Today we are talking about carbon capture. We're going explain exactly what it is. This is basically when companies want to take carbon out of the air with technology. Is it possible? is it legitimate? We're going to get into the science behind it. What did we learn this week 4:42 Mostly all Bonobos are Bisexual 5:00 Double Decker Buses 7:37 Studyt…
 
The quest to understand the formation mechanisms of globular clusters was limited by the Hubble Space Telescope’s ability to peer back in time. Now, JWST’s larger mirror has allowed astronomers to find gravitationally lensed galaxies that have globular clusters almost nine billion years old. Plus, two new super-mercury exoplanets, This Week in Spac…
 
Today we are talking about cults. Who in society is the most susceptible to becoming part of a cult? If you’re obsessed with something, is that a cult? We’re going to get into the science and psychology around these very pervasive popular things. What did we learn this week? 10:45 Cutest experiment of all time 11:26 A pill for antiaging in fly's 13…
 
After ten months of space travel, NASA’s DART spacecraft arrived at the asteroid Didymos, targeted the moonlet Dimorphos, and successfully flung itself at the surface. Multiple observations confirm that the system brightened and even managed to resolve a cloud of debris. Plus, rocket launches, an update on the SLS, some broken physics, and Internat…
 
Astronomers using the 1.2-meter Whipple Observatory to follow the brightness of a lensed galaxy for 14.5 years have calculated that the time delay between light arriving along the shortest and farthest paths is 6.73 years. Plus, DART, Hayabusa2, Juno, fast radio bursts, and This Week in Space History, we look back at NASA’s 1990s attempts to reach …
 
Beth is joined by Mike Simmons, the founder of Astronomy for Equity, an Affiliate Research Scientist at the Blue Marble Space Institute of Science, and a member of the Board of Directors for the International Dark-Sky Association. Mike is here to talk with us about a new crowdfunding campaign to bring telescopes to astronomy outreach students in Li…
 
Asteroseismologists are combining data from TESS, Kepler, and eventually JWST to study stellar oscillations in ‘infant’ stars, with the goal of creating new models for how such young stars form and evolve over time. Plus, JWST images Mars, Hubble images stars, and SpaceX manages to launch another Starlink mission in spite of weather delays.…
 
Using pockets of gas found in tiny crystals, scientists have created a timeline for the formation and eruption of four supervolcano events in northern Chile more than twenty million years ago. Plus, rocket launches, gorgeous new space images, and an interview with Jian-Yang Li about the upcoming DART mission’s impact.…
 
A population study of 43 exoplanets orbiting M-dwarf stars used both the transit method and radial velocity method to find the densities of the worlds and a surprising pattern emerged. The planets are less dense than expected, suggesting they are not purely rock but half-rock and maybe half-water. Plus, star factories in the Milky Way, glaciers on …
 
As global temperatures rise, Earth observations show that glaciers are retreating and ice sheets are melting everywhere from Greenland to Antarctica while regions of the Arctic are getting greener. Plus, collaborations lead to new Mars and exoplanet discoveries, several rockets launched, and this week’s What’s Up involves Dr. Brian May of Queen.…
 
Today we are talking about wet dreams, also known in the science community as nocturnal emissions. There’s actually quite a bit of science about what happens to our dingalings down there when we fall asleep and have an orgasm. What did we learn this week? 7:37 New research suggests up to 40% of all Alzheimer's cases could be prevented or delayed 8:…
 
As we return from our summer hiatus, we are back with a rundown of some of the stories that came out during the break. On the planetary front, JWST has been taking amazing images and learning about exoplanets. On the astrophysics front, we’ve got stories on dark matter and Betelgeuse. And there were thirty orbital launches, including a whole lot of…
 
I know we all love thinking about AGING, so today we are talking about BOTOX. We’ll be exploring what it actually is, how it effects your face (or wherever else you’re putting it!), as well as aging. Plus, we’re chatting about why aging happens to your body and sharing some groundbreaking research around the subject What Did We Learn This Week? 0:2…
 
Today we are talking about your brain on Porn. We’re sharing up-to-date research about how porn essentially affects your neurons. We’ll discuss how to understand if you have a healthy relationship with it and how to cope with it. The Science is honestly fascinating. What did we learn this Week 0:36 Some countries prefer male babies over female babi…
 
Today we are talking about the Apocalypse. Are we currently in an Apocalypse? What is our threat of nuclear war? When these things potentially happen, what can you do to survive? What skills do you need to have? What did we learn this week? 4:52 The moon rotates around the earth every 28 days 5:00 Thinking hard can actually drain you 10:34 Studytim…
 
Today we are talking about cold showers. Can they expand your life? Can they make your life better? Can they give you energy? Can they slow the aging process? We're also going to be talking about showers in general. Does washing your body make your more oily? These are the things we want to talk about. What did we learn this week? 3:47 What kind of…
