https://youtu.be/eqT3j2LIpoY Host: Fraser Cain ( @fcain )Special Guest: Astronomers recently announced that, with the help of the ESO VLT, they had observed a new type of small — yet powerful — stellar explosion: a Micronova. The study, which was published in "Nature" on April 20 [https://www.eso.org/public/news/eso22...], was led by Dr. Simone Scaringi, astronomer at Durham University in the UK. We are pleased to welcome Simone to tonight's WSH to tell us more about this exciting discovery.   Simone earned his undergraduate BSc in Mathematics with Astronomy at the University of Southampton, after which he obtained both a M.Phil and PhD also from Southampton in the Astronomy group (2010). He spent the next two years at Radboud University Nijmegen, Netherlands, as a postdoctoral fellow before moving to KU Leuven, Belgium, in 2012 with a FWO Pegasus Marie Curie fellowship. In 2015 Simone joined the Max-Planck-Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics in Garching, Germany where he held a Humboldt fellowship.   In 2017 Simone was appointed lecturer at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand, and in 2018 he moved to the United States as an Assistant Professor at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, USA. Since 2020 he has been an Assistant Professor in the Centre for Extragalactic Astronomy at Durham University.   Simone's primary research interests are accretion physics across the scales, compact objects, time-series analysis, machine learning, and Galactic photometric surveys.   You can learn more about Simone and his research by visiting his faculty website at Durham University [https://www.durham.ac.uk/staff/simone...] as well as his personal website [http://www.astro.dur.ac.uk/~simo/].   You can also follow him on Facebook [https://www.facebook.com/frozensimo] as well as Twitter [https://twitter.com/AstroSimo], although he admits to rarely using Twitter! Regular Guests: Dr. Morgan Rehnberg ( http://www.morganrehnberg.com/ & @MorganRehnberg ) Dr. Leah Jenks ( https://leahjenks.com/ / @leahgjenks ) C.C. Petersen ( http://thespacewriter.com/wp/ & @AstroUniverse & @SpaceWriter ) This week's stories: - A new Hubble competitor from China. - Perseverance lost contact with Ingenuity! - What will the EHT be announcing? - What you can do with lunar soil. - CO2 frost avalanches on Mars.   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 flash of a pulsar about 3,000 light-years from our solar system was caused by a ‘black widow' binary consuming a smaller star. Intriguingly, a third companion star is orbiting the pair, which may have originated near the Milky Way's center.

This is a question posed back in the 1970s as the Gaia hypothesis, and it got its share of criticism. Some new ideas have been proposed to bring this hypothesis to the modern era as we search for exoplanets.   Link to Dr. Funkyspoon's talk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rlKyfDFQk3A   Peter Ward's Life as We Do Not Know It: https://www.amazon.com/Life-We-Not-Know-Synthesis/dp/0143038494   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!

Weekly Space Hangout

If you are a long-time viewer of the Weekly Space Hangout, then Dr. Paul Sutter is no stranger to you at all. For several years, he was one of our on-air journalists (along with Dr. Kimberly Cartier and Dr. Morgan Rehnberg.) Since leaving the WSH fold, Paul has continued to be one of the busiest people around. Tonight we are excited to welcome Paul back to the show (even if it is for only one night) so he can bring us all up to date with everything he has been doing - as well as hopefully share a few exciting things he has planned. But first, let me share some of the highlights. In addition to being the author of two books (with a third in the works that is due in 2023,) Paul regularly writes articles for Space.com, Ars Technica, Nautilus, Undark, Live Science, and many more , with his articles syndicating to news outlets worldwide. When he isn't writing new content for publication everywhere, Paul hosts numerous science shows across all platforms, including "How the Universe Works" on Science Channel, "Space Out" on Discovery, and "Edge of Knowledge" on Ars Technica. And who can forget that he writes and hosts his "Ask a Spaceman" podcast, which is one of the top podcasts in the world! Oh - and if that isn't enough - did I mention Paul has been traveling extensively through his collaboration with Syren Modern Dance. "Ticktock" is a stage experience exploring the nature of time through a woven performance of narration, music, and movement. And this year he joined Syren as a U.S. Cultural Ambassador to the World Expo in Dubai! But perhaps the most exciting news is that in December 2021 Paul and Kate St. Amand, co-artistic director of Syren Modern Dance (and the real brains behind "Ticktock") became engaged!!!! CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU BOTH!!! Paul earned his PhD in physics in 2011 as a Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellow at the University of Illinois. He then spent three years as a research fellow at the Paris Institute for Astrophysics followed by two years at the Trieste Observatory in Italy. Paul currently holds a research professorship at the Institute for Advanced Computational Science at Stony Brook University and a guest researcher position at the Flatiron Institute in New York City. Previously he held a joint position as the chief scientist at the Center of Science and Industry in Columbus, Ohio, and as a cosmological researcher at the Ohio State University. You can learn more about Paul by visiting his website and be sure to follow him on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. And don't forget to subscribe to his Ask a Spaceman podcast! **************************************** The Weekly Space Hangout is a production of CosmoQuest. Want to support CosmoQuest?

