EVSN - Planet Formation is (Still) Not Well Understood
Cosmo Quest | 365 Days of Astronomy Podcast
by 365DaysOfAstronomy.org
2h ago
From March 29, 2024. One of our recurring topics is “Planet formation is not well understood,” and a trio of new papers is making it clear why planet formation continues to... not be well understood. Put simply: the Universe likes to create more diverse solar systems than an entire planet’s worth of sci-fi writers can imagine.   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!

SETI Live - A Celestial Collaboration: Unistellar Citizen Scientists Track Comets

Throughout human history, comets have fascinated us. They have gone from signs and portents of bad things to come to well-studied and even visited "dirty snowballs". Every year, observers search the skies, hoping to discover the Next Big Comet - Halley, Hyakutake, Hale–Bopp, McNaught. From SOHO and LINEAR to ATLAS and IRAS, numerous observatories have continued to add to the count of discovered comets.  But it doesn't require expensive hardware or spacecraft to make similar observations from your own backyard; telescopes and even binoculars will work - at least for the brightest objects ..read more

Exoplanet Radio Ep. 15: A Giant Planet Found Orbiting a Small Star
Cosmo Quest | 365 Days of Astronomy Podcast
by 365DaysOfAstronomy.org
3d ago
From August 8, 2023. A massive, Jupiter-sized exoplanet has been discovered orbiting a small, low-mass star and this discovery is challenging theories on how planets form around their stars. The planet, called TOI-4860 b, is about the same size as Jupiter and orbits its star once every 1.5 Earth days, classifying it as a warm Jupiter. This is unusual because planets this large are not supposed to form around low-mass stars.   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/365DaysOfAstron ..read more

EVSN SPECIAL SHORT: How NASA Budget Cuts Will Hurt Space Science
Cosmo Quest | 365 Days of Astronomy Podcast
by 365DaysOfAstronomy.org
1w ago
This episode was recorded on March 14, 2024. Earlier in March, Congress voted into place the FY2024 budgets for multiple agencies, including NASA. The agency is being asked for an overall 2% cut. Combined with inflation rates over 3%, we are looking at a fairly significant cut to the U.S. budget for space science. Dr. Pamela Gay breaks down what these cuts will affect, including people and missions, as we move forward with this already stressful fiscal year.   We've added a new way to donate to 365 Days of Astronomy to support editing, hosting, and production costs.  Just visit: http ..read more
