Walkabout the Galaxy
Volcanoes; climate; numbers
Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
Volcanoes on ancient Earth and not-so-ancient Venus are the main topics for the astroquarks, with planetary trivia, and a giant gassy wave moving through the Milky Way. Catch up on all the different types of numbers, from imaginary to prime, and all the space news and climate updates on this episode of Walkabout the Galaxy. Check out YouTube for the gas-wave shimmy.
The Great Attractor
For your next intergalactic vacation, don't fight the urge, let yourself be pulled in by The Great Attractor. Forget about Waimea Bay and Kealakekua Bay and Holualoa Bay, and instead plunge through the zone of avoidance with the Great Attractor at the heart of the Laniakea Supercluster. Laniakea, home to the Milky Way and hundreds of thousands of other galaxies is the perfect vacation. If you want it, Laniakea Supercluster has it. So just go with the Hubble flow, and come explore the Great Attractor. We've got the galaxy for you. The Great Attractor, it's a bit of an animal.
