  • Astronomers using Hubble Space Telescope Data have new observations of a candidate exomoon associated with Kepler-1625b.  If confirmed, this exomoon would be quite large, with a mass and radius similar to Neptune.  The exoplanet Kepler-1625b is itself quite large, a planet initially estimated to be several Jupiter masses.

Please join Tony Darnell, Carol Christian, Alex Teachey and David Kipping as they discuss these new observations and what they tell us about this new exomoon.

      

  • The discovery over the past few years that stars in the Milky Way may each be orbited by at least one planet suggests that among these numerous planetary systems may reside planets similar to Earth, perhaps even harboring life. The HabEx concept is intended to be the astronomical community’s response to an age-old question of humanity, “Are we alone in the cosmos?" 

Although optimized for direct-imaging exoplanet science, HabEx will also enable a broad suite of unique “general astrophysics” science, not possible from ground- or space-based facilities available in the 2030s, when HabEx would launch. 

Please join our regular hosts, Tony Darnell and Harley Thronson, as they discuss with Drs. Sara Seager  (MIT), Daniel Stern (NASA JPL), and John Clarke (Boston University) the astronomical search for life and the technological advances that will make it possible.

      

  • The Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope (DKIST) is currently under construction on Haleakala in Hawaii.  This ground-based flagship observatory promises to shed light on the fundamental physical processes that govern the behavior of the Sun and many other astrophysical objects that continue to remain elusive. 

Please join Dr. Jeff Kuhn, Dr. Svetlana Berdughina, Tony Darnell and Christian Ready as we learn about this new observatory and the science it promises.

      

  • Welcome to a special edition Telescope Talk!  Today we're going to meet Dustin Gibson, owner of Oceanside Photo and Telescopes in California to help you sort out your questions with buying a telescope.

      

  • What would the planet Vulcan be like? It might be like the "super-Earth" planet orbiting a nearby star (16 light years) called HD 26965. The planet is only 2 times the size of Earth and the parent star is much like the sun. The planet orbits the star in a mere 42 days - but it is just inside the habitable zone where life might form. The star is a little smaller and cooler and has other attributes similar to the Sun. The object was found with the Dharma Endowment Foundation Telescope (DEFT), a 50-inch telescope located atop Mt. Lemmon in southern Arizona near Tucson. The astronomers think the planet just might be suitable for life and even an advanced civilization. Several publications about Star Trek actually referred to this planetary system as the home of Mr. Spock known by its other name, 40 Eridani.
