In our new format, we bring you a mix of stories. First, an update on the Bennu sampling situation. Next, the top stories, where NASA has reported that the SOFIA airborne telescope found water in a sunlit crater on the Moon, and another team has found water ice reservoirs. Plus, the search for Planet Nine, studying asteroid Psyche 16, and the magnetic fields at a jellyfish galaxy.
Join us today as we look at a next-generation Cosmic Microwave Background experiment and then try to get a handle on how astronomy and climate interact. Also, Bennu is ejecting particles into space, because… Bennu.
Fermi bubbles and the Magellanic Stream; Fast Radio Bursts and their host galaxies; Mars and its former ring
Join us today while we take a look at Fermi bubbles and their relationship to the Magellanic Stream. We examine new research on the origin galaxies of some Fast Radio Bursts. And we learn about how Mars’ moon Deimos provided evidence that Mars once had a ring.
Pulsar powering up; Prototype Gamma-Ray telescope sees Crab Nebula; Hot stars have giant magnetic spots
Join us today while we look at astronomy stories from around the world: observing the start-up of a pulsar from a grad student in Australia; observing gamma rays with a new prototype telescope in Arizona; and observing giant magnetic spots with the European Southern Observatory.
Join us today as we take a look at a possible new classification of high energy outbursts. Next, we examine the latest evidence that an exoplanet at our nearest stellar neighbor, Proxima Centauri, really exists. And finally, we go over a bunch of recent stories on asteroids and comets, including our own dinosaur-killer, Bennu, Ryugu, and Comet ATLAS.
