Our journey through space missions continues. Now we move away from the Earth to the rest of the solar system. What’s out there orbiting, roving and flying on other worlds and in interplanetary space. Today we look inward and we’ll talk about the missions studying the Sun, Mercury and Venus.
Imagine a spacecraft traveling at a speed that would take it from New York to Tokyo in less than a minute, a mere 4 million miles from the surface of our Sun. This is what Parker Solar Probe doing. More at #365DaysoFastro
The Actual Astronomy Podcast presents Solar Observing. In this episode Chris and Shane discuss several listeners’ emails on solar observing, then talk about everything you need to know to observe the Sun safely. Topics include white light solar filters, H-Alpha as well as what you can see on the Sun.
When a Sun-like star nears the end of its life and eventually engulfing the system’s inner planets. Today podcast will discuss about how astronomers caught one in the act.
Today @AwesomeAstroPod look at what makes the moon shine, why the moon looks different every night and how objects from dust and asteroids to stars and galaxies either reflect or emit their own light.
Why Does the Sun Continue to Shine? Today @AwesomeAstroPod take a look at what stars are (and our Sun is just a star), how they are born, their chaotic lives and violent deaths.
Quick guide to the astronomy events to observe over the next few months. Farewell Frank Drake, Artemis 1 delays, and monthly round up with @AwesomeAstroPod
How big is the Sun? How do we know? How does it compare to the planets in our solar system and other stars in the galaxy? What’s the fate of the Sun?
Today at #365DaysOfAstro, @cheapastro questions some questions. Do we have the ability to measure the exact amount of heat arriving at the Earth from the Sun? & If we want a lunar orbiting space station, couldn’t we just send the ISS there?
We’ve always assumed that we lived in a perfectly normal star system with a normal star and normal planets. It’s all… normal. But with our modern understanding of billions of stars, just how normal is our Sun, anyway?
