Astronomy News with The Cosmic Companion Podcast - Interview with Dr. Nahum Arav April 21, 2020

Hello everyone:

In this week's episode of Astronomy News with The Cosmic Companion, we discuss the birth of a giant space cigar, and look at a planet that may look like home but which is found in dangerous territory. We will examine a pair of satellite galaxies orbiting the Milky Way, and learn what they can teach us about dark matter. Finally, we will see how astronomers can learn about the history of exoplanets through resonances in planetary orbits..

I also interview Dr. Nahum Arav, astronomer at Virginia Tech, who discovered the most powerful quasar tsunamis ever seen anywhere in the Cosmos. Watch the video version of this episode (interview in podcast only):

Next week (April 21), The Cosmic Companion talks to Dr. Steven D’Hondt, geomicrobiologist from the University of Rhode Island, who led a 2010 expedition collecting core samples from beneath the seafloor of the South Pacific, research that could help researchers today, looking for signs of life on Mars.
