The observations represents the most distant supermassive black hole ever detected. *Rare glimpse of the magnetic field around a black hole A sudden flare and cooling of gas has given astronomers a rare glimpse of the magnetic field around a black hole. The findings indicate the gravity well’s magnetic field is far weaker than expected. *Massive primordial galaxies discovered swimming in a vast ocean of dark matter Astronomers have been astounded by the discovery of two massive primordial galaxies swimming in a vast ocean of dark matter near the dawn of time – just 780 million years after the big bang. The findings are forcing scientists to go back to the drawing board to explain how such massive objects could have formed so soon after the universe was born 13.8 billion years ago. *Strange clouds discovered in the Milky Way A new cosmic map of high velocity gas clouds has uncovered several within the Milky Way which are moving in a different direction to the rest of the galaxy. The findings raise questions about the mysterious clouds origins.

Stream episodes on demand via www.bitesz.com (mobile friendly) *New evidence shows the Earth got a bigger beating than thought A new study suggests the early Earth may have been subjected to five times as many impact events as previously thought -- following the big one which formed the Moon. The findings were revealed in new models of the planet’s impact history based on its mineral composition. *A new contender in the fight to understand dark matter The road to understanding dark matter is littered with failed hypothesis. MACHOS are dead, and WIMPS are a no show so far. So, say hello to Strongly Interacting Massive ParticleS or SIMPS. *New mission to search for life on the Saturnian moon Enceladus Russian physicist and entrepreneur Uri Milner is backing a new private venture to search for the building blocks of life around the Saturnian ice moon Enceladus. Breakthrough Initiatives -- a program founded by the billionaire tech investor is now workshopping the idea which would take over from where NASA’s Cassini mission left off. *Plate tectonic activity on Europa New computer simulations indicated that the Jovian ice moon Europa may have plate tectonics similar to Earth. The findings could have important implications for providing chemical nutrients to any potential life forms in the ocean beneath the moon’s frozen surface. *December Skywatch We check out the night skies of December – not only was there another so called supermoon – but the source of this month’s Geminids meteor show – the asteroid 3200 Phaethon makes its closest approach to Earth in 40 years. *The Science Report New study confirms male circumcision and antiviral drugs dramatically reduce HIV-AIDS infections.

Stream episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com (mobile friendly) *Infant stars discovered near supermassive black hole Astronomers have discovered 11 newly formed infant protostars where they shouldn’t exist – right next to the monstrous supermassive black hole at the centre of our galaxy. The findings have shocked scientists as regions around black holes are wracked by powerful gravitational tidal forces and bathed in intense ultraviolet and X-ray radiation -- generating extremely harsh conditions which shouldn’t favour star formation. *Rosetta gives a recipe for making a comet. Scientists have developed the recipe for making a comet. The findings based on data from the Rosetta spacecraft provides the first quantitative analysis of the chemical elements that make up the cometary dust of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. *Buccaneer in stable orbit Mission managers at the University of New South Wales say the Buccaneer satellite has attained stable orbit and is operating nominally. Buccaneer was deployed aboard the joint NASA-NOAA JPSS-1 weather satellite mission which flew from Space Launch Complex 2W at the Vandenberg Airforce base in California last month. *Russian Rocket launch failure after wrong co-ordinates programmed Russia’s second launch from its shiny new Vostochny cosmodrome in country’s far east has ended in a multi-million-dollar disaster losing the mission’s 19 satellites. Early indications point to the wrong settings being programmed into the Soyuz Fregat upper stage booster causing the mission to crash and burn. *The latest on North Korea’s new Hwasong-15 Intercontinental ballistic missile Pyongyang’s new images showing its new Hwason-15 missile far more than just an improvement in design over the Hwasong-14 flown in July. The new missile gives North Korea an effective range of over 13,000 kilometres -- enough to hit most of the continental United States east coast, as well as Europe and Australia. *The Science Report The link between the amount of time between pregnancies and Autism Spectrum Disorder in children. A new way of turning Carbon dioxide emissions from power plants into potential fuels. Claims of a new cure for baldness. Elon Musk wins his bet to build the world’s biggest battery in under a hundred days. Bad news for bigfoot fans.

