The 365 Days of Astronomy

Hosted by Dr. Jacinta Delhaize & Dr. Daniel Cunnama. We are joined by Dr. Omima Osman, a lecturer at the University of Khartoum in Sudan, who recently completed her PhD at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) in Western Australia.   Omima’s PhD research was all about cosmic dust. She explains how this dust forms in the death throes of massive stars, how it grows in interstellar space and how it’s then, in turn, destroyed again by the death of stars. Omima also spoke to us how her research into the “stickiness” and “chance of destruction” of dust...

The 365 Days of Astronomy

From December 16, 2021. A team of scientists collected cores and modeled ice cliff failure and found that Thwaites Glacier in Antarctica is melting more quickly than ever and could be at risk of collapse, threatening global coastlines with almost a meter of sea level rise. Plus, new results from Percy, and this week’s What’s Up.   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!

The 365 Days of Astronomy

Hosted by Steve Nerlich. Dear Cheap Astronomy – Are there any missions to the Moon before Artemis? So yep, were going back to the Moon, sometime soon.

But anyhow, even before that happens, whenever it happens, the CLPSs, the Commercial Lunar Payload Services, will start to arrive.   Dear Cheap Astronomy – What will the first lunar colony look like? Well, it will probably...

The 365 Days of Astronomy

From May 8, 2024. In February, on the closest approach, NASA's Juno spacecraft was within 930 miles of the closest moon Io’s surface. Since then, Juno’s orbit has been shrinking, bringing the mission closer to Jupiter and away from the circling Galilean moons. Io and Juno have parted ways, and Juno is now snuggling down into tighter orbits around her Jupiter.   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!

Today's 2 topics:

- Ten hours and 46 minutes after my Catalina Sky Survey teammate Greg Leonard discovered a Toyota RAV4 sized space rock, now named 2018 UA, streaking through the constellation of Pegasus at 8.8 miles/second, this tiny asteroid passed less than 1/2 the distance of the communications satellites to the surface of planet Earth.

- Aten Asteroids are stealthy space rocks which can be dim and hard to detect since for most of their path about the Sun their illuminated side is facing away from us.
