmosphere. Then we celebrate Arecibo reopening after Hurricane Isaias and doing more science. Plus it’s time for the Persieds!
 
Join us today for a trio of solar system stories! First, shallow lightning and mushballs in Jupiter’s atmosphere help find “missing” ammonia. Next, a massive planetary wave in Venus’ atmosphere goes back at least 35 years. Finally, InSight’s seismograph provides the first direct measurement of subsurface boundaries.…
 
Join us today as we talk about newly released research that suggests the waters on ancient Mars were subglacial and not free-flowing. Also, a black hole goes dormant and star formation goes wild. Meanwhile, computer models show that unequal neutron stars colliding may cause a big “bang” that can be detected on Earth.…
 
Join us today as we look at how quantum mechanics and Einstein’s theory of general relativity work together in white dwarfs. Machine learning is used to find a galaxy with an extremely low abundance of oxygen. Scientists find signs of a neutron star in supernova 1987A. And researchers managed to locate two recently arrived meteorites in Australia w…
 
Join us today as we go back in time and examine what caused Earth to become a snowball… more than once. We also take a look at a dismembered globular cluster found at the edge of the Milky Way. And finally, Dr. Pamela gets to explain loop quantum cosmology. Wish her luck!
 
Join us today while we take a look at the final data set released by the RAVE spectroscopic survey of stars in the southern hemisphere. Also, scientists at Harvard’s CfA have characterized the “central engine” of a solar flare from our Sun. And finally, scientists in Europe observed a parent cloud feeding material to a pair of young stars.…
 
Jake and Anthony are joined by Lord British himself, Richard Garriott de Cayeux. Richard is a storied video game designer/developer, an entrepreneur, an astronaut who flew to the ISS for a week, and an adventurer with so many tales it’s hard to keep up. Richard is also the son of Owen Garriott, a NASA astronaut who flew on Skylab II and STS-9. Rich…
