Clare Lewins has created a film that takes us inside the lives of people who have lived and worked on the International Space Station. Cady Coleman is one of the featured astronauts in this beautiful, intimate and very affecting documentary. Planetary Society contributor Jatan Mehta tells us about South Korea’s plans for a lunar orbiter with an ama…
 
The Rocket Roundup this week features two Chinese launches, including one we couldn’t cover last week, a Russian military satellite launch, and some more Starlink and OneWeb internet satellites. Plus, this week in rocket history, we discuss a groundbreaking mission that sent humans farther from Earth than ever before: Gemini 11.…
 
Morgan Cable of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory is lead author of a paper that makes a compelling argument for a mission to Saturn’s small but dynamic moon Enceladus. She and her stellar co-authors believe it is among the best and easiest places in our solar system to look for evidence of life. Morgan has also been involved with the synthesis of o…
 
The discovery of multicellular algae specimens in an early Cambrian formation in China provides evidence of the change from cyanobacteria to more complex organisms with external membranes and cell walls. Plus, a new spacesuit is tested in Oregon, and we look at the real secrets of Stonehenge.
 
In the last few decades, we have learned that most of these stars are hosts to their own systems of planets, just as the Sun is to our Solar System. We call these worlds exoplanets, or extrasolar planets. Alexander Winn takes us incredible distances to learn about them. You can catch this episode along with the rest of them on YouTube with closed c…
 
NASA hopes to radically reduce the price tag for exploring Mars with a mission called ESCAPADE. Principal investigator Rob Lillis and his team will send two small probes to the Red Planet in 2024 for less than $80 million. They will work with orbiters already circling Mars to answer deep questions about the evolution of that world’s formerly thick …
 
Hycean worlds have hydrogen-rich atmospheres and are covered in oceans, making them prime candidates for the search for life outside our own solar system. These worlds are also more numerous and easier to find than Earth-like exoplanets. Plus, an update on the search for Planet 9 and how volcanoes may provide a climate safety valve.…
 
Communication is culture, says Dr. Linda Billings, an expert in social science and space outreach. So what culture is summed by the types of space advocacy that call for pioneering, colonization and conquest of nature? Linda talks about the importance of language and context when advocating for space, and how we should consider other cultural value…
 
It was one of the most exciting planetary science announcements in 2018: Radar from an orbiting spacecraft might have found large pools of liquid water under the Martian south pole. But good science doesn’t end with first conclusions. Jeffrey Plaut and Isaac Smith are among the researchers who have found that a form of clay may better explain these…
 
This week Alexander Winn presents Edgeworks Nebula's newest show "You Have My Sword" where host Krysti Pryde talks all thing Tolkien from The Hobbit to the Silmarillian. In this episode she deep dives into the back story of Galadrial. We will be back next week with episode 19 of Settle the Stars: Exoplanets Check out all things Krysti Pryde and "Yo…
 
Jupiter’s moon Europa hides a vast water ocean under a protective layer of ice. The Europa Clipper mission will send a powerful orbiter to investigate. Mission system manager L. Alberto (Al) Cangahuala tells us about the great strides made toward a planned 2024 launch and the challenges ahead. Bruce Betts faces one of the greatest challenges for an…
 
New research has pinpointed small, violent faults caused by the breakup of an ancient supercontinent as the potential cause of a major loss in the rock record of the Grand Canyon, known as the Great Unconformity. Plus, using sky mapping tools to find earthly tombs and a review of Andy Weir’s “Project Hail Mary.”…
 
For almost as long as astronomers have been fascinated by the bright, shining points of light in the sky, they’ve also wondered about the space between them. After all, smaller objects had been known to fall from the sky for thousands of years, made of metal of otherworldly strength and mysterious magnetic properties. But where did these objects co…
 
Cassini project scientist Linda Spilker is back to describe how data from the Saturn mission that ended four years ago is behind new, trailblazing science. Linda has also rejoined the team behind NASA'S Voyager mission that is celebrating important anniversaries. She closes with convincing arguments for missions to Saturn’s moon Enceladus and the i…
 
A magnitude 7.2 earthquake shook the island nation of Haiti, destroying thousands of homes and resulting in the loss of over 1,400 people. Additionally, Tropical Depression Grace arrived and hampered rescue efforts. Plus, the asteroid Phaethon is outgassing sodium, studying Mars’ moons in the search for life, and how dust storms helped dry out Mars…
 
Using a neutron spectrometer onboard the Dawn spacecraft, scientists have found elevated concentrations of hydrogen in Ceres’ Occator Crater, which provides evidence of an icy crust. Plus, everything is on fire in the western United States, and we review “The Past is Red” by Catherynne M. Valente.
 
Alexander adventures on to the large bodies circling our Sun at the farthest reaches of our Solar System that could almost be – or in Pluto’s case, once were – considered planets, with a range of unique features and characteristics. These planets clue us in on how our solar system came to be... You can catch this episode along with the rest of them…
 
After careful analysis of orbital data, gravitational forces, and several other factors, NASA’s OSIRIS-REx team calculated the risk of a collision with near-Earth asteroid Bennu to be %0.057 through 2300.

Vandi also describes the complex process …
 
Based on X-ray detections from the Neil Gehrels Swift Observatory, scientists used the Chandra X-ray Observatory and found rings called light echoes moving out from a black hole and its companion star, reflecting off the surrounding dust clouds. Plus, solving the puzzle of the Sun and using glassy nodules to find a meteorite impact.…
 
NASA’s TESS spacecraft, which is primarily used to search for exoplanets, has now observed a veritable symphony of pulsating red giant stars, each with their own internal vibrations.

She joins the show to talk about the advantages of various types of nuclear propulsion, the engineering and policy …
 
Alexander Winn will be getting a closer look at some of the most often-overlooked features of Uranus & Neptune: their moons and rings. While the planets themselves posed quite a challenge to spot in the night sky, their moons can be much trickier. Luckily, it's a breeze in this scenario. You can catch this episode along with the rest o f them on Yo…
 
Two new studies have possibly identified regions on the Moon’s surface that could contain pieces of the lunar mantle, which would be possible sample targets for the Artemis mission.
