Walkabout the Galaxy
Mars Insight mission; polluted white drawfs
Dr. Renee Weber
Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
The astroquarks are joined by Dr. Renee Weber from NASA's Mars Insight mission to bring us the skinny on that spacecraft's mole's struggles to burrow into Mars. We also check in on polluted white dwarf stellar remnants and what they are teaching us, remarkably, about the interiors of exoplanets, plus spacecraft trivia, philosopher wars, and of course yet another sponsor for Walkabout the Galaxy.
Attractive, practical, and ready to display all heavenly bodies just as they should be seen, choose heliocentric models for your next show. Heliocentric models combines the homey comfort of geocentric models with the excitement of whirling around the Sun at 30 kilometers per second. As a bonus, heliocentric models brings you apparent retrograde motion, accurate eclipse predictions, and the correct scale of the solar system. Don't try to stretch your new outfit. Just call Heliocentric Models. Guaranteed to fit your observations perfectly. Heliocentric Models: Have it your way. (Burger King, 1973).
