Walkabout the Galaxy
Saturn, Saturn's rings, Cassini, Mars
Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
The astroquarks welcome Brendan Byrne from WMFE 90.7 to discuss the some jaw-dropping images of Saturn's rings as Cassini begins working its way in towards its fateful plunge into Saturn on September 15, 2017. Along the way we'll dissect F/X no-no's in Star Wars and find out from Brendan if we're there yet. There = Mars, by the way, and time's a wastin'.
Three Body Problem
The Three Body Problem is proud to sponsor Walkabout the Galaxy and it's three astroquarks. As you know, there is no closed, analytical solution to the Three Body Problem so we admire the astroquarks ability to hang out as three bodies and record Walkabout the Galaxy. If you've been contemplating the orbital evolutions of asteroids and comets, or perhaps the temporarily captured mini-moons around your own charming, for the time being, planet, better just get your computer fired up to run some numerical integrations 'cause you ain't gonna solve me with no pencil and paper. The Three Body Problem, confounding theorists since Newton, and keeping Walkabout the Galaxy unpredictable.
