Walkabout the Galaxy
Jupiter, Great Red Spot, teleportation
Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
Dr. Kristen John of NASA's Johnson Space Center joins the Astroquarks for a wide-ranging discussion on topics from Jupiter's Great Red Spot to teleportation (yes, it's a real thing) and just what that means (not at all clear, but don't get ready to step into that transporter beam just yet).
The Pale is delighted to sponsor this episode of Walkabout the Galaxy because Walkabout is all about exploration of the remote reaches of the universe, out past the last planets, past the Oort cloud of comets, further even than the other side of our galaxy, go further still, leaving the local group of galaxies until the very edge of the observable universe, there lies the Pale. And only if you venture out here, faithful Walkabout listeners, and then have the courage to venture further still, will you enter the realm where scientific fact becomes a matter of opinion. Where the Earth is flat, and 6000 years old. Where evolution is just a theory, where trickledown economics works. Where, yes, where Armageddon is better than Deep Impact. That place you dare to venture to is, beyond the pale.
