Walkabout the Galaxy
dark matter, Australian radio telescope, cold plasma
Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
Not all dark matter is "dark matter" dark matter. Some is simply dark, well, matter. An Australian radio telescope has found a long filament of cold plasma from the scintillations it produces in the radio waves of background sources. We'll explain all that, and take a deep dive into dust from space and dust from your face in another wide-ranging episode of Walkabout the Galaxy.
Electronic Band Structure
We like to go by EBS, and we have the best new techno-pop sound. Get our new album, with hits including the timeless "Somewhere Over the Band Gap," the nostalgic "I'm Pickin' Up Lattice Vibrations, Electronic Excitations," rock anthems "In the Name of Fermi, Conduct in the Name of Fermi," folk music "Like a Bridge Over Atomic Orbitals, I Will Jump the Gap," political, "And Here's to You Erwin Schrödinger, Einstein Never Loved Your Paradox. Whoa Whoa Whoa. Go Save your Cat, Erwin Schrödinger, Measurements are Meant to Save the Day, Hey Hey Hey, Hey Hey Hey." And last but not least, for the pure hard rockers, "I Love Electron Holes, Move That Charge One Lattice Over. I Love Electron Holes, Put Another Charge in that Crystal Babe.
All these, and many more, available on the new EBS album, Professor Fermi's Lonely Valance Band. Electronic band structure, ideas for life. (Panasonic)
