Hosts: Jesse, Lianne, Paul, Ryan Title: Ryan to Mars: An Unexpected Journey
Back from a much needed rest, the York Universe team was full of energy! With so much to discuss (two week break and all…) and only an hour to chat, it turned into a very packed night! Among other news, the York Universe team attended the “What’s Up in Space?” event hosted by the Astronuts Kids Space Club to present to engage children with astronomy activities. 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.

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 →
