Episode 193 Hosts: Pat, Julie, Paul Title: King Marshall and the Galaxies of the Round Council
In tonights show following some nostalgic commentary on the origin of the word “telescope”, we quickly head for the realm of the galaxies, specifically our Local Volume and the galaxies within. Professor Marshall McCall takes us on a whirlwind trek of over 400 galaxies, some 35 very bright and close and 14 in the realm of a Local Sheet. These 14 seem to have influenced teh development of teh Milky Way and are affectionately referred to as teh Council of Giants. We finish the show with a quick update on NASA’s “twin experiment” to the ISS and touch on the closest exoplanet in size to the Earth: Kepler 186f.