Thank you… Stream episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com (mobile friendly) *The universe before the big bang A new hypothesis is proposing to eliminate the need for cosmological spacetime singularity and with it the big bang which kicked of the cosmos 13.8 billion years ago. Instead, physicists suggest the universe’s current expansion phase was preceded by a big crunch contraction and possibly a bouncing universe with infinite prior cycles of expansion and contraction. *The next nearest planet to our solar system A temperate Earth-sized planet has been discovered just 11 light-years away. The new world named Ross 128 b is currently the second-closest temperate planet ever detected – the nearest being Proxima b which orbits the star Proxima Centauri some 4.25 light years from Earth. *Dawn explores Ceres’ interior evolution Scientists have begun studying the internal structure and composition of the dwarf planet Ceres finding a close relationship between its internal evolution and its surface features. The findings used data collected by NASA’s Dawn spacecraft to analyse Ceres’ surface features revealing clues about the dwarf planet’s interior evolution. *Blue Origin to Launch its New Glenn Rocket in 2020 Blue Origin claims its massive heavy lift New Glenn rocket should be ready for its maiden flight in 2020. The New Glenn is a two or three stage orbital launch vehicle capable of carrying 45 tonnes into low Earth orbit and 13 tonnes to geostationary transfer orbit. *The Science Report North Korea has successfully launched its most powerful intercontinental ballistic missile. Autism sufferers have problem reading human emotions because of altered chemical responses. Big Sugar covering up the harmful health effects of too much sugar since the 1960s.

Now would be a good time to get into audible and help this podcast. Thank you… Stream episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com (mobile friendly) *New questions about dark matter and dark energy A new study is raising fresh questions about dark matter and dark energy -- two of the most mysterious and least understood features in the universe. A new hypothesis attempts to explain both the accelerating expansion of the universe and the movement of stars in galaxies without needing to draw on the concepts of dark matter and dark energy. *Murchison Widefield Array construction completes phase two The Murchison Widefield Array has reached a key milestone in its ongoing development, with the completion of its phase two expansion. The work which has taken nearly 16 months, includes 128 new antenna stations at the observatory site in outback Western Australia. *Is antimatter the hidden face of lightning Terrestrial Gamma Rays Flashes produced in lightning from thunderstorms can also generate antimatter. New research claims Terrestrial Gamma Rays Flashes react with the air to produce radioisotopes and positrons -- the antimatter counterpart of electrons. *Trojan Martian asteroids created by sunlight A new study claims some of the trojan asteroids orbiting with Mars could have been created by sunlight. While many of the Sun’s family of planets have trojans – Mars is the only terrestrial planet known to have trojans in stable orbits. *China 14th rocket launch for 2017 China’s busy rocket launch program is still in top gear with it 14th launch for 2017 blasting in to orbit. The latest mission – the third for the month -- involved a Long March 2C rocket flying from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in southwestern China’s Sichuan province. *The Science Report Earth about to enter a mild La Nina weather pattern either in late December or early 2018. 40 per cent of adolescents with food allergies are experiencing frequent allergic reactions. Energy drinks linked to frequent dental problems. Air pollution linked to poorer quality sperm. Drinking coffee is more likely to benefit health than to harm it.

91: Recurring Martian Streaks could be just sand rather than water - SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 20 Episode 91
Stream episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com (mobile friendly) *Recurring Martian Streaks could be just sand rather than water A new study claims dark streaks often seen on the Sun facing slopes of Martian gullies and ravines could be caused by moving sand rather than melting sub-surface permafrost. The conclusions provide an alternative to previous speculation that the features – known as recurring slope lineae or RSLs – were caused by flowing meltwater from permafrost layers seeping out from the sides of gullies and ravines. *Could cosmic dust be transporting life between worlds? A new study suggests that life on Earth might have originated from biological particles brought to the planet in streams of cosmic dust particles. The findings would mean fast-moving flows of interplanetary dust that continually bombard Earth’s atmosphere could deliver tiny organisms from far-off worlds, or send Earth-based organisms to other planets, according to the research. *Listening for alien signals. Way back on August the 15tjh 1977 astronomers at Ohio State University’s Big Ear radio telescope supporting the SETI Search for ExtraTerrestrial Intelligence picked up a strange and very strong narrow band radio signal coming from the direction of the constellation Sagittarius. Now a new campaign is underway to listen for alien signals – not from Sagittarius but from M-31 Andromeda. *NASA Launches NOAA Weather Satellite to Improve Forecasts The penultimate launch of a Delta II rocket has successfully placed the first of a new generation of advanced weather satellites into a Sun synchronous orbit. The Joint Polar Satellite System-1 or JPSS-1 blasted into deep black early morning skies from the Vandenberg Air Force base in California. *Maxus-9 provides a little microgravity The European Space Agency has launched a Maxus sounding rocket to see how microgravity effects microorganisms. The mission which blasted off from Sweden’s Esrange Space Center-- flew on a sub-orbital ballistic trajectory delivering its five onboard experiments to the edge of space. *The Science Report A new weapon in the fight against peanut allergies. The link between mother’s weight during pregnancy and life-threatening childbirth complications. Just like people new studies show Budgies sweat. NASA finds a mantle plume deep below Antarctica's Marie Byrd Land. Health experts urging governments to consider suing big tobacco over public health costs.

