The 365 Days of Astronomy

From December 14, 2009. Today’s episode of Astronomy Cast is about another famous physicist: Enrico Fermi. We’ve already taken a look at one of Fermi’s most famous ideas, the Fermi Paradox – or, where are all the aliens? But let’s meet the man behind the ideas, the namesake for the new Fermi mission.   We've added a new way to donate to 365 Days of Astronomy to support editing, hosting, and production costs.  Just visit: and donate as much as you can!

Gamma-ray bursts are some of the most powerful explosions in the universe. Short gamma ray bursts are caused by the merger of two neutron stars. However, not all short gamma-ray bursts are associated with galaxies. In this podcast, Brendan O’connor, a graduate student at George Washington University, described recent research into the host galaxies of short gamma-ray bursts.    Bios:  - Rob Sparks is in the Communications, Education and Engagement group at NSF’s NOIRLab in Tucson, Arizona.. - Brendan O'connor is a 6th year PhD student in the Department of Physics at The...

Rocket launches are expensive. Even with huge price drops from SpaceX and other New Space companies, there’s no cheap way to get stuff down here in Earth’s gravity well up to low Earth orbit.    In order to really survive and thrive in space, we’ve got to learn to live off the land, to acquire the resources in space that will allow us to survive… in space. We’ve got to learn to turn those raw materials into forms we need: fuel, breathable air, water, construction materials, and eventually even finished goods like rocket parts and electronics.   Download 3D models from...

The 365 Days of Astronomy

The first in a series of three Astronomy 101 videos from this spring’s AstroCamp where Dr. Jen is explaining some basics of astronomy.   In this first video, we're taking a look at the colour of stars and why stars appear the colours they do. She'll also explain how the mass of a star is related to its temperature, what happens to expanding dying stars and why we don't see any green or purple stars.   But please do help us out by subscribing to the show:   We've added a new way to donate to 365 Days of Astronomy to support editing, hosting, and production costs.  Just...

- If we want a lunar orbiting space station, couldn’t we just send the ISS there?  Well we could, but whether it would work is another question. There’s a fundamental principle that things are built-for-purpose. Of course, you can re-purpose things, but that’s only worthwhile if it makes practical and economic sense. - Could bacteria have hopped aboard the Venera probes and seeded Venus’ atmosphere?  So, as you may have heard there’s phosphine in them there clouds of Venus and the astronomical community is cautiously excited, but also ready for a gentle let down if it turns...
