This month Cosmic Savannah are joined by fours members of the board of the recently established African Network of Women in Astronomy (AfNWA), Prof Mirjana Pović, Prof Vanessa McBride, Dr Priscilla Muheki and Prof Carolina Ödman.
A powerful, naturally occurring “space laser”, called a megamaser, has been discovered with South Africa’s MeerKAT radio telescope in a galaxy nearly five billion light-years away. And today we have Professor Sarah Blyth & Dr. Marcin Glowacki to talk about it.
Today’s @cosmicsavannah take a step back from astronomy and focus on mental health in academia and beyond. More about it with Dr Jack Radcliffe
The @cosmicsavannah talk to Professor Travis Rector about how to communicate climate change and why it is important for astronomers to do so.
In celebration of our 50th episode, we are joined by a titan of astronomy, Dr. Bernie Fanaroff, who speaks with us about his illustrious career and his vision for the future of astronomy in Africa.
Today @cosmicsavannah talk with Dr. Elizabeth Naluminsa to celebrate Women and Girls in Astronomy and discuss about her works on SALT and SALT instrumentation
Today @cosmicsavannah discuss about ATLAS and its discovery of near-Earth object (NEO) with Dr. Nicolas Erasmus from SAAO.
Today @cosmicsavannah are joined by Dr Kenda Knowles to discuss about her work and the detection of very faint emissions from these clusters. Also dataset of radio emission from 115 galaxies clusters.
Today @CosmicSavannah back to their first episode to prepare for more update in their next discussion with Dr. Nicolas Erasmus. So for today, we have the hunt for near-earth asteroids (from 00:23m) using the ATLAS network.
Its goal is to push the boundaries of astronomy and cosmology by observing some of the most distant events and objects in the universe, such as the formation of the first stars and galaxies. Today @cosmicsavannah discuss about JWST with Prof Christy Tremonti
