Nineteen Miles Up, Experiment Reveals Earth Microbes’ Likely Fate on Mars: NASA in Silicon Valley Podcast24 Apr 2017, 20:25 UTC
365 Days of Astronomy 22 Apr 2017, 11:00 UTC The 365 Days of Astronomy Podcast is a project that is publishing one podcast per day, 5 to 10 minutes in duration, for all 365 days of the year. The podcast episodes are written, recorded and produced by people around the world. We are looking for individuals, schools, companies and clubs to provide 5 - 10 minutes of audio for the daily podcast. You can do as few as 1 episode or up to 12 episodes (one per month, subject to our editorial discretion). Our goal is to encourage people to sign up for a particular day (or days) of the year.

Anyway, marked is Supernova PSNJ12355230+2755559. Actually it is LBV PSN J12355230+2755559, a Luminous blue variable. We measured it a little brighter than 17th magnitude. Luminous blue variables (LBVs) are massive evolved stars that show unpredictable and sometimes dramatic variations in both their spectra and brightness. They are also known as S Doradus variables after S Doradus, one of the brightest stars of the Large Magellanic Cloud. They are extraordinarily rare with just 20 objects listed in the General Catalogue of Variable Stars as SDor, and a number of these are no longer considered to be LBVs.

Measurements of 2014 UZ224 – and more informally known as DeeDee – indicates it’s roughly 635 kilometers wide -- large enough have sufficient mass to be self-gravitating – in other words round – one of the criteria necessary for astronomers to consider it a dwarf planet. *Record breaking pulsar neutron star system discovered Citizen scientists have helped astronomers discover an unusual record breaking double neutron star system. The findings will help scientists better understand and test Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity which explains the interaction of mass and the fabric of spacetime. *Three Australian Satellites launched on Cygnus cargo ship bound for Space Station Orbital’s seventh Cygnus Cargo ship has successfully blasted off on an Atlas V rocket carrying fresh supplies bound for the International Space Station. Included in the Cygnus AO-7 payload are three small Australian satellites to study the interactions between space weather and weather on Earth.

Hubblecast HD 20 Apr 2017, 10:00 UTC Throughout its 27-year history, Hubble has seen enough of the Universe to fill 100 episodes of the Hubblecast — 10 hours worth! These episodes have captured the science, culture, trials, and successes of Hubble, ranging from its spectacular images to its cutting-edge discoveries to its impact on society.

Scientists say the hydrogen was part of a soup of water and minerals analogous to hydrothermal vents at the mid ocean ridges on Earth, which are known to support life on the seafloor. *Four new objects being investigated in the search for Planet 9 A search hunting for a possible ninth planet in the dark outer reaches of the solar system has discovered a new system of four exoplanets orbiting a nearby star. The discovery was part of the BBC’s Stargazing Live broadcast from the Siding Spring Observatory in outback New South Wales. *New study of the strange Casimir Effect on quantum particles Physicists have discovered a new property exhibited by the Casimir Effect -- a strange force that effects matter on the smallest of scales. The new research expands on what science understands about this strange quantum property -- by showing how it can affect the motion of nanoscale particles.
