365 Days of Astronomy 26 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.
The Planetary Society Radio Podcast 26 Apr 2017, 05:00 UTC It was a big week for the Science Guy, and for science. Bill Nye served as honorary co-chair of the March for Science in Washington DC. His new Netflix series, Bill Nye Saves the World, premiered the next day. Two of the show’s thirteen episodes are devoted to space science and exploration. Bill talks about all this in a special conversation with Mat Kaplan.

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.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary 21 Apr 2017, 10:22 UTC Stream Episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com or www.spacetimewithstuartgary.com (both mobile friendly) * Discovery of a potential new dwarf planet A distant member of our solar system could be the latest in a growing group of celestial bodies known as dwarf planets. 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.
