Brief bio of the podcaster: Allen is an amateur astronomer, an IT professional, a podcaster, a father of five beautiful kids and a barely competent chess player. He is also the director of the Citizen Science Section of the Astronomical Society of South Africa, where he promotes the uptake of Citizen Science among South African amateur astronomers.

Rank #7: Weekly Space Hangout - Guest: Col. Mike Mullane, Astronaut

Podcast cover
Read more

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWnyNroTMtQ

Host: Fraser Cain ( @fcain )Special Guest: This week we are excited to welcome Colonel Mike Mullane to the Weekly Space Hangout. Mike was selected as a Mission Specialist in 1978 in the first group of Space Shuttle Astronauts. He completed three space missions aboard the Shuttles Discovery (STS-41D) and Atlantis (STS-27 & 36) before retiring from NASA and the Air Force in 1990.

Mike grew up during the space race and in the late 1950’s embarked on his own rocket experiments in the deserts near his home. In 1967, he graduated from West Point and was commissioned in the United States Air Force. As a Weapon Systems Operator aboard RF-4C Phantom aircraft, he completed 134 combat missions in Vietnam.

Mike holds a Master’s of Science Degree in Aeronautical Engineering from the Air Force Institute of Technology and is also a graduate of the Air Force Flight Test Engineer School at Edwards Air Force Base, California.

Mike was inducted into the International Space Hall of Fame and is the recipient of many awards, including the Air Force Distinguished Flying Cross, Legion of Merit, and the NASA Space Flight Medal.

Since retiring from NASA, Colonel Mullane has written an award-winning children’s book, "Liftoff! An Astronaut’s Dream", and a popular space-fact book, "Do Your Ears Pop In Space?" His memoir, "Riding Rockets: The Outrageous Tales of a Space Shuttle Astronaut", has been reviewed in the New York Times and on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart. It was also featured on Barnes and Noble’s 2010 recommended summer reading list.

Mike has held a lifelong passion for mountain climbing, averaging nearly 500 miles per year of backpacking in the mountains of the West. Since age 60 he has summited Africa’s highest peak, Mt. Kilimanjaro; the glaciered peak of Mt. Rainier; and forty of Colorado’s 14,000-foot peaks.

You can learn more about Mike by visiting his website at https://mikemullane.com/

- Sadly, we have to say goodbye to Apollo 15 command module pilot Al Worden.

- The Cradle of Aviation Museum cancel their Apollo 13 anniversary event, but you can relive Apollo 13 (recreating the launch from 11th April) as if you were in mission control with  https://apolloinrealtime.org/13/

- A couple of Awesome Astronomy live-stream shows at 8pm on Thursday 16th and Monday 27th April. Because, let’s face it, you’re not going to be busy!

The News: Rounding up the astronomy news this month we have:

- The European Southern Observatory’s new behemoth telescope takes a step closer.

- An exoplanet found to be raining iron.

- 139 new minor planets found in our own outer solar system.

- Observing material at the event horizon around our supermassive black hole.

- Could life actually be viable on planets around red dwarf stars after all?

- An update on the recent dimming of Betelgeuse.

Main News story: A full discussion on the impact of social distancing and economic depression on professional astronomy.

Twitter tweets & shout outs!

The Sky Guide: This month we’re taking a look at the constellation of Leo with a guide to its history, how to find it, a couple of deep sky objects and a round up of the solar system views on offer in April.

A guide to the electromagnetic spectrum: (Sorry about Jen's noisy audio…) In this series we take a look at the electromagnetic spectrum, what, it is, what is shows us and why it’s so important to astronomers. This month we explain the microwave part of the spectrum and its relevance to astronomy.

Q&A: Do you think C/2019 Y4 (ATLAS) is going to be bright enough to be spotted with the naked eye? From our good friend Raffael de Palma in Italy.

Podcast cover

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=td7xHgwPQyQ

Streamed live on May 6, 2020.

Host: Fraser Cain ( @fcain )Special Guest: This week we welcome Dr. Pascal Lee to the Weekly Space Hangout. Pascal is chairman of the Mars Institute, planetary scientist at the SETI Institute, and director of the NASA Haughton-Mars Project (HMP) at NASA Ames. He holds an ME in geology and geophysics from the University of Paris, and a PhD in astronomy and space sciences from Cornell.

Pascal’s research focuses on water and caves on the Moon and Mars, the origin of Mars’ moons, and the future human exploration of the Moon and Mars. He has led over 30 expeditions to the Arctic and Antarctica for analog studies, including a 402-day winter-over in Antarctica. He is a recipient of the United States Antarctic Service Medal.

He also works on surface systems for future Moon and Mars exploration, including drones, hoppers, rovers, spacesuits, and habitats. Pascal was scientist-pilot for NASA’s first field test of the SEV concept pressurized rover. He also led the Northwest Passage Drive Expedition, a record-setting vehicular traverse on sea-ice along the fabled Northwest Passage and the subject of the award-winning documentary film Passage To Mars (2016). He currently leads the HMP’s Astronaut Smart Glove project and JPL’s GlobeTrotter planetary hopper concept study.

Pascal is also interested in SETI. He argues that there are likely very few advanced civilizations per galaxy, and that we might be the only one in ours at this time.

His first book, Mission: Mars, won the 2015 Prize for Excellence in children’s science books from the AAAS. In his free time, Pascal likes to be walked by his dog Apollo, fly, and paint. He is an FAA helicopter commercial pilot and CFI, and an artist member of the International Association of Astronomical Artists.

Rank #12: Everyday Einstein - Betelgeuse, Betelgeuse, Betelgeuse! Is A Familiar Star About To Explode?

Podcast cover
Read more

We think of the night sky as reliable and unchanging. The sun sets every evening revealing the same stars found in familiar patterns throughout the year. Those patterns are so predictable, in fact, that we use them to orient ourselves here on Earth.

This steadiness is a result of the timescales required for any particular step in the stellar evolution process. It takes millions, even billions, of years for stars to live out their lives. In our lifetimes, we see only a snapshot of their life story. From the star’s perspective, we are but a tiny blip in the timeline.

So when a star changes on timescales we can actually observe, this change is big news. And that's why right now, all eyes are on Betelgeuse.

Published on Dec 13, 2019. Ever wonder what’s going to happen to the outer planets of our solar system when the Sun turns into a red giant star? Will they survive or will the get flung out into space? Will Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune evaporate? This week astronomers found some clues to these questions from observations of a white dwarf that appears to have a planet at least twice as large as the star itself.

Podcast cover

https://youtu.be/83YR00X_wCw

Host: Fraser Cain ( @fcain )Special Guest: This week we are pleased to welcome Dr. Fred Watson ( @StargazerFred / http://www.fredwatson.com.au ) to the WSH. Fred is Australia’s first Astronomer-at-Large, an outreach and advocacy role within the Commonwealth Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources. He is graduate of the universities of St Andrews and Edinburgh, and worked at both of Britain’s Royal Observatories before joining the Australian Astronomical Observatory as Astronomer-in-Charge in 1995.

Recognised internationally for helping to pioneer the use of fibre optics in astronomy during the 1980s, Fred is best known today for his award-winning radio and TV broadcasts, books, music and other outreach ventures. He holds adjunct professorships in several Australian universities, and was made a Member of the Order of Australia in 2010. He has an asteroid named after him (5691 Fredwatson), but says that if it hits the Earth, it won't be his fault.

His latest book, Exploding Stars and Invisible Planets, was published by Columbia University Press in January.

You can follow Fred on Twitter at @StargazerFred
