Show Notes for April 16, 2013 (UT)

Hosts: Ryan, Jesse, Lianne
Title: Stars Will Find a Way

Paul takes a rare (and much deserved) night off from the York Universe broadcast. Dark matter has been all over the major news outlets; we chat about the recent AMS and SuperCDMS data, and their hints at dark matter. It appears Dr. Ian Malcolm was right (…sort of), ALMA has found stars forming close to Sagittarius A* (our Milky Way’s supermassive black hole), and CFHT has helped discover stars forming in the tidal tail of galaxy being torn apart. Ryan’s ‘What’s the latest?’ podcast debuts tonight! You should check it out. Thanks for listening everyone. Show notes and podcast below.

NOTE: We go live at 8 pm EDT (Tuesday at 12 am UT ) next week! So make sure to tune in! Continue reading