Stream episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com (mobile friendly) *More clues about our interstellar visitor Astronomers have released new details about a mysterious interstellar visitor which sped through our solar system during September and October. The new observations show the object -- known as 1i/2017 U1 -- measures some 180 by 30 meters and is shaped like a fat cigar, half a city block long. *Why the star Regulus is almost ripping apart A new study of the star Regulus indicates it’s almost spinning fast enough to literally rip itself apart. The findings reported in the journal Nature Astronomy show the star has a spin rate of 96.5 per cent of its angular velocity needed for break-up. *Another gravity wave discovery from merging black holes Scientists have confirmed another detection of gravitational waves generated by the collision of two stellar mass back holes. This latest detection involved the merger of two relatively light black holes, with 7 and 12 times the mass of the Sun -- a billion light years away. *Pluto’s freezer explained A new study of Pluto’s atmosphere may explain why the dwarf planet at the outer rim of the solar system is so much colder than predicted. The findings indicate a novel cooling mechanism controlled by haze particles could account for Pluto’s frigid atmosphere. *Pulsars ruled out of antimatter excess Scientists have ruled out two nearby pulsars as possible sources for a mysterious excess of anti-matter particles discovered near Earth. In 2008, astronomers observed an unexpectedly high number of positrons -- the anti-matter counterparts to electrons -- in orbit just a few hundred kilometres above the planet. *The Science Report Explaining why people with autism find it difficult to look directly at other people Claims salty diets may raise blood pressure by killing off gut bacteria.

The discovery by NASA’s Dawn spacecraft suggests that the 945 kilometre wide world may have once had a global ocean and may still have liquid today. *The Rochechouart Astrobleme Geologists have begun an intense core drilling campaign at Rochechouart in central France to study an astrobleme. The Rochechouart Astrobleme is thought to be the remains of a 20 to 30 kilometre wide 207 million year old impact crater. *New clues to the origin of life on Earth Chemists at The Scripps Research Institute have found a compound that may have been a crucial factor in the origins of life on Earth. Origins-of-life researchers have hypothesized that a chemical reaction called phosphorylation may have been crucial for the assembly of three key ingredients in early life forms: *Antares launches Cygnus bound for the International Space Station A Cygnus cargo ship has successfully launched aboard an Antares rocket bound for the International Space Station. The Cygnus OA-8 blasted off from Orbital’s Wallops Island launch pad on the Virginian mid-Atlantic coast on a two-day journey to the orbiting outpost. *Orbital launches Minotaur-C rocket Orbital has launched a Minotaur-C rocket from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California carrying ten new satellites into orbit. The launch system was renamed Minotaur from its original name of Taurus following a series of spectacular launch failures which darkened the Taurus name. The Taurus XL became the Minotaur C, while the Taurus II was renamed the Antares. *The Science Report Eating at night associated with higher risk of heart disease and diabetes.

Stream episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com (mobile friendly) *The star that wouldn’t die Astronomers have discovered a zombie star that that appears to have risen from the grave. The strange star appears to have somehow survived its initial brush with death to undertake a second supernova explosion fifty years later. *Hunting dark photons Scientists are searching for signs of new particles that might help fill in some big blanks in sciences understanding of the universe. The new research is hunting for the hiding places for one type of theorized particle known as the dark photon - that was proposed to help explain the mystery of dark matter. *The link between a galaxy’s shape and its spin. Astronomers have discovered a link between a galaxies shape and how fast it rotates. The findings follow the recent discovery by a separate team linking a galaxy’s rotation in a galactic cluster to its mass rather than the density of the surrounding cluster. . *Juno completes its eighth orbit of Jupiter NASA’s Juno spacecraft has successfully completed its eighth swoop down towards the swirling cloud tops of Jupiter -- the solar system’s largest planet. Confirmation of the successful orbit was delayed by several days due to solar conjunction at Jupiter, which affected communications during the days prior to and after the flyby. *Rare white dwarf-brown dwarf binary studied Astronomers have studied a rare White Dwarf – Brown Dwarf binary star system which has shown them how some stars can be demoted into white dwarfs by their companion star’s feeding frenzy. The system is among the lowest mass stellar objects ever observed. *Vega launches new Moroccan spy satellite A Vega rocket has successfully launched a new Moroccan spy satellite. The Mohammed VI-A is the first of two new top secret optical imaging high resolution surveillance satellites being built for the Kingdom of Morocco. *The Science Report Western Australian coral bleaching event now the world’s worst ever.

A report claims the dust ring’s detection could point to a significant planetary system around the star. *Why massive galaxies don't dance in crowds A new study has discovered that the rotational movement of a galaxy in a galactic cluster is determined by its mass rather than galactic density. The findings are based on a detailed study of over than 300 galaxies. *Introducing the quarksplosion Scientists have discovered the quarksplosion -- a blast that could be eight times more powerful than any thermonuclear bomb. Physicists have discovered that fusing two sub atomic elementary particles -- known as beauty or bottom quarks -- could result in the creation of a new primary particle, a secondary particle known as a nucleon and the release of huge amounts of energy -- some eight times more -- than a nuclear fusion reaction. *Powering Enceladus active ocean Heat from friction could power hydrothermal activity on Saturn's moon Enceladus for billions of years if the moon has a highly porous core. The new findings helps resolve a question scientists have grappled with for a decade: Where does the energy to power the extraordinary geologic activity on Enceladus come from? *One of the oldest objects in the universe Astronomers have discovered one of most distant galaxies ever seen dating back some 12.8 billion years. The findings provide new insights into the early history of the universe. *SpaceX make it 16 in a row SpaceX has just launched its 16th rocket this year – new record for the California company which has now flown the Falcon 9 more times than any other launch service provider has flown any other rocket.

