This month, Mark talks with John Baunach, a modeler and teacher of ninth-grade physics. He talks about his career journey as well as the ways that modeling changed his teaching. They talk about computational modeling in physics first using code to help students understand mechanics. They also talk about the flow of courses at John's school and the newest modeling workshop, modeling astronomy. Finally, they talk about tips for new modelers and advice to all teachers. Guest Bio John Baunach John has been teaching for nearly a decade, in public, private, and parochial high schools (and briefly in a university setting). He was born and raised in Louisville, KY, before attending Vanderbilt for his Bachelor's in Physics and Astronomy. He taught briefly after graduation at a local public high school, before returning for a Master's in Physics, where he was blessed to volunteer at NASA's Langley Research Center while finishing his thesis on space radiation protection modeling. He returned to education in the Nashville area, and in 2014 he attended a modeling workshop at Western Kentucky University, which had a career-changing impact on his teaching philosophy. He worked for three years at a school with a Physics First curriculum and Modeling Instruction integrated at all levels of science. He currently teaches Physics (9th Grade) and Statistics at Doane Academy, an independent K-12 day school in Burlington, NJ, just north of Philadelphia, where he is also the Science Department Chair and Director of Technology. He has led modeling workshops since 2020. https://twitter.com/JohnBaunach (Twitter) | https://instagram.com/johnbaunach (Instagram) | http://www.workingtheproblem.org (Website) Highlights [13:13] John Baunach, on why computational modeling helps students to learn: "what I find is most important is that it changes how students see math and its relationship to physics. Because oftentimes we go from motion maps to graphs and then jump from graphs and kind of derive the equations of motion from a graph. And I find coding is another nice half step between that point. And it is a different way... it lets us look at the world in one more different way and one more useful way."

We give a brief outline of the almost 3000 years of the ancient Egyptian timeline as currently understood by standard model archaeology. Dynasties, Periods, Kingdoms, what they are, when they occurred, how long they lasted. Hopefully this will help a bit when you read or hear things like "in the 19th dynasty" or "this is an Old Kingdom structure". Much thanks to listener Patty for suggesting we do this.After that, Kyle reads selections from Petrie's The Pyramids and Temples of Gizeh, specifically parts where Petrie is discussing his research on evidence for "anomalous" stone cutting evident on some artifacts from Egypt.We also tested our ability to stream the recording of this episode live to Twitch.

We think, therefore we are confused. What exactly is vacuum energy? To paraphrase various physicists and science communicators over the last few decades – anyone who thinks that a vacuum is nothing, just doesn't get it. So what do you make of Massive Gravity?

He does this through stacking data cubes of these galaxies. This clever new technique will be applied to some of the MeerKAT radio telescope data.   Growing up in the Karoo, Andrew had the pleasure of experiencing the beautiful Southern night sky. With this experience, Andy not only fell in love with the stars from afar, but also believes that astronomy is one of the avenues of understanding the universe and our origins at large.   We've added a new way to donate to 365 Days of Astronomy to support editing, hosting, and production costs.  Just visit: https://www.patreon.com/365DaysOfAstronomy and donate as much as you can!

Fred Williams is joined by Daniel Hedrick, founder of the GodIsNowHere ministry, to tackle the question of time. Einstein's general theory of relativity claims that gravity affects both space and time, such that the stronger the gravity, the slower that time moves. Or conversely, time speeds up as gravity becomes weaker, hence time passes faster for our heads than our feet! At RSR we believe that time is absolute, not relative, and the gravity affects CLOCKS, not time itself. Fred & Daniel review the evidence for and against general relativity, including the “big elephant in the room”, quantum mechanics, which holds that time is universal and absolute. As an example, you can make two quantum particles interact, then put them at opposite ends of the universe, measure one, and instantaneously the other particle takes on a corresponding quality! Finally, if gravity dilates as a result of volume contraction, time and mass remain the same – a second is always a second (Bandula Dahanayake, Universal Relativity: Absolute Time and Mass, International Journal of Astrophysics and Space Science. Vol. 3, No. 1, 2015, pp. 7-15). Sponsor a Show! Click here to help keep us broadcasting! (We really need it :) We have now officially begun our November 2021 telethon! We typically set a dollar goal, like 30 or 40 thousand. But this time, we're looking for 20 new monthly donors who will sponsor one show a month. Being on air isn't cheap. We run about 20 broadcasts and it costs us about $150 dollars per show. We operate on a shoestring budget, so in the past we've relied heavily on those large donations and big dollar telethons. But that was when Bob was here. Now the ministry has less security, and that makes promoting Bob's teaching a daunting task. So if just you and 19 others can help us guarantee that the show goes on, Bob's Biblically centered teachings will go out to thousands more. The ministries of so many Godly leaders, authors & preachers have been magnified tenfold, or even a hundredfold after their passing. Think of C.S. Lewis, and how he still, today, has such an impact on millions. We have no doubt Bob could have a similar impact, and your sponsorship of just one show a month will be a massive force to magnify this ministry, and the Gospel.

