Shah Sez CME’s Ain’t Good For You!

Episode 196. Monday the 12th of May 2014.
Hosts: Jen, Paul, Shah
Title: Shah Sez CME’s Ain’t Good For You!
From the history of the exploration of Venus (and its challenges) to the excitement of Apollo 10 and Skylab, tonight’s show starts out local but heads for the uncharted regions of a simulated universe.  We then work our way back to the siblings of the Sun and the expectation to find more of the Sun’s family in the not too distant future.  Finally, we discuss the implications of a direct hit from a monster CME similar or worse than the Carrington event of 1859 or the recent event from July 2012.  With our newest host Shah and Jen’s first time at the controls, it is a show not to be missed!

Ryan pre-recorded an episode of Curiosity Corner…and then introduced it himself, showing that it is possible to be in two places at once. Finally, we discussed both Exoplanets and Giant Elliptical galaxies. Thanks for listening all! Podcast and show notes below.
