Walkabout the Galaxy
low mass stars; high mass planets; weather on Jupiter
Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
Low mass stars and high mass planets are the talk of the astroquarks in this episode, featuring a close-up look at the weather on Jupiter and a revisit to just what kind of stars provide the star stuff we're all made of. You can also find out what tractor beams have to do with Jedi mind tricks, and how crowded our local stellar neighborhood is. There's more to it than meets the eye!
You can take your problems with levers and pulleys downtown to the folks at Classical Mechanics, and your misbehaving, subatomic particles "difficult to pin down about anything" team at Quantum Mechanics, but if you're having problems just getting around the Solar System, the Milky Way, or even the local group, come see us at Celestial Mechanics. Our trained professionals will integrate your orbits to whatever degree of precision of you require. Get our Gold Service if you need to account for General Relativity, or for a short jaunt around the planetary neighborhood, bring your trajectory in for our standard and comprehensive 49 point checkout where each vector is verified to double precision with a money back guarantee. Celestial Mechanics, Zoom Zoom. (Mazda)
