Walkabout the Galaxy
Earth's magnetic field; rain on Titan; planet formation
Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
The astroquarks discuss stunning images of a disk of gas and dust around another star giving birth to a planet, more weirdities and oddness in the Earth's magnetic field, the rain on Titan, and so much space news. It's so much exciting stuff that we had to record outside. Catch up on human spaceflight news as well as extraterrestrial lake trivia with your friendly guides to the universe.
Dunder Mifflin, Assistant to the Regional Manager, Scranton Branch, Dwight Schrute. Bears, Beets, Walkabout the Galaxy
Fact: Through simple brain power, I can will myself to have the same knowledge as an astroquark. People assume that telescopes are necessary to unlock the mysteries of the cosmos, false. I live on a farm and have seen three sheep work in formation to force a goat to eat the grass stuck on a pig's behind. Mystery unlocked, no telescope required. Though I did use night-vision goggles, skills I bring to my position as a volunteer sheriff's deputy on permanent leave. Which means all my sting operations are undercover because they are not unofficially sanctioned, even though I have been sanctioned. Top that, astroquarks. I started listening to Walkabout the Galaxy because I thought it was training for an Outback star-gazing hike in Australia where I planned to find workers to care for my sheep. But Walkabout the Galaxy is not about that. I'm not sure what it's about. Dwight Schrute, Australians wouldn't give a XXXX for anything else. (Castlemaine XXXX beer)
