Enjoyed listening to the first 1/2 hr of C2C last night.
Things went abruptly downhill after the commercial break though. :x
I have to respect your choice. After all, it is easy for me to say what i think the other guy ought to do.Originally Posted by The Bad Astronomer
In any event, good show last night! Well done!
I heard the show.
The BA rules!
Yes, he was a respectable journalist at some point, as was Linda Moulton Howe.Originally Posted by ToSeek
I've worked with journalists in the past and from what I can tell, the journalistic method is similar in a lot of ways to the scientific method. But, it's a lot less rigorous and more personal. In the end it relies much more on spin than a declaration of truth. And though peer review happens occasionally in journalism, it's not a requirement. A journalist does not a scientist make.
Heard the show but couldn't get around to commenting before today really. First off great job BA! Second off listening to Hoagland's ego inflate even more afterwards I couldn't help but wonder if we should get a BABBler to "campaign" like he is for NASA Administrator. Any takers?
I went back and listened to the archived show and I believe the caller that is being referred to was asking about wormholes. The caller believed that he had seen one and was wondering if there was any one that could explain wormholes as well as other astronomical phenomena. George Noory said the only person he could think of that could explain such phenomenon is Michio Kaku.Originally Posted by The Bad Astronomer
I don't know much about Kaku. I have heard him on the radio before, and to be honest, from what I have heard, I think his ideas are a little too "out there" sometimes to explain things to the average listener. He is very popular, and that may very well be deserved, but I am pretty sure I'd explain wormholes significantly differently than he would. :-)
=D> Yeah, that was it. The guy was wondering if he had seen a distant galaxy magnified by a wormhole. George kinda blew him off, but I still thought the BA would have been a good person to ask. Wormholes are often the subject of excruciatingly Bad Astronomy in TV and Film.Originally Posted by Tbutyl
