This week, we are joined by Dr. Oskar Elek from the University of California, Santa Cruz. We will be discussing his work seeking to understand the Cosmic Web – the largest structures in the Universe – through computer modeling and humble slime mold.
We'll also take a look at the future of farming on Mars, as a new study examines how to turn Martian topsoil into a fertile growing medium for Martian colonists of the future. We will examine the origin of water on planets, and find clues to the chemistry of the early Solar System in a Martian meteorite. And, in the dark recesses of the early solar system, we see an ancient ice planet that may have forever shaped our family of planets before heading out to the void of space.--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/the-cosmic-companion/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/the-cosmic-companion/support
