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. This is Ralph's last show. :^( The Discussion:  - Our dark sky practical astronomy event, AstroCamp. - Farewell Apollo 7's Walt Cunningham. - Comet C2022 E3 ZTF reaches naked eye brightness.   The News:  Rounding up the astronomy news in February, we have: - Incredible finding: stars have not always been made the same way throughout the history of the Universe. - The debacle of the first space launch from UK soil. (With an absolutely epic rant from Paul!) - 3 rocky water worlds found by the Kepler Space Telescope.   The big news story: A decade-long study finds light pollution is worse than we thought.   The Sky Guide:  This month we're taking a look at the large winter constellation of Ursa Major with a guide to its history, how to find it, a few deep sky objects to seek out and a round-up of the solar system views on offer in February.    Q&A: Does the James Webb Space Telescope have to take calibration frames like I do from Earth - darks, flats, and bias frames to then stack?  From our good friend Peter Coates in East Yorkshire.   http://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!

– Can we terraform Venus? Well maybe, though it would require some very advanced planetary engineering and huge amounts of energy. And whether you could then keep Venus terraformed without ongoing engineering interventions looks doubtful, although you could probably say the same for Mars terraforming plans.   – Please tell us more about standard candles! As we've discussed before on Cheap Astronomy our understanding of the Universe is a bitsy construction, where we know what some bits are, but we don't know other bits are – although we are pretty sure they are bits. The bits that we do know about only make up 5 per cent of all the bits – in other words 95 per cent of the Universe is composed of dark bits. And even then... the subject of this episode is to question our confidence about the 5% of the story that we think we know about.   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!

Hosted by Dr. Jacinta Delhaize & Dr. Daniel Cunnama.   In this episode, we speak with Dr. Marisa Geyer. She is a pulsar astronomer and Commissioning Scientist at the South African Radio Astronomy Observatory (SARAO) in Cape Town, South Africa. Marisa tells us what it's like to be a commissioning scientist for the MeerKAT telescope. She also explains her research on pulsars and mysterious Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs). FRBs are sudden, bright flashes of radio light. Usually they only appear once and then are never seen again.   The mystery is that we don't know what is causing these bursts of light! All we know is it's something powerful, and probably something very far away. Marisa talks us through the mystery and reveals some enticing clues about what might be causing FRBs. Hint: it involves something called a magnetar!   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!

It's amazing to think there are telescopes up in space, right now, directing their gaze at distant objects for hours, days and even weeks. Providing a point of view so stable and accurate that we can learn details about galaxies, exoplanets and more.   And then, when the time is up, the spacecraft can shift its gaze in another direction. All without the use of fuel.   It's all thanks to the technology of reaction wheels and gyroscopes. Let's talk about how they work, how they're different, and how their failure has ended missions in the past.   Scott Manley's Aug 20, 2018 clip:  Scientists May Have Figure Out Why So Many Spacecraft Were Failing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KibT-PEMHUU&t=0s   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!

Q.  First, could you tell us a little bit about yourself, your affiliation and research interests? Q.  We are going to talk about an new instrument on the Gemini North telescope in Hawaii called MAROON-X.  Let's get the acronym out of the way. What does MAROON-X stand for? M-dwarf Advanced Radial velocity Observer Of Neighboring eXoplanets. Q.  There are some clues in the acronym about the science goals of MAROON-X. What types of objects is it designed to study and what type of data will it collect? Q.  What innovations allow MAROON-X to achieve radial velocity measurements of such high precision? Q.  There was recently a press release about the first results from MAROON-X. What was its first target and what did it find? Q.  It appears these results were obtained early during the pandemic. How did the pandemic impact these obverations? Q.  What are you most excited to see in the future from MAROON-X? Bios:  Rob Sparks is in the Communications, Education and Engagement group at NSF's NOIRLab in Tucson, Arizona. Dr. Jacob Bean is an Associate Professor at the University of Chicago and Principal Investigator of MAROON-X, a new exoplanet hunting instrument at the NOIRLab's 8.1 meter Gemini North telescope.   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!

