Walkabout the Galaxy
Pulsars; gamma ray glow
Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
Pulsars are becoming the astrophysical version of big collisions for planetary scientists: they are explaining, perhaps, more and more things. Tune into this episode, where we welcome back Adam LaMee, to discuss the origin of a diffuse gamma ray glow from galactic central park as possibly due to a large population of pulsars. Also, don't forget the trivia and fake sponsors!
If you've just taken a cold shower, you might need a different kind of jewel heating. But if you'd like to make your next shower warm, why not heat your water with tried and true j-o-u-l-e heating. Brought to you by James Joule, joule heating, where electronic current through a conductor converts electrical energy to thermal energy, has been warming people's showers and bedrooms for over a century. Joule heating cannot be held liable for resistive losses and long distance transmission of electricity through conductors. Joule heating, ingenuity for life (Siemens)
