Stellar Evolution and Black Holes with Dr. Niel Brandt - 03 Podcast #podcast #science #space
Dr. Brandt: https://personal.psu.edu/wnb3/ Dr. Niel Brandt is the Verne M. Willaman Professor of Astronomy & Astrophysics, and Professor of Physics at The Pennsylvania State University. Dr. Brandt is joining us today to speak specifically about his outreach through summer teacher workshops as well as his primary research interests which include: The growth of supermassive black holes over cosmic time Black-hole vs. galaxy connections Deep cosmological multi-wavelength surveys Supermassive black-hole winds and feedback into galaxies Sample-based studies of active galactic nuclei Extreme active galactic nuclei as tools X-ray astronomy and high-energy astrophysics Deep, wide, and fast cosmic surveys This summer’s workshop “The Lives and Deaths of Stars” will be held on July 17-21st at The Pennsylvania State University. https://sites.psu.edu/psiwa/ 00:00:00 Introduction 00:02:03 Penn State Teacher Workshops with Niel 00:15:22 Do black holes move and should I be scared of them? 00:18:00 In what ways will the James Webb Space Telescope help you in your research? 00:22:01 JWST Micrometeorite Impact 00:22:55 Gravity Waves 00:25:18 NASA Spinoffs 00:29:55 Stellar Evolution
The Science of James Webb Space Telescope - What makes JWST so Exciting? - S1E2 Podcast
In this video co-hosts Dave Farina and Rob Webb dive into the James Webb Space Telescope which has made a huge splash in the astronomy world over the last month. Dave and Rob discuss what makes them excited about the telescope, and discuss some of the science that JWST is built to conduct.
How is NASA returning Astronauts to the Moon? - Artemis - Podcast S1 E1
#nasa #space #science In our very first episode of the Cosmos Safari podcast, hosts Dave Farina and Rob Webb dive into NASA's Artemis program that will return humans back to the moon for the first time in over 50 years, and eventually to Mars! Learn more about this awesome NASA mission and explore the possibilities that future human space travel makes possible. The first lunar landings inspired an entire generation to look beyond the Earth and imagine endless possibilities. Technologies created to meet the demands of these missions have shaped our modern world in almost every way, and the Artemis program will likely reap similar unforeseen benefits as well. These NASA Spinoff technologies may very well change the world as we know it.
