Title: Dr. Matt planck-ing alongside supernovas
April Fools everyone! The internet was a-buzz with multiple april fools pranks, including the astronauts on the International Space Station. Cmdr Hadfield and company welcomed a new visitor on board! Special guest Dr. Matt Johnson, professor at York University and the Perimeter Institute of Theoretical Physics, helped us understand the Planck data release a little better. It’s 1/100th the normal luminosity of a type 1a supernova, we shall call them ‘mini-supernovae.’ Thanks very kindly to our special guest, and to all you listening.