In 2021, NASA's Fermi & Swift space telescopes simultaneously picked up a powerful flash of gamma rays - named GRB 211211A, that was unusually close to our planet, only about a billion light-years away. So this GRB is one of the last GRBs to happen.  A late bloomer! The beauty of it being so close by is that astronomers could now study this newly discovered long GRB in great detail.    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!

https://youtu.be/zWTL8mzta_E Host: Fraser Cain ( @fcain ) Special Guest: Historically, scientists using spectrographic analysis to study exoplanet atmospheres have considered oxygen and methane as two key biosignatures when identifying "life-friendly" planets. But could nitrous oxide (N2O) — aka "Laughing Gas" — also be a reliable biosignature? A recent paper published in the October, 2022, Astrophysical Journal (https://iopscience.iop.org/article/10...) explains why N2O can — and should — be included as a biosignature gas. Tonight we are pleased to welcome the paper's lead author, Dr. Eddie Schwieterman, astrobiologist at UC Riverside, to discuss why N2O is an indicator of life.   Dr. Eddie Schwieterman is an Assistant Professor of Astrobiology in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at the University of California, Riverside. He earned his undergraduate degrees in physics and astrophysics from the Florida Institute of Technology and his PhD in astronomy and astrobiology from the University of Washington in Seattle.   Dr. Schwieterman studies the climate, atmospheric chemistry, geochemical evolution, and spectral appearance of terrestrial (rocky) planets. His research specifically focuses on the habitability and potential biosignatures of exoplanets.   To learn more about Eddie's research visit his website (www.eddieschwieterman.com) and follow him on Twitter: @nogreenstars (https://twitter.com/nogreenstars)   You can also read more about nitrous oxide as biosignature in the following SciNews article: Nitrous Oxide Could Help Detect Extraterrestrial Life on Exo-Earths (https://www.sci.news/astronomy/biosig...)

Pallas is the 3rd largest asteroid and has a mineral composition similar to carbonaceous chondrite meteorites, like Ceres. Like Vesta and Ceres Pallas appears to be one of only 3 intact bodies from the early stage of planetary formation to survive within the inner solar system.   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!

Blumberg NASA/Library of Congress Chair in Astrobiology.  .. *Venera-D will be the first Venus probe launched by the Russian Federation (the earlier Venera probes were launched by the former Soviet Union). Venera-D will serve as the flagship for a new generation of Russian-built Venus probes, culminating with a lander capable of withstanding the harsh Venusian environment for more than the 11⁄2 hours logged by the Soviet probes. The surface of Venus experiences average temperatures of 462° Celsius (864 Fahrenheit), crushing 90 bar (89 atm; 1,300 psi) pressures, and corroding clouds of carbon dioxide laced with sulfuric acid. Venera-D will be launched on an Angara A5 rocket.

- Why is the abundance of elements not ranked by atomic number? So, the most abundant element in the Universe is hydrogen, atomic number 1, the second most abundant element is helium, atomic number 2. But are lithium, atomic number 3, and beryllium atomic number 4 the next most abundant? No – not even a little bit. - What's involved in ‘clearing the tower'? The announcement that (insert mission name here) has cleared the tower mostly derives from NASA mission protocols and some Hollywood embellishment. So, clearing the tower is a procedural matter – it's not like everyone breathes a sigh of relief because the most dangerous part of the mission is behind them.   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!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5vdCFYvxGZw From May 14, 2020. Host: Fraser Cain ( @fcain ) The distances to other stars are depressingly enormous. Sure, it's incredibly far to get to Mars, Jupiter, and even Pluto, but at least you can design a robotic spacecraft to make the journey and see the science results in your own lifetime.   But in the case of other stars, interstellar flight times will take thousands and even tens of thousands of years to send just a robotic mission.    Fortunately, the Milky Way has got our back. Other star systems have been hurling comets and asteroids towards the Solar System. All we've got to do… is catch them.   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!

My guest today is the 1st person to free fall from more than 100,000 ft & perform a solo crossing of the Atlantic in a Gas Balloon, Colonel Joe Kittinger. Joseph William Kittinger II (born July 27, 1928) is a former United States Air Force pilot. He became famous for participating in the Excelsior project where he jumped from a helium balloon from an altitude of 31,300 m (102,800 ft) on August 16, 1960.   Kittinger was assigned by Aerospace Medical Research Laboratories at Wright-Patterson AFB in Dayton, Ohio, to Project Excelsior. The project consisted of a series of jumps to test the Beaupre multi-stage parachute system to be reliable after ejection at high altitudes and supersonic speeds.   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!
