Walkabout the Galaxy
distant galaxies; alternative theory to dark matter
Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
A planetary explorer in deep space turns its eyes outward and faints a brighter glow from distant galaxies than expected, while an alternative theory to dark matter suffers a blow. (Natural) radio emissions from an exoplanet may have been detected for the first time. The astroquarks explain it all and have a year-end space news trivia round up to close out our 2020 season.
Feeling heavy? Having a hard time getting going? Does is just seem like it would be easier to stay still? Listening to Walkabout the Galaxy and forget about all those chores and errands you had planned? That relaxing feeling that makes your current sofa, chair, or bed seem like the most comfortable conceivable place in the universe is proudly brought to you by Inertia. At Inertia, we feel that there is value in taking the time, infinity if you wish, to just sit back and soak it all in. What's the rush to move around, who knows what trouble you might find yourself in. So sit back, relax, and let the Astroquarks do the walking about the galaxy, and let inertia keep you still and safe. But especially still. Inertia, making the Universe work for it for 13.8 billion years.
