Astrophiz Podcast 44 (Galaxy Detective edition) is Out!
To understand how galaxies evolve, Dr Rebecca Allen uses Hubble and Keck images to study star-forming galaxies and galaxies that are not forming stars.
Rebecca’s passion for both outreach and research makes for a exceptional episode as she paints a clear picture of galactic evolution to help us understand some of the fundamental elements of our cosmos.
For observers and astrophotographers, I continue with ‘What’s Up Doc’ and tells you when, where and what to look for in morning and evening skies. In Ian’s Tangent, I helps you understand more about the new discovery of Binary Comets.
You can follow me @ianfmusgrave on Twitter and southern skywatch on facebook.
In the News:
The 2017 Nobel Prize for Physics awarded to 3 men (out of the hundreds of) researchers who created LIGO and the first GW detection.
Dame Jocelyn Bell Burnett still not recognised by the Nobel Committee for her discovery and analysis of Pulsars. That honour was snagged by the bloke who ‘supervised ’her research.
