Walkabout the Galaxy
interplanetary dust, Saturn, Pan, antimatter
Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
On this Pi-Day recording of WtG, the astroquarks have a special trivia question and science topics ranging from interplanetary dust to Saturn's intriguing ravioli-shaped moon Pan, and antimatter. Find out how much more energetic you'd feel if you metabolized food the way Star Trek's antimatter engines work instead of through boring chemical reactions.
I don't know what all this fuss is about, this so-called moon at Saturn. I am Pan, god of the wild, companion to nymphs. I am the original hippie, with my cloven hooves, luxuriant beard, and oh so horny horns. I am the go-to god for that woodland getaway, that get-up in the glenn, that frolic in the forest that you've always secretly dreamed of. So after your walkabout to Saturn and my namesake moon, look me up for a wild and crazy time in the woods and don't forget your flute.
