What a show this week, Dr Brad and Matt dive into black holes, a lot of black holes. Not only is one seemingly responsible for shredding a star but scientists believe they’ve found a nest of small ones.
Hayabusa-2’s mission control announced yesterday that they’re ready for orbital insertion with just a few days to go until it drops off the sample capsule. Meanwhile new research indicates long term astronauts are at risk of rapid ageing and a quartet of radio telescopes have discovered we’re a little closer to the centre of the galaxy.
Crew-1 blasts off from the cape as SpaceX helps NASA officially get back to launching from American soil over ten years after the shuttle retired. Scientists now theorise the mysterious dark matter hangs out at the outer edges of spiral galaxies – not the center. And new theories about Hawking Radiation as new research suggests something of you would survive an encounter with a black hole.
NASA preps Osiris-REx to land on an asteroid, super habitable exoplanets postulated and Dr Brad and his team discover the closest star to be gobbled up by a black hole. Those stories – plus the headlines – on this edition of Talkin’ Science.
Did We Just Catch The Making of A Black Hole? Plus Supernova Remnants and a Rusty Moon : Talkin’ Science
A faint detection at Ligo and Virgo points to the formation of an intermediate mass black hole. Scientists analysing deep sea samples find evidence of supernova remnants. And the moon’s get rusty, probably because of Earth’s protective magnetotail…
We’re back live for another edition of Talkin’ Science uncut. From hungry black holes to the loss of 7 satellites, we’ve got this week’s science and space news headlines.
Another week in our Coronavirus lockdown life rolls around, and Dr Brad Tucker is here with details of the closest black hole to Earth being discovered by astronomers, Tom Cruise and SpaceX signing up to film a movie on the Space Station and China’s shakedown cruise of it’s new long March 5B rocket.
This week Brad and Matt have details on the new mini planets found in the solar system, supermoon Wednesday and a new size of black hole – long thought probable.