The 400 metre wide newly discovered asteroid or comet has been designated A/2017 U1. *Asteroid Itokawa’s violent past Samples of the Asteroid Itokawa indicate the 500 metre wide space rock has had a violent history. The samples were collected by Japan’s Hayabusa spacecraft in 2005. *Rosetta’s comet provides missing link in planet formation Scientists have confirmed that planets are created by small particles of matter coming together over time to form progressively larger and larger bodies. The findings provide an important missing link in sciences understanding of how planets are formed. *Galaxies wobble at the centres of galaxy clusters Existing models on dark matter claim the super dense cores of the largest galaxy clusters contain massive galaxies with so much dark matter that that they never move. However new observations have shown that this density is much smaller than predicted, and that the galaxies at the centres of these clusters do move -- or at least wobble. *Yellowstone spawned twin super-eruptions that altered global climate Scientists have discovered that the last eruption of the Yellowstone super volcano was a double header event with two massive explosions spaced just 170 years apart. The findings are based on an analysis of volcanic ash which spewed from Yellowstone during the super eruptions 630 thousand years ago. *The Science Report New findings indicate European drought trends are lining up with climate change projections. Evidence that a huge carnivorous dinosaur roamed southern Africa 200 million year ago. Over 100 genetic risk factors linked to asthma, hay fever and eczema.

Stream episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com (mobile friendly) *Filling the early universe with knots could explain why it’s three-dimensional Have you ever wondered why your ear bud wires, ropes, garden hoses, even knitting yarn tend to get all knotted and jumbled up. Well, a team of scientists think it’s a basic cosmic characteristic – which may just explain why we live in a universe with three spatial dimensions. and it may even explain how the universe formed. *Titan’s noxious ice clouds Scientists have discovered a toxic band of high altitude ice clouds above the south pole of Saturn’s largest moon Titan. The noxious stratospheric cloud cover was detected floating about 160 to 210 kilometres above the surface -- far higher than the methane rain clouds in Titan’s troposphere. *Whatever happened to the Beagle 2 A new scientific paper looking at the discovery of Britain’s Beagle 2 Mars lander has been published in the open science journal of the Royal Society. The findings detail efforts to locate the 32 kilogram probe which disappeared after being deployed from the European Space Agency’s Mars Express orbiter on December 19 2003. *New study looking at the Top Quark Physicists at CERN are joining forces to study the most massive elementary particle known. The top quark is almost as massive as an atom of gold, but is far less understood than other quarks. *Virgin Galactic’s hopes to reach space this year Virgin Galactic says it’s VSS Unity spaceplane should reach space before the end of the year. The announcement follows a series of six successful release drop and glide tests involving the 8 seater air launched spacecraft. *Another space station planned for the Moon Bigelow Aerospace and the United Launch Alliance have announced plans to place a B330 inflatable habitat module into lunar orbit by 2022 using United’s new Vulcan rocket. The B330 will serve as a low Lunar orbit staging post for planned missions to the Moon. *Australian Sky and Telescope Jonathan Nally from Australian Sky and Telescope magazine tells us about the mysteries of neutron stars, the sad fate of the world’s largest refractor telescope, and how to spot fake photos. *The Science Report New studies confirm intermittent fasting works to reduce weight and improve metabolic performance.

Stream episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com (mobile friendly) *First evidence of Quantum fluctuations in deep space Evidence of a strange quantum effect first predicted in the 1930 may have been detected by astronomers studying the light emitted from an extraordinarily dense and strongly magnetised neutron star The polarisation of the observed light suggests that the empty space around the neutron star is subject to a quantum effect known as vacuum birefringence. *Out of control Chinese space station about to crash back to Earth China has confirmed that its Tiangong-1 orbiting space lab is out of control and likely to re-enter the Earth's atmosphere at any moment. Beijing says the eight and a half tone orbiting outpost is expected to re-enter the atmosphere between now and April next year -- depending on orbital decay rates. *Back to the Moon US Vice President Mike Pence has called on NASA to return humans to the Moon. The call comes in the wake of Russia’s announcement that it will join the United States in building the new Deep Space Gateway space station which will be positioned in near lunar space. *How a cold frozen Mars could have carved the planet’s warm wet features Scientists say periodic melting of ice sheets on a cold early Mars would have created enough water to carve the ancient valleys and lakebeds seen on the surface of the red planet today. Water-carved valleys and lakebeds leave little doubt that water once flowed on the surface. *The first detailed spectra of antimatter hydrogen Scientists with the ALPHA Collaboration have successfully obtained the first detailed spectrum of the antimatter counterpart of hydrogen. The findings reported in the journal Nature show that the spectral lines of antihydrogen match those of normal hydrogen. *Sentinel-5P launch The European Space Agency’s new Sentinel 5P Earth observation satellite has successfully blasted into orbit aboard a Russian Rockot rocket from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome north of Moscow.

