Ann Arbor Science & Skeptics on “365 Days of Astronomy Podcast” IV

The Ann Arbor Science & Skeptics has provided another episode to the 365 Days of Astronomy podcast.  As you may recall, our group produced and sponsored a 365 Days episode back on September 2, September 16th, and November 2.

Click here to listen: The Science of Studying the Heliosheath: Q & A with George Gloeckler.

It features an interview with Dr. George Gloeckler, research professor of physics at the University of Michigan.  George was on the Ulysses team, a space probe that studied the composition of interstellar gas that came into our solar system.  He talks about how and why studying our heliosphere is important.

Click here to listen: September 16th Can Habitable Planets Be Found Orbiting White Dwarf Stars: Q & A with Eric Agol

It features an interview with Dr. Eric Agol, associate professor of astronomy at the University of Washington.  We discuss Eric’s speculative paper as to whether habitable planets could be found orbiting white dwarf stars.  And we talk about the Pro-Am White Dwarf Monitoring (PAWM) survey project undertaking by professional and amateur astronomers.

Ann Arbor Science & Skeptics on “365 Days of Astronomy Podcast”

The 365 Days of Astronomy podcast is a daily 10-to-15 minute podcast about various topics related to astronomy.  I typically catch most of the episodes when I can, and so it brings me great satisfaction to present today’s episode which I produced and recorded a couple weeks ago:

Click here to listen: “September 2nd: The Dark Energy Survey Project: Q & A with David Gerdes”

It features an interview with Dr. David Gerdes, a past meet-up guest, and we discuss the Dark Energy Survey project.

a 5000-square-degree optical survey of the southern sky using the 4-meter Blanco telescope at Cerro Tololo in Chile.  With the data from this experiment, we hope to measure the acceleration of the universe over time in more detail, and possibly determine if the acceleration is due to Einstein’s cosmological constant or some other mechanism. Gerdes

The episode is sponsored by our group as well.  And I’m hoping to contribute a few more episodes for 365 Days of Astronomy this year.
