Walkabout the Galaxy
NASA, Earth, Milky Way, black hole
Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
NASA does many inspiring and amazing things, from fundamental research into the evolution of the universe and the formation of planetary systems, to development of new technologies to enable humans to go to other worlds. They also sponsor research to monitor the Earth and to monitor the space near the Earth for potential impactors. The astroquarks weigh in on their own preferences for NASA's research priorities and discuss the results of a new survey of Americans on the subject. There's also the discovery of new weird stellar objects near the Milky Way's supermassive black hole, updates on Mars' early climate, and space trivia as always!
Hey 3rd rock, what's happenin'? You folks have been sending a lot of stuff my way, and I'm flattered and everything, but it's getting a little ridiculous. So let me just come out and tell you right now: I got me some water! Not as much as I used to, and not as much as you, but there's water here and we used to be downright soggy. But it's been quiet times for a while, so feel free to stop on by on your Walkabout the Galaxy, and send me a postcard – or another rover if you really must – from your next destination. Just keep the bugs and bacteria to yourselves! Mars – bringing you this episode of Walkabout the Galaxy and so, so, many stories about water.
