Walkabout the Galaxy
Andromeda galaxy; galactic clusters; thermodynamics of information
Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
It's the first Strange Up Top episode of Walkabout with Hannah Sargeant where we explore the odd core of the Andromeda galaxy, the formation of galactic clusters, and the thermodynamics of information. Find out how the odd orbits of stars in Andromeda may the relics of an ancient black hole merger, how clusters of galaxies got their starts, and the strange consequences of the second law of thermodynamics.
Deaths in Science Fiction
They say the only things that are inevitable are death and taxes, but not death in science fiction. Before you can say "he's dead, Jim," you've got a 50/50 shot at a second lease on life with death in science fiction. While there's no guarantee of disappointing the Grim Reaper, you'll not get better odds of bouncing back from the great beyond than death in science fiction. Whether it's a result of a snap of Hulk's fingers in the nano-gauntlet (that ain't so nano), the magical power of love in the Matrix, or McCoy deciding to actually try to do something to save someone, death in science fiction is your best bet in turning back time. So if you're in a gambling mood, try death in science fiction. Death in science fiction may result in fictional harm or fictional death. Death in science fiction assumes no liability.
