https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=253DbqwGdH8 [Sorry for the continued audio dropouts, but just wait! Soon Fraser'll have fiber at his house and this will all be a thing of the past! - Rich] Streamed live on Oct 26, 2022. Host: Fraser Cain ( @fcain )Special Guest: As we discover new exoplanets on an almost daily basis - particularly now that JWST is online - scientists are ramping up their research into identifying those planets that may exhibit traces of life (as we know it.) Scientists use spectrographs to examine the composition of these exoplanet atmospheres looking markers called technosignatures - trace elements that may be indicative of life. What constitutes a technosignature? Does the presence of one or more technosignatures mean that an exoplanet is a strong candidate for hosting life? Can atmospheric markers not included in our current list of technosignatures still be indicative of life, just not as we know it? This week, we welcome Dr. Sofia Sheikh from the SETI Institute (https://www.seti.org/) to discuss how the ATA is playing an instrumental role in this research.   Dr. Sofia Z. Sheikh is a radio astronomer and astrobiologist working at the SETI Institute. She obtained her undergraduate degrees in physics and astronomy at UC Berkeley, and has recently returned to the Bay Area with an NSF-ASCEND Postdoctoral Fellowship after getting her PhD in Astronomy and Astrobiology at Penn State. Currently, she is performing SETI searches and studying pulsars and fast radio bursts with the Allen Telescope Array, a 42-dish radio array located in Hat Creek, California. Be sure to follow her on Twitter: @SETISheikh   You can learn more about the Allen Telescope Array (ATA) by visiting their website: https://www.seti.org/seti-allen-teles... Regular Guests: C.C.

Weekly Space Hangout

Since its final commissioning and being placed in service, JWST has been delivering on its promise to provide unprecedented insight into the most distant — and oldest — regions of our Universe. Whether it's providing a new view of our nearby neighbor Jupiter, or sussing out never-before-seen details of the iconic Eagle Nebula and its Pillars of Creation, let's face it - the imagery so far has been nothing less than stunning! But more importantly, the data being collected by JWST's onboard instrumentation are allowing scientists the ability to peer back in time to study the oldest cosmic structures while they are still in their infancy, potentially unlocking never-before understood processes that have led to the Universe as we know it today. This week we are joined by Dr. Andrey Vayner, a member of a multinational team led by Dominika Wylezalek of Heidelberg University (Germany) that has been studying SDSS J165202.64+172852.3, an “extremely red” QUASAR that dates back to the earliest days of the Universe, some 11.5 billion years ago. Using data collected by NIRSpec, JWST's near infrared spectrograph (https://webb.nasa.gov/content/observatory/instruments/nirspec.html), the team has been able to confirm the presence of not just one, but three, companion galaxies of the QUASAR that are actively in the process of merging. Andrey is a Postdoctoral Fellow at Johns Hopkins University Physics and Astronomy Department. He obtained his Ph.D. from UC San Diego in 2019. He studies how galaxies and supermassive black holes evolve over cosmic time using advanced ground and space-based telescopes. His current focus is on early-release science observations with JWST, studying the most powerful active galactic nuclei that are heavily obscured by dust.

The quest to understand the formation mechanisms of globular clusters was limited by the Hubble Space Telescope's ability to peer back in time. Now, JWST's larger mirror has allowed astronomers to find gravitationally lensed galaxies that have globular clusters almost nine billion years old.

After the last thoroughly depressing episode of TMP, the dorks return with something hopefully more upbeat. We're talking about hobbies, and how we engage with them! We'll discuss the levels of engagement one can have with a given hobby, like Magic or Star Wars. We'll cover ways to disengage with a hobby when it becomes necessary or wanted. We'll talk about gatekeeping, which is the dark side of fandom. All this is peppered with our usual personal experiences, tangents, and assorted nonsense of course. I know we missed some aspects of hobbies, but I think we covered the side of things we wanted to. Be sure to let us know about the ways you engage with your hobbies!

That is because this week's special guest is Phil the Caribbean Skeptic. He is joined by August, and first time conductor (as far as you know) R Kelley Laughlin. So break out the rum (responsibly) and get ready for an amazing episode! Let's get into it!First up, on the Internet Apologist are saying some shit yet again. Seems a pastor in Atlanta wants to teach how you should pray. Now what would you pay for this 4 week intensive course? $10,000? $100,000? A cool $Million!? Well good news you only need to pay $1500! That's a steal considering it used to be up to $2000! Seriously, can you put a price tag on your immortal soul? Pastor Juantia Bynum dares to say YES! Maybe, I should start my own anti-prayer institute. This would have nothing to do with the new RTX 4090 coming out, I have no idea what you are talking about!Next up, Remember high school? The endless classes, annoying pep rallies, and assemblies asking you what you are going to do with your life? Well a school in Louisiana decided to hide a religious service in the promise of a college and career fair. Now that seems bad enough, but what they did once the doors were closed was even more disturbing. This conversation gets a bit heated as August and Phil have a great back and forth.Time to Step in the Right Direction with Cuba? In Cuba love rules as gay marriage is legal. Not just some court decision like in the US. It is codified law! Our panel congratulates Cuba on being so open and explores a little of their history in Pride. They are also allowing adoptions and expanded women's rights! Now we are not saying you should escape to Cuba as a way to get personal freedoms, but this was a great step and hope to see more of it around the world!Lastly, what happens when you mix faith with science? If you watch any shows on the Atheist Experience Network of shows you know there tends to be a lot of goal post moving. We see a little of that in our last article about the images that are coming back from the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). Trying to find meaning and context with faith through beautiful images. Don't get us wrong, the images coming from JWST are beautiful and amazing. The data we get back can push our understanding of our universe further than we thought possible.
