A data visualization designer has created an interactive graphic that allows us to explore all 50 gravitational wave events recorded to date, and some even have sounds! Plus, blue jet lightning and all the planetary science stories we can handle. Happy Friday!
Join us for this week’s Rocket Roundup with host Annie Wilson as we look back at the launches and missions that happened last year, including test flights and first flights, mission launches and discoveries, and all the people in space (and their zero-gravity indicators). Plus space toilets.
Cosmic reionization caught in the act; Exoplanet pair found using ground-based telescope; Celebrate the Fourth of July with two images of cosmic fireworks
Join us today as we talk some more about cosmic reionization and the mounting evidence it occurred very early in the Universe. We also look at two exoplanets, found using a ground-based telescope, that are gravitationally interacting. And we celebrate the Fourth of July here in the United States with some newly released images of cosmic fireworks.
