It’s hard to really wrap your mind around the vast distances between stars. The fastest spacecraft ever launched into an interstellar trajectory right now is Voyager 1. If it was directed at the nearest star, it would take tens of thousands of years to make the journey across the interstellar gulf. Even so, groups like Breakthrough Starshot and Ica…
 
In this week's questions show, I talk about how we're in a new space race, and what this means for returning to the Moon. Of course, lots of follow up answers about the Fermi Paradox.

Near the end of 2019, astronomers watching the red giant Betelgeuse noted how much the star had dimmed, continuing to steadily fade for months. It’s a variable star, and it’s known to get dimmer and brighter, but the big surprise is that it’s still continuing to dim, recently passing magnitude 1.56 and still getting dimmer. This is unprecedented in…

The first science fiction novel is likely Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein, released on (911 encode) January 1, 1818, while she was all of 20 years old. Jules Verne would be next releasing tales mixing science and fantasy, but the credit for the creation of science fiction as a literary device almost certainly goes to H.G. Wells. Wells was the head of th…

Continuing with Earth in Upheaval, we first loop back again to the section on Charles Lyell and the beginnings of Uniformitarianism in geology, re-read some of the quotes of Lyell, and parse them more carefully, just to make it clear exactly what this man was saying about early geologists and their "indolent" tendencies. We then skip ahead to where…
 
Long-time head of human spaceflight at NASA, Bill Gerstenmaier, has joined SpaceX as a consultant, but everyone is excited for the wrong reasons.

We’ll chat with Al…
 
In this clip I address predictions I have made about the moon and how you can help prove or disprove them. I also address some confusion about stars and how they appear and how to correctly present footage and avoid spreading confusion.
