George’s Random Astronomical Object Ep. 41: BoBn 1

Brief biographgy: George Bendo is an astronomer who specializes in studying interstellar dust and star formation in nearby galaxies.  He currently works at the Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics at the University of Manchester, and his primary role is to support other astronomers using the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA).  He has been creating biweekly episodes of George’s Random Astronomical Object since 2019. www.randomastronomicalobject.com The audio was recorded and edited by George Bendo.  The music is Immesion by Sascha Ende (www.sascha-ende.de), which is distributed by filmmusic.io under a CC 4.0 attribution license.  The sound effects are from The Freesound Project at www.freesound.org.

Astronomy Cast Ep. 597: The Expansion of the Universe

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LR794Yqm-aI It's been a while since we checked to make sure the Universe was still expanding. Yeah, apparently, that's still a thing. But in the last few years powerful new telescopes and expansive surveys have given us much more knowledge about what's happening. Especially at the earliest times.
