Walkabout the Galaxy
Venus, Aurora, magnetic fields
Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
We're feeling happy, chatty, and ranty in the first show back in our studio since February, 2020, with a look at two new missions to Venus, a cool experiment about Aurora, magnetic field trivia, and so much more.
Stumped about what birthday present to get that special someone who seems to have everything? Or maybe they're just so picky and peculiar that anything you get might just get tossed in the trash or regifted. For all your difficult-to-shop-for friends and family, try a Herbig-Haro object. Created in the 1940s by George Herbig and Guillermo Haro, Herbit-Haro objects come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes. Every HH object come with a guaranteed luminescence of 10,000 years, but will likely last much longer, making them a great family heirloom. Know side effects of HH objects include star formation, high velocity types of ionized gas in transmission lines in the visible infrared. HH objects are not suitable for children under the age of 3. For a new start, whether for a gift or gift to yourself, try a luminous Herbig-Haro object. Herbig-Haro objects, once you pop, you can't stop (Pringles).