https://youtu.be/DYR0imBB4KI Host: Fraser Cain ( @fcain )Special Guest: If you are a long-time viewer of the Weekly Space Hangout, then Dr. Paul Matt Sutter ( http://www.pmsutter.com/ & @PaulMattSutter ) is no stranger to you at all. For several years, he was one of our on-air journalists (along with Dr. Kimberly Cartier and Dr. Morgan Rehnberg.) Since leaving the WSH fold, Paul has continued to be one of the busiest people around. Tonight we are excited to welcome Paul back to the show (even if it is for only one night) so he can bring us all up to date with everything he has been doing - as well as hopefully share a few exciting things he has planned.   But first, let me share some of the highlights.    In addition to being the author of two books (with a third in the works that is due in 2023,) Paul regularly writes articles for Space.com, Ars Technica, Nautilus, Undark, Live Science, and many more , with his articles syndicating to news outlets worldwide.   When he isn't writing new content for publication everywhere, Paul hosts numerous science shows across all platforms, including "How the Universe Works" on Science Channel, "Space Out" on Discovery, and "Edge of Knowledge" on Ars Technica. And who can forget that he writes and hosts his "Ask a Spaceman" podcast, which is one of the top podcasts in the world!   Oh - and if that isn't enough - did I mention Paul has been traveling extensively through his collaboration with Syren Modern Dance. "Ticktock" is a stage experience exploring the nature of time through a woven performance of narration, music, and movement. And this year he joined Syren as a U.S. Cultural Ambassador to the World Expo in Dubai!   But perhaps the most exciting news is that in December 2021 Paul and Kate St. Amand, co-artistic director of Syren Modern Dance (and the real brains behind "Ticktock") became engaged!!!! CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU BOTH!!!   Paul earned his PhD in physics in 2011 as a Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellow at the University of Illinois. He then spent three years as a research fellow at the Paris Institute for Astrophysics followed by two years at the Trieste Observatory in Italy.   Paul currently holds a research professorship at the Institute for Advanced Computational Science at Stony Brook University and a guest researcher position at the Flatiron Institute in New York City. Previously he held a joint position as the chief scientist at the Center of Science and Industry in Columbus, Ohio, and as a cosmological researcher at the Ohio State University.    You can learn more about Paul by visiting his website (https://www.pmsutter.com/) and be sure to follow him on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/paulmattsutter), Twitter (https://twitter.com/PaulMattSutter), and YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/c/PaulMSutter). And don't forget to subscribe to his Ask a Spaceman podcast! Regular Guests: Dr. Nick Castle ( @PlanetaryGeoDoc / https://wanderingsci.com/ )  Allen Versfeld ( http://www.urban-astronomer.com & @uastronomer ) Dave Dickinson ( http://astroguyz.com/ & @Astroguyz ) This week's stories: - 8 missions got extensions, including OSIRIS-REx! - A new type of stellar explosion! - The oldest account of aurorae. - More updates on the Decadal Survey.   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!

If the Big Bang happened 13.8 billion years ago how come we can still see it?  What we can see is the cosmic microwave background, the CMB, which was a flash of light that actually occurred about 380,000 years after the Big Bang.   How can we observe things that are receding from us at faster than the speed of light?  So, as is well understood by regular Cheap Astronomy listeners – and probably other astronomy podcast listeners, the Universe's expansion has an additive effect over distance.   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!

Our very own Jacinta has a new paper out and takes her turn in the hot seat to tell us all about it!   Along with her colleagues, she has been part of the discovery of two giant radio galaxies using South Africa's powerful MeerKAT telescope.   These galaxies are amongst the largest single objects in the Universe and are thought to be quite rare. The fact that MeerKAT detected two of these monsters in a relatively small patch of the sky suggests that giant radio galaxies may actually be much more common than previously thought.   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!

Tonight we are very excited to welcome Amber Dubill from the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory to the WSH. Amber has worked on both IMAP and DART, and also has a keen interest in advanced solar sail design concepts. Solar sails have long been theorized as being a viable means of spacecraft propulsion — eventually — and we do seem to be moving closer to their being a reality… In June 2019, the Planetary Society succesfully launched their crowdfunded, proof-of-concept LightSail 2, and it is still going strong! In fact, you can check on its current status here. Meanwhile, in Rochester NY, Dr. Grover Swartzlander from Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) was developing a new approach to solar sail design - one that could potentially allow spacecraft to photograph the poles of the sun for the first time! In April 2019 RIT and Dr. Swartzlander were awarded a 2019 NIAC Phase 2 award to explore the feasibility of diffractive solar sails! As a mechanical engineering student at RIT, Amber worked closely with Dr. Swartzlander on the diffractive solar sail design, and their collaboration continues today. Amber started her experience on low cost, high risk CubeSats space at RIT as a student and at NASA Langley Research Center (LaRC). This evolved into research on advanced technology concepts for spacecraft. She has developed expertise in the use of solar sailing, and has become a champion for diffractive solar sailing through collaboration on NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts. She continues working to further develop diffractive solar sailing technology: a new type of massless, infinite propulsion, that will enable spacecraft to sail around our Sun and view it like never before. To stay up to date with Amber's research, follow her on LinkedIn as well as on Facebook. You can learn more about Amber's and Dr. Swartzlander's collaboration in this podcast.

Justin is a PI of the International Space Station Archaeological Project (ISSAP) [https://issarchaeology.org/], the first large-scale space archaeology project. Initiated in 2015, the archaeological study of a space habitat — specifically the ISS — is aimed at understanding the "evolving cultural, social, and material structures in the ISS's unique context."   Justin is an archaeologist who researches and teaches Mediterranean art and archaeology at Chapman University in Irvine, CA. He is listed in the Register of Professional Archaeologists and has worked on excavations around the world. His other areas of interest include studying problems related to cultural heritage management, especially including the emerging field of space archaeology which led him, together with his co-PI Dr. Alice Gorman from Flinders University, to develop the first large-scale archaeological investigation of a human habitation site in space.   To learn more about ISSAP visit the project's website: https://issarchaeology.org/   You can stay up to date with ISSAP by following them on Twitter (https://twitter.com/issarchaeology) and Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/ISSarchaeology)   To learn more about Justin and his other archaeological research, visit https://www.chapman.edu/our-faculty/j....