79: A possible cradle of life discovered on Mars - SpaceTime with Stuart Gary
Stream episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com (mobile friendly) *A possible cradle of life discovered on Mars Evidence of massive ancient sea floor hydrothermal vent deposits have been discovered on Mars. Hydrothermal vents found on the mid ocean ridges of Earth, pump a rich chemical soup into the surrounding oceans, which many scientists believe could be where life on Earth began. *Chemical signatures for life discovered near and far Freon-40, a chemical signature of life has been detected -- both around a distant star -- and much closer to home – in a comet orbiting the Sun. The discovery includes the first ever detection of a saturated organohalogen chemical compound in interstellar space. *Cosmic rays from distant galaxies A fifty year long debate has finally been resolved with confirmation that the highest energy cosmic rays originate from sources far beyond our galaxy. The findings are based on the uneven distribution of high energy cosmic rays bombarding the Earth from different positions across the sky. *Mysterious Dimming of Tabby's Star May Be Caused by Dust Astronomers say a large cloud of dust remains the most likely cause for the mysterious changes in brightness effecting Tabby’s Star. The star became famous 2015, when astronomers looking through data from NASA’s planet hunting Kepler Space Telescope reported strange irregular changes in the amount of light coming from the star. *The Science Report Nations with a higher standard of living also have higher rates of cancer. Summer Arctic sea ice could disappear completely because of human induced climate change. Autism less common among the kids of mums who took multivitamins during pregnancy. Neandertal genes in Homo Sapiens contributed to skin tone, hair colour, sleep patterns, and mood. The first map of Old Faithful’s subsurface geology.

78: Narrowing down on Dark Energy - SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 20 Episode 78
Stream episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com (mobile friendly) *Narrowing down on Dark Energy A new study looking at pressure waves generated in the primordial universe has revealed possible evidence of dynamical dark energy. The potential discovery means dark energy could behave differently from the cosmological constant model first proposed by Professor Albert Einstein a hundred years ago to allow his general theory of relativity to work in cosmology. *Strange comet like binary asteroid discovered A strange comet like asteroid first discovered more than a decade ago has turned out to actually consist of two asteroids orbiting each. The findings represent the first known binary asteroid also classified as a comet. *More evidence that mega eruptions caused the great dying A team of scientists has found new evidence that the Great Permian Mass Extinction event 250 million years ago, was caused by the massive volcanic eruptions of the Siberian Trap. Known as the great dying – the Permian Mass Extinction killed over 90 percent of all species on Earth. *Deep Space Gateway gains more support Russia has agreed to work with the United States, Europe and Japan in developing the DSG or Deep Space Gateway – a new space station to be built near the Moon. The Deep Space Gateway will be constructed in a Near-Rectilinear Halo Orbit which is a Lagrange point between the Earth and Moon where the gravity of both celestial bodies balances out allowing an object to remain in position orbiting the Earth with the Moon. *Gravitational Wave discovery wins Nobel Prize The 2017 Nobel Prize in physics has been awarded to Professors Barry Barish, Kip Thorne and Rainer Weis for their ground breaking work to detect gravitational waves. The team observed gravitational waves generated by the cataclysmic collision of two black holes 1.3 billion light years away. *UNSW to build three new Australian Defense Department satellites The University of New South Wales has won a contract to build three new cubesats for the Australian Air Force for two low Earth orbit space missions for maritime surveillance, and to help protect Australian space systems from orbital debris. The first will launch early next year followed by the second in 2019. *The Science Report Major Australian cities will hit summer temperatures of over 50 degrees Celsius within a few years. Gay and bisexual men making under $30,000 a year are five times as likely to attempt suicide. Kids bullied at school have a far higher risk of developing mental health problems.

