Walkabout the Galaxy
black holes, interferometry
Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
There are black holes and interferometry in this episode, but the nerd news segment on Patrick Stewart either sets a new standard or a new low. You be the judge as the astroquarks, Josh Colwell, Addie Dove and Jim Cooney take a look at advances in imaging the event horizon of the supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy.
How quaint! A podcast called "Walkabout the Galaxy". As if your run-of-the-mill Milky Way was something special. I’ll say one thing for you Earthlings, you're always good for a chuckle. In fact I'd rather be a human than even a Markoffian sea lizard or Belzoidian flea because I find you so entertaining. But I could make your galaxy blink out of existence with a thought, and the rest of the universe wouldn't bat an eye, though the continuum frowns on that sort of thing. So please, continue with your meandering around your little corner of the universe, your "walkabout". The continuum approves.
