Atmospheric tidal waves maintain Venus’ super-rotation, NASA’s Swift mission tallied water from interstellar Comet Borisov, and interview with Patrick Peplowski about MESSENGER at Venus

The Daily Space

Images from the Akatsuki spacecraft unveil what keeps Venus’s atmosphere rotating much faster than the planet itself, for the first time, NASA’s Neil Gehrels Swift Observatory tracked water loss from an interstellar comet as it approached and rounded the Sun, and then we have an interview with Patrick Peplowski about what they've learned about MESSENGER visiting Venus.

Crew Dragon to be crewed May 27, impacts on asteroids make regolith, Comet Borisov lends insights, and the California Nebula gloriously ends Spitzer Mission

The Daily Space

The first flight of NASA astronauts from U.S. soil in nearly nine years finally has a launch date: May 27. The impact of small bodies hitting an asteroid pulverizes its surface, making new regolith, while seismic shaking produced by the impact causes older regolith to move downhill and fill already existing craters. Studies of a comet from beyond our Solar System have yielded insights into how other star systems may have formed, and the California Nebula is the final mosaic image taken by Spitzer.

NSF - Comet Borisov Imaged By Gemini

The 365 Days of Astronomy

Comet Borisov is the second small object discovered as it passes through our solar system. Studying these interstellar visitors can tell us about where they originated and the similarities and differences they hold with our own solar system. Recently the Gemini Observatory imaged Comet Borisov. In this podcast, Dr. Meg Scwhamb discusses Comet Borisov and the recent imaging campaing. Dr. Meg Schwamb is currently a lecturer (equivalent of an Assistant Professor in US/EU system) in the Astrophysics Research Centre (ARC) and the School of Mathematics and Physics at Queen's University Belfast (QUB) in the UK. She is interested in the fundamental questions of how our Solar System and others formed and evolved as well as exploring the process of planet formation. Her expertise is in big data for planetary astronomy, focusing in particular on studying the small body populations in the Solar System, exploring seasonal processes on Mars, and applying citizen science to mine large datasets for Solar System science. https://nationalastro.org/ https://nationalastro.org/news/take-ii-on-an-interstellar-comet/ https://www.nytimes.com/2019/12/07/science/interstellar-comet-2i-borisov.html Rob Sparks is a science education specialist in the EPO group at NOAO and works on the Galileoscope project (www.galileoscope.org), providing design, dissemination and professional development.

That weirdly large (potential) black hole, Mars Dust Towers, and Comet Borisov reminder

The 365 Days of Astronomy

In this episode we do a deep dive into the news about a possible 70ish solar mass black hole in our galaxy and discuss why it could (but might not be correct), and what that means. As a palate cleanser, we take a taste of Mars dust storms, and provide a reminder about the intersteller comet, Borisov.