The new discovery was a combined effort between the existing LIGO Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory detectors in Livingston, Louisiana, and Hanford, Washington together with the New European VIRGO detector near Pisa in Italy. *Discovery of a pitch black planet that eats light. NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has observed a planet outside our solar system that looks as black as fresh asphalt because it eats light rather than reflecting it back into space. This light-eating prowess is due to the planet's unique capability to trap at least 94 percent of the visible starlight falling into its atmosphere. ^New Pluto mission proposal NASA has received a new proposal for a surface mission to Pluto. The new plan would follow on from the highly successful New Horizons spacecraft which undertook an historic close flyby of Pluto its binary partner Charon, and their five moons back in July 2015. *New Earth Observation satellite The CSIRO has joined a project developing and operating one of the world’s most sophisticated Earth observation satellites. The 430 kilogram Synthetic Aperture Radar remote sensing satellite – known as the NovaSAR -- will launch later this year on an Indian PSLV rocket. *NROL-42 spy satellite launched An Atlas V rocket has blasted into orbit from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California carry a secret National Reconnaissance Office satellite. The NROL-42 mission blasted off into black late-night skies which seemed more than appropriate for such a clandestine flight. *Russian Navigation satellite launched Russia has launched the latest member of its Glonass satellite navigation system.

The new agency will co-ordinate strategic long term plans supporting domestic aerospace industries currently worth over four billion dollars -- but which are often uncoordinated and fragmented, often developing similar competing systems. *Discovery of the nearest supermassive black hole binary Astronomers have detected the nearest ever binary supermassive black hole system. The twin monsters which are separated by only one light year -- were located just 400 light years away in a spiral galaxy named NGC 7674. *Fast Radio Bursts could be very common A new study claims mysterious nanosecond flashes of intense energy known as Fast Radio Bursts of FRBs may be firing off every second. When FRBs, were first discovered by the Parkes Radio Telescope in 2001, astronomers had never seen anything like them before. *End of the world prediction wrong again In case you missed it, the world was supposed to end last Saturday according to Christian end of the world theorist David Meade – but it looks like he was wrong and consequently so were all the sheeple who believed him. Meade was claiming that an apocalyptic planet called Nibiru would collide with the Earth destroying all life. *The Science Report The largest study ever undertaken of the human microbiome.

Molecules brought to Earth in meteorite strikes could potentially be converted into the building blocks of DNA. A report in the Chemical Communications claims researchers found that organic compounds, called amino nitriles, the molecular precursors to amino acids, were able to use molecules present in interstellar ice to trigger the formation of 2-deoxy-D-ribose -- the backbone molecule, , of DNA. *The mysterious night side of Venus The winds and upper cloud patterns on the night side of Venus have been characterised for the first time- giving scientists some surprising results. A report in the journal Nature Astronomy claims the atmosphere on Venus’ night side behaves very differently to that on the side of the planet facing the Sun -- exhibiting unexpected and previously-unseen cloud types, morphologies, and dynamics -- some of which appear to be connected to features on the planet’s surface. *WASP 19B an inferno world with titanium skies Astronomers have detected titanium oxide in an exoplanet atmosphere for the first time. The findings reported in the journal Nature show the planet’s atmosphere contains small amounts of titanium oxide, as well as water and traces of sodium, alongside a strongly scattering global haze. *Charmonium surprise at the Large Hadron Collider The LHCb experiment at the world largest atom smasher – the Large Hadron Collider has surprised physicists by providing unprecedented precision measurements of the masses of two charmonium particles – something never previously achieved at a hadron collider – and until recently thought impossible. Until now, precise research into charmonium particles required the construction of dedicated experiments to examine this invaluable source of insights into the subatomic world. *Dragon splash down A SpaceX Dragon cargo ship has splashed down in the Eastern Pacific Ocean southwest of Long Beach California carrying just under two tonnes of equipment and completed science experiments from the International Space Station. The capsule contained a numerous technological and biological experiments including a team of astronaut mice taking part in micro gravity experiments. *The Science Report A new study estimates there are over two billion species of life on planet Earth at the moment. Warming oceans causing faster Antarctic glacial melt. Women with coronary heart disease are less likely to achieve treatment targets than men. Livestock reserve land providing a haven for native plant species. The rare state of matter in which electrons in a superconducting crystal organize collectively.

The findings are part of a new understanding of the Earth’s composition, which will help scientists develop new methods to determine if exoplanets orbiting distant stars are likely to be capable of supporting life. *New supernovae study reframes the Dark Energy debate A new study claims the accelerating expansion of the universe may not be real, but could just be an apparent effect. The study claims the fit of Type Ia supernovae to a model universe with no dark energy appears to be very slightly better than the fit for the standard dark energy model. *Curiosity climbing a Martian ridge NASA's Mars Curiosity rover has begun the steep ascent up an iron-oxide-bearing ridge that's grabbed scientists' attention since before its arrival on the red planet in 2012. The Vera Rubin Ridge stands prominently on the north western flank of Mount Sharp, resisting erosion better than the less-steep portions of the mountain below and above it. *Expedition 53 Launches to the International Space Station The Russian Soyuz MS-06 capsule carrying the Expedition 53 crew has successfully docked with the International Space Station as both spacecraft flew 400 kilometres above the southern Pacific Ocean off the coast of Chile. The docking with the station’s Space facing Russian Poisk module took place six hours after the Soyuz FG rocket launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in in the central Asian republic of Kazakhstan on a fast rendezvous flight path. *Russian Proton launch It’s been a busy time for Russia with a Proton-M rocket successfully launching from the Baikonur Cosmodrome carrying the Amazonas-5 telecommunications satellite into geostationary transfer orbit. The mission was only the third for the Proton since its return to flight status following its latest grounding following a string of recent failures. *The Science Report New research has discovered that patients with age-related macular degeneration carry signs of the disease in their blood.

