Yuri’s Night and Lianne’s Fight: April 8th, 2013

Show Notes: April 9th, 2013 UTC

Hosts: Paul, Jesse, Ryan (and Lianne)
Title: Yuri’s Night and Lianne’s Fight

Lianne fought valiantly with her internet connection in order to join us on-air for the show, but alas, the internet won. While we did miss her, we were able to talk about oxygen and carbon found in the atmosphere of an extrasolar planet, as well as chat about the rate of type 1a supernovae in the early universe. This April 12th, 2013 will be the 52 anniversary of the benchmark flight of Yuri Gagarin, the first human to ever leave their earthly bounds and venture into space. This is now celebrated worldwide as ‘Yuri’s Night.’ Look for an astronomy/space club near you that’s celebrating and enjoy the festivities. As always, thanks for listening. See below for the show notes and podcast.

Hosts: Paul, Jesse, Lianne
Title: The Sequester Walks The Planck

A little extra time on the show tonight allowed us to pontificate on the political strife in the United States. The sequestration has caused a massive amount of public funding cuts, including NASA public outreach and education. Of course the Planck Telescope delivers its news that Universe is slightly older than we once thought. Paul, ‘the dean,’ gripes over his failing Aussie cricket team (but mostly off-air). Astronomy Night in Canada starts with York Universe, thanks for listening! See our show notes and podcast below.
