Astronomy News with The Cosmic Companion Nov. 26, 2019

This week, we take a look at how astronomers and astrophysicists are perplexed by different values obtained when measuring the expansion rate of the Universe, one of the most important numbers needed to determine the past and present behavior of the Cosmos. We also examine how the angle at which planets spin could affect their chances of developing life, and the discovery of a complex sugar inside an asteroid may help explain how life developed on Earth.

Dr. Lucy Ziurys, professor of astronomy at the University of Arizona, and Dr. Tom Zega of the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory

In addition, on this podcast of Astronomy News with The Cosmic Companion, I also interview Dr. Lucy Ziurys, professor of astronomy at the University of Arizona, and Dr. Tom Zega of the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory about their recent discovery showing how C60, or buckyballs, can form in space. Hear them tell the story about how they used a microscope to simulate conditions around a dying star, and what it could mean for the search for life around other stars.Keep checking back at: thecosmiccompanion.com for more space and astronomy news, including my new video series of this podcast!