The spacecraft is undertaking a gravity assist slingshot manoeuvre, designed to build up speed and modify its trajectory to eventually intercept the half kilometre wide asteroid 101955 Bennu, which has a 1-in-2700 chance of hitting the Earth in the next 200 years. *Jupiter's auroras present a powerful mystery Scientists on NASA's Juno mission have observed massive amounts of energy swirling over Jupiter's polar regions which are contributing to the gas giant’s powerful aurorae - only not in ways the researchers expected. Juno observed signatures from powerful electric potentials, aligned with Jupiter's magnetic field, and accelerating electrons toward the Jovian atmosphere at energies up to 400,000 electron volts. *Mapping the family tree of stars Astronomers are borrowing principles applied in biology and archaeology to build a family tree of the galaxy’s stars. By studying chemical signatures found in the stars, they’re piecing together these evolutionary trees looking at how the stars formed and how they are connected to each other. *SpaceX launches X-37B spaceplane SpaceX has launched a U.S. Air Force X-37B space shuttle on a classified military mission. The flight was the fifth for the reusable winged spaceplane, and the first to use the Falcon 9 rather than the usual United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket. *The Science Report New links discovered in white matter structure in the brains of kids with autism and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.

Check out the details at https://www.patreon.com/spacetimewithstuartgary * New theories on the formation of primordial black holes Mysterious long hypothesized objects known as primordial black holes may have made the universe the way it is today. The claims speculates that these enigmatic black holes from the beginning of time formed before the first stars, and later helped create many of the heavier elements found in nature including gold, platinum, and uranium. *Tabby’s star probably just dusty rather than an alien megastructure A new analysis of a strange looking star which experiences wild fluctuations in brightness indicates massive amounts of dust could be causing the phenomenon. The spectral type F main white sequence star KIC-8462852 first sprung to attention in 2015 when citizen scientists looking through data from NASA’s planet hunting Kepler Space Telescope noticed abnormal cycles of dimming and brightening coming from the star. *And How the world’s biggest volcanoes formed Scientists have solved a 168 year old mystery on how the planet’s biggest and most active volcanoes were formed. The study found the Hawaii’s volcanoes formed along twin tracks due to a shift in the Pacific plates direction three million years ago. *Indian rocket failure An Indian rocket has failed to place a new navigation satellite into orbit after the payload faring failed to separate during the launch. The PSLV-C39 mission blasted off normally from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre on the Bay of Bengal coast carrying the IRNSS-1H payload – the eight satellite for the Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System. *Expedition 52 crew return to Earth The Soyuz MS-04 capsule carrying three expedition 52 crew members has successfully returned to Earth after 135 days in orbit. The spacecraft touched down under the canopy of a massive orange and white parachute in clear blue skies on the wind swept Kazakhstan step. *The Science Report Adults who have poor sleep patterns are more likely to be overweight or obese. Tropical cyclones and hurricanes will get worse in the Pacific because oceans are warming due to climate change. North Korea successfully tests a thermonuclear bomb capable of being fitted to the warhead of an ICBM. Scientists discover human footprints on Crete dating back some 5.7 million years.

The findings reported in the Astrophysical Journal represent one of the deepest ever observations into the 13.8 billion year old universe. *Cassini begins its final orbits around Saturn NASA's Cassini spacecraft has entered new territory in its final mission phase, the grand finale, as embarks on a set of ultra-close passes through Saturn's upper atmosphere with its final five orbits around the ringed world. Cassini completed the first of these five passes over Saturn on Monday. *The ancient Earth was a water world A new analysis of mineral grains indicates that the ancient Earth was most likely a water world -- barren, flat, and almost entirely under water with only a few small islands sticking out above the surface. The findings are based on a study of 4.4 billion year old zircon mineral grains preserved in sandstone rocks in the Jack Hills of Western Australia – which are among the oldest fragments of the Earth ever found. *High velocity stars speeding through the galaxy Astronomers using the European Space Agency’s Gaia satellite have discovered six high velocity stars that appear to have been flung out from the galactic centre by close encounters with the Milky Way’s supermassive black hole. The findings reported in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society could provide scientists with key information about some of the most obscure regions of the Milky Way galaxy. *Astronomers revised their projections about asteroid 2012 TC4 An asteroid which could have missed the Earth by as little as 6800 kilometres will now fly by the planet at a more comfortable distance of 44 thousand kilometres. The 15 to 30 metre wide space rock will pass the Earth on October 12. *The Science Report It’s official, 2016 was the hottest year on record, and climate change caused by anthropological greenhouse gas emissions is to blame. New study finds increasing vitamin B3 intake dramatically reduce the risk of miscarriage and multiple births defects. Humans may have left Africa and arrived in Southeast Asia 20,000 years earlier than previously thought. A new record for fastest light pulse. A new study into the domestication of the modern dog.

