Ask A Spaceman Ep. 45: Wormholes - Deal or no Deal?  

Are wormholes real or what? How did we even start thinking of them? If we could build one, would it be possible to actually, you know, use it? I discuss these questions and more in today’s Ask a Spaceman!

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.

255 - Big Snakes and Old Lakes  

To begin, a brief word on the election. More on what we can all do next to follow down the line. Stay tuned.

00:00:00 - Patrick and Ryan are very excited to be joined by Alex Hastings, Assistant Curator at the Virginia Museum of Natural History and all around crocodylian expert. We spend the first segment of the show pestering him about all things croc and croc-related, and there's a lot. 

00:31:25 - Now is a time to come together, and possibly have a drink. Alex somehow found a beer dedicated to the giant snake Titanoboa, so what else could he possibly have had? Patrick keeps it local with a Little Red RooStarr Coffee Cream Stout, which sounds complex but also smooth. Ryan needs to give his stomach a bit of a break so opts for some Pepto-Bismol in lieu of alcohol.

00:35:52 - Alex, in addition to all his research and curation, was also in a documentary called Graveyard of the Giant Beasts from PBS about giant crocs fighting extra long snakes. Sounds far-fetched, but probably actually happened, and Alex got to help tell their story. Be sure to like the VNMH on Facebook and follow Alex on Twitter for more updates on his efforts to bring exciting paleo to the people.

01:00:04 - Listeners are a lot like documentaries, you're hesitant to listen to them, but when you do it's usually worth it. First, Ryan celebrates the largesse of Elizabeth D., who gave us a donation and that's just dandy. Patrick finishes up with an iTunes review from bkaph11. We like reviews too, so it's kudos all around. 

Thanks for listening and be sure to check out the Brachiolope Media Network for more great science podcasts!

Music for this week's show:
Crocodile Rock - Elton John
Crawlin King Snake - Muddy Waters
Reptilia - The Strokes

Travelers in the Night Eps. 241 & 242: Could Be Twins & Spray Paint  

Dr. Al Grauer hosts. Dr. Albert D. Grauer ( @Nmcanopus ) is an observational asteroid hunting astronomer. Dr. Grauer retired from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock in 2006.

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.

Science talk : Movie releases of a chemical kind, exercise and coffee  

Dr Alice is back in the house for science chat and she’s got popcorn for Dr Karl! But wait, why? They are talking movies and the science behind knowing what’s going on in a film by measuring the chemicals released by the audience. Who knew there could be a link between ‘The Hunger Games’, the Amazon rainforest and being able to diagnose medical conditions? Find out what happened in the case of the ‘poisoned pants’ and what’s the best time to exercise to lose weight? They ask the big questions about coffee – good or bad – and, should you really have a hot cup of tea to cool you down?

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.

Comics With Kenobi #25 (229)  

Oh my. So much Star Wars comics from November in this episode.

So much we even had to include an issue from December, too, to be sure we got them all.

How many? Six. Just like the original trilogy plus the prequel trilogy.

But it's worth every audio minute and every single panel on every single page to hear Jeff McGee and Matt Moore get a bit emotional over the conclusion of the deftly written Star Wars: Han Solo mini-series, as well as the adroitly executed eighth of issue of Star Wars: Poe Dameron.

Then there's the superb storytelling of the Star Wars Annual #2 and the conclusion of "Last Flight of the Harbinger" in the main Star Wars monthly.

Lastly, we conclude the adaptation of The Force Awakens mini-series by diving into issues five and six.

Record-breaking faint satellite galaxy discovered orbiting the Milky Way - SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Episode 86  

Stream Episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com or www.spacetimewithstuartgary.com (both mobile friendly) Series 19 Episode 86: *Record-breaking faint satellite galaxy discovered orbiting the Milky Way The faintest satellite galaxy ever seen has been discovered orbiting our own Milky Way galaxy. The discovery suggests the presence of a large number of undetected dwarf galaxies in the halo of the Milky Way -- providing important insights into the role dark matter plays in galaxy formation. *The new hypothesis challenging Einstein's speed of light physics Scientists behind an idea that the speed of light is variable - and not constant as Albert Einstein’s relativity theory suggests -- have made a prediction that could be tested. The speed of light in a vacuum remains one of sciences great constants – a key foundation stone underpinning modern physics and sciences understanding of the universe. *December SkyWatch -- the rock comet responsible for this month’s spectacular Geminids meteor shower One of the astronomical highlights of December are the annual Geminids meteor shower which usually peak around December 13 and 14. Radiating out of the direction of the constellation Gemini, the Geminids are unusual in that they’re not generated by a comet as most other meteor showers are – but by the debris trail left behind by the asteroid 3200 Phaethon.
