Astrophiz Podcast 8 is Out
Dr Cherbakov tells us about the discoveries and passing of Owen Slee, and explains how neutron stars form, and how some become pulsars. I continue ‘the dance of the planets’, and introduce ‘Ian’s Tangent’ a new segment, and this week it is about observing the moons of Jupiter using binoculars and 'What's up in the sky this week'.
In the news this week: the LOFAR Array, @Astrokatie nails some misconceptions, a 5th force of nature? … and exploding white dwarf stars.
