Astro Interviews - Dr. Sabrina Stierwalt  

Our Producer/Editor, Richard Drumm, once again grabs an interview just before the December 2016 monthly meeting of the Charlottesville Astronomical Society. Dr. Stierwalt talks about ALMA, the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array radio telescope in the Chilean Andes' high plateau. We also chat about the future of radio astronomy and astronomy in general. Dr. Stierwalt also is a podcaster with her "Everyday Einstein" program, which is free on iTunes!

Awesome Astronomy Episode 54 - December 2016  

Paul Hill, Ralph Wilkins and Jenifer Millard host. Damien Phillips and John Wildridge produce.

Summary of content:

The Discussion: This month we take a look at the recent supermoon and what it takes to make the moon ‘super’; Jeni goes teaching kids about space and hones her exoplanet hunting skills; while Paul’s been hosting events with British astronaut Tim Peake.

The News: Rounding up the space and astronomy news this month we have:

- An update on Blue Origin’s spaceflight ambitions

- More on Shiaparelli and Exomars part 1

- A NASA Director’s worries about science in a Trump administration

- An Ocean like the Dead Sea under Pluto’s ice sheets

- The roundest object in space

- Could dark energy actually be an emergent property of entropy?

- The dinosaur-killing asteroid may have turned planet Earth inside out

The Hat of Woo: Delving into the rank and putrid world of conspiracy theories to debunk the nonsense that lies within. This month Paul pulls Project Pegasus out of his fetid hat where a young President Obama was part of a team of juveniles used in the 1980s to teleport to Mars and into the past. No, really!

Q&A: Listeners’ questions via email, Facebook & Twitter take us on a journey into the astronomy issues that have always plagued our understanding or stretched our credulity. This month we go back to Tycho Brahe:

What is a plain regular (non-super) nova? Doug, @DesRon94, Detroit Michigan

Cheap Astronomy - SISS #17: Organs on a Chip  

An organ-on-a-chip mimics the functional unit of a human body organ and is created by culturing a few of that organ’s specialised cells on a geometrically-organised scaffold, which is about the size of a microscope slide. A kidney-on-a-chip involves organising some nephron cells into a geometric structure that can concentrate urine. A liver-on-a-chip involves organising some Kupffer cells into a structure that can detoxify blood serum. There’s even a lung-on-a-chip that can mimic the function of alveoli, the gas exchange units in your lung.

Astronomy Cast - Ep. 429: Living on Mars  

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bKRwPASJDw8

Streamed live on Nov 24, 2016.

When Elon Musk announced plans to send humans to Mars he conveniently left out one important aspect: How are we supposed to survive on a place this hostile to life? Seriously. Mars sucks! And it's going to take some impressive techniques and technologies to make it on the red planet.

Today's 2 topics:

- Comets P2016 BA14 PanSTARRS & 252P Linear may be child & parent!

- Asteroid Bennu's orbit has changed slightly due to solar light pressure, the Yarkovsky Force. It may be an way to alter hazardous asteroid orbits to protect Earth.

Observing With Webb - December Episode  

Mercury – VERY low – 10˚above the horizon at sunset for about the first two weeks of December.

Venus – Look SW after sunset, and Venus will be about 20˚ above the horizon, very bright, and will set by 8:00pm. If you have a telescope, check out how it changes from a gibbous phase to a larger half Venus.

Mars – Look SSW after sunset and bring a sky map of Capricornus.  Mars will be the ruddy red object moving away from the Capricornus triangle and into Aquarius.  Visible until about 9:00pm, when it sets in the SW.

Saturn – Not visible this month. :^(

Jupiter – Catch Jupiter in the eastern sky in the morning after 3:30am in the beginning of the month, and 2am by the end of the month.  Just look for the very bright object in that direction in the morning.  You should notice it easily and watch it get higher and higher each morning.

Q&A: Why do giant planets have more satellites?  

Avivah Yamani hosts.

For a short answer: The gas giants have more moons than the terrestrial planets because of their great masses which result in stronger gravitational fields. And giant planets also occupy greater space and hold larger volumes of mass in their surrounding atmospheres.

AlCon 2016 - Our Sun & Its Mysterious Atmosphere  

Recorded at the Astronomical League's 2016 Annual Convention. Your Producer, Richard Drumm, apologizes for the sketchy audio quality. Someday he'll buy a wireless mic and won't have to record "room tone" off the PA system any more. Dr. George Doschek is a Research Physicist in the Solar & Heliospheric Physics Branch in the Space Science Division of the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL).

The origin of the solar chromosphere, corona, and the production of solar flares and coronal mass ejections that occur within these regions are exciting unsolved problems of solar physics. There are many theories and a plethora of space observations that observe the high energy solar atmosphere in ultraviolet, extreme-ultraviolet, X-ray, and gamma ray wavelengths. These observations have given us stunning views of the Sun that are not attainable from the Earth’s surface. Dr. Doschek discusses some of the most spectacular results from recent spacecraft such as the Solar Dynamics Observatory, STEREO, Hinode, RHESSI, and SOHO and what their data are telling us about the fundamental physics that drives the solar atmosphere and its effects on the Earth.

Awesome Astronomy - Telescope Guide  

Paul Hill, Ralph Wilkins host. Damien Phillips and John Wildridge, producers, are special guests this time round!

(Editor's note) I might add that it's always a good idea to join your local astronomy club and look through their scopes to see what they're like before you drop thousands down on a shiny behemoth. It'll help also when it comes to choosing eyepieces. Enough of me, now back to the Awesome Astro show notes:

In this podcast extra we pool our collective brainpower to bring you a 20 minute discussion of telescope types, apertures, portability and capabilities to help you buy the right telescope for you.

If you’re thinking of buying your first telescope – or thinking of getting one as a gift for someone this Christmas – then this will give you all the considerations for that purchase.

Astronomy Cast - Ep 28: What is the Universe Expanding Into?  

http://media.libsyn.com/media/astronomycast/AstroCast-070319.mp3

From March 19, 2007.

Come on, admit it, you’ve had this question. If the Universe is expanding from the Big Bang, what is it expanding into? What’s outside the Universe? Ask any astronomer and you’ll get an unsatisfying answer. We give you the same unsatisfying answer, but really explain it, so your unsatisfaction doesn’t haunt you any more.