Ian is an astronomer and astrophotographer with a passion for public speaking and sharing the wonders of the night sky with the public. He has worked with telescope manufacturers and retailers around the world to building telescope systems for private and professional observatories, astrophotographers, government projects and educational institutions.   Ian has a knack for making people laugh and he incorporates this skill into transforming what can often be dry and dull science topics into fun and exciting concepts. Whether he's speaking in front of thousands of people or one-on-one, Ian's passion and energy always shines through regardless of the delivery medium, be it podcasts, stage talks, or TV shows.   In addition to astronomy, Ian's other passions include backpacking, camping, and particularly metal music. According to Ian: "I've spent decades attending live metal music events, always in search of up and coming musical artists. I have and will continue to support and promote artists from the metal scene, both big and small. The joy of discovery knows no boundaries, and music is no exception."   You can learn more about Ian and how to register for his astrophotography workshops by visiting his website: https://ianlauerastro.com/  Regular Guests: Dr. Morgan Rehnberg ( http://www.morganrehnberg.com/ & @MorganRehnberg ) Pam Hoffman ( http://spacer.pamhoffman.com/ & http://everydayspacer.com/ & @EverydaySpacer ) This week's stories: - JWST has an “incident”… - All the cool stuff you can see in space!

In 1933 Fritz Zwicky suggested that the high speeds of galaxies in the relatively distant Coma Cluster are indicative of some type of invisible material which is pulling on them. In the 1970's Dr. Vera Rubin began to measure the speeds of stars in galaxies using the Doppler shift. She expected stars orbiting at different distances from the centers of spiral galaxies to behave like the planets in our solar system since for these giant star systems the luminous mass that we observe is concentrated towards their centers.  To her amazement the stars near the edge of the great galaxy in Andromeda and many other spiral galaxies are moving at speeds which indicate that these galaxies contain ten times the amount of mass that emits radiation which is visible to us. It was at this point that Dr. Rubin realized that she had discovered compelling evidence to support Zwicky's dark matter hypothesis.

Dillon was the lead investigator in a study that determined that a bright radio flare discovered in data collected by the Very Large Array (VLA) Sky Survey in 2017 was the result of a black hole or neutron star crashing into its companion star in a never-before-seen process.   You can learn more about this study and its surprising results here: https://www.caltech.edu/about/news/a-...   Dillon Dong is a final year graduate student working on finding and characterizing astronomical sources that appear and disappear on human timescales. For his Ph.D. thesis, he cataloged 1.5 million radio sources in the largest high-resolution radio sky survey to date: the Very Large Array Sky Survey. By looking for sources that were not detected (but should have been) in historical observations, he discovered  more than 1000 sources that have newly appeared in the radio sky. One of these sources was a never-before-seen type of supernova, caused by the merger of a black hole or neutron star with its massive star companion. This explosion was published in the journal Science, and received press coverage in 40+ countries.   You can learn more about Dillon and his research on his website: https://dillon-z-dong.github.io/ Regular Guests: Dr. Alex Teachey ( https://alexteachey.wordpress.com/ & @alexteachey ) Dr. Moiya McTier ( https://www.moiyamctier.com/ & @GoAstroMo ) Chris Carr ( @therealccarr ) This week's stories: - Looking for Planet 9 in older data. - Earth's lower atmosphere is expanding. - A diamond hauled from deep inside the Earth. - What is snuffing out galaxies before their time?   We've added a new way to donate to 365 Days of Astronomy to support editing, hosting, and production costs.  Just visit: https://www.patreon.com/365DaysOfAstronomy and donate as much as you can!

The 365 Days of Astronomy, the daily podcast of the International Year of Astronomy 2009

Paul Hill, Ralph Wilkins and Dr. Jenifer “Dr. Dust” Millard host. Damien Phillips, John Wildridge and Dustin Ruoff produce. The Discussion:  Jen as a space expert on BBC1's The Breakfast Show. AweAst on YouTube is coming! Head over and help us out by subscribing here. An email on the less than stellar working conditions at Blue Origin.   The News: The results of Astro2020 - the next decadal survey from the US National Academies of Sciences. NASA's moon programme officially slips back a year. SpaceX's 3rd crewed launch to the International Space Station. Heinz goes all ‘Mark Watney' with tomatoes.   The news discussion: Commercial plans to build TWO space stations before 2030.   Nebulas: (Our new show segment replacing the concluded moons of the solar system.) This month we're turning our attention to the weird and wonderful nebulae that you can see through telescopes or use to understand the interstellar medium and star formation. In the coming months we'll delve into each type of nebula.   Q&A: How many journeys would it take for all space tourists' ejected faeces to coalesce into a single stool of such mass that its gravity would turn it to a rock of a size that posed enough of a threat to existence that an asteroid redirect-type intervention would be required? From our good friend Andrew Osborne in the UK.   www.awesomeastronomy.com   Bio: Awesome Astronomy is a podcast beamed direct from an underground bunker on Mars to promote science, space and astronomy (and enslave Earth if all goes well).   We've added a new way to donate to 365 Days of Astronomy to support editing, hosting, and production costs.  Just visit: https://www.patreon.com/365DaysOfAstronomy and donate as much as you can!

Life nearby? We've not yet found any on our favorite planet, Mars. But even if Mars is sterile, could we ever change that by terraforming it? Or seeding it with life from Earth? The Red Planet is not the only game in town: A new NASA mission to a Jovian moon may give clues to biology on a world where, unlike Mars, liquid water still exists. Also, the promise of the James Webb Space Telescope and why the solar system's largest active volcano offers clues to the habitability of other worlds.
