Walkabout the Galaxy
chirality; Saturn's rings
Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
Lefty astroquark Jim Cooney leads us on an exploration of what it means for the universe to have chirality. In other words, is there a break in parity in the way galaxies are distributed, or would the universe look the same if we saw its mirror image? The answer and its possible explanation are fascinating. And Josh gets to once again talk about one of his favorite topics, Saturn’s rings, and new results on their age.
The kids need to get to school, the car's in the shop, and the plumber won't call you back. If you've reached your limit, get the Roche limit, determining where gravitational accretion can occur around planets for billions of years, the Roche limit is an elegantly simple approach to help you set boundaries. Use the Roche limit to keep all the pieces of your life from getting pulled apart by tidal forces and get back in control. The Roche limit, keep climbing (Delta).
