The astroquarks welcome Professor Mohamed Noor from Duke University, author of "Live Long and Evolve" to talk about evolution of humans and aliens, interspecies sex, and what we can learn about the big questions of life, the universe and everything from Star Trek. As if that wasn't enough, there's new intriguing information about Dark Energy, plus Nobel Prize trivia and space news featuring our recent payload flights with Blue Origin's New Shepard. Tune in for all your space and alien news.
Not some mystical exploration of the supernatural or the occult, stellar occultations are about as natural as you can get without eating a bowlful of Grape Nuts. Whether you're studying the atmosphere of Pluto or Titan, the rings of Saturn, or the shape of Ultima Thule, that flickering of light as the star discretely and temporarily slips from view carries worlds of information. Literally. Because you're looking at a world. As it occults a star. Stellar Occultations: sometimes what's missing is more important than what's there.