63: An Earth-like atmosphere may not survive Proxima b's orbit - SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 20 Episode 63
Stream episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com (mobile friendly) * An Earth-like atmosphere may not survive Proxima b's orbit Proxima B -- the nearest known exoplanet to our solar system is probably a dead world despite being in the habitable zone of its host star Proxima Centauri. Any Earth sized world would most likely be unable to hold onto an atmosphere -- leaving its surface exposed to harmful stellar radiation and reducing its potential for habitability. *New clues in determining the size of a black hole Astronomers have discovered what could be an easy way to determine the size of a spiral galaxy’s supermassive black hole. They’ve found a direct relationship between the geometry of some types of spiral galaxies and the hidden super massive black hole at their centres. *Calm seas on Titan could mean smooth landing for future space probes Astronomers have determined that the lakes and seas on the Saturnian moon Titan have few waves higher than a centimetre. The findings mean the giant moon probably has little wind – the primary driving force for waves on the oceans of Earth. *Huge storm on Neptune Astronomers have detected a massive storm as big as the Earth on the distant planet Neptune. This massive 9000 kilometer wide storm system was found in Neptune’s equatorial region – a zone where no bright clouds have ever been seen before. *Skywatching on the road The neat little portable telescopes you can take with you when you’re travelling. *The Science Report Loneliness and social isolation poses a greater public health hazard than obesity Man-made climate change to cause 60,000 deaths globally in the year 2030 People who survive a stroke without early complications have increased risk of death, another stroke or heart attack for at least 5 years, Two remarkably different animal communities around two relatively nearby hydrothermal deep sea vents Humans can identify emotions in the voices of all air-breathing vertebrates.

The study based on evidence of the iron 60 isotopes in meteorites indicate that a supernova shock wave is still the most-plausible origin story for explaining the short lived radioactive isotopes in our Solar System *A new window in the hunt for molecular signatures in deep space Astronomers have begun using one of the precursor radio telescopes for the Square Kilometre Array project to study molecular signatures which could lead to the detection of complex molecules that are precursors to life. The team are using the Murchison Widefield Array to undertake the observations focusing on the molecular gas and dust clouds from which new generations of stars are born. *New clues about superluminous supernovae Astronomers have detected an extraordinarily bright supernova in a surprising location. This supernova discovery challenges current ideas of how and where such super-charged supernovas occur. *Vega lofts two satellites on second launch this year An Arianespace Vega rocket has successfully launched two satellites into orbit. The mission blasted off into late night skies from the European Space Agency’s Kourou Space Port in French Guyana. *Western fears grow as Iran and North Korea conduct illegal missile tests Sanctions have been placed on both North Korea and Iran after the two rogue nations carried out new missile tests over the past few weeks. Most attention has focused on North Korea which has carried out numerous missile tests in recent months the other member of the so-called axis of evil – Iran -- has also continued its own missile program with a launch on July 27th in breach of United Nations security council resolution 2231. *The Science Report It may be too late to stop the planet heating up by two degrees, How drinking alcohol could improve your memory, A new expedition to an undersea continent east of Australia, New research into melanoma, How cats domesticated themselves – when they were ready.

The 40 metre wide asteroid won’t hit the Earth this time – but it will be about as close as possible while still passing safely. *The mystery of the cosmic cold spot deepens Astronomers are still at a loss to explain a giant cosmic cold spot in their large-scale maps of the universe. A new study has ruled out the most likely suspect – a gigantic supervoid – leaving the door open for more exotic explanations like a collision between universes. *Evidence the Higgs turns into quarks There’s new evidence that the Higgs Boson decays into smaller elemental quark particles. Physicists with the Atlas experiment at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider are reporting the decay of the Higgs into a pair of bottom quarks – one of six types or flavours of quark particle. *New crew arrive on station A Russian Soyuz rocket has blasted into orbit carrying three new crew members bound for the international space station.

New Satellite readings indicate that numerous volcanic deposits spread across the lunar surface contain unusually high amounts of water compared with surrounding terrains. The findings mean there could be as much water in the lunar mantle was what there is in mantle basalts on Earth. *Dark Matter more likely to be cold rather than fuzzy Scientists trying understand dark matter now believe it’s far more likely to be big and cold rather than light and fuzzy. The new findings are based on a study of the intergalactic medium – the stuff that fills the vast, largely empty space between galaxies. *Countdown to Cassini's Grand Finale After nearly 13 years in orbit around Saturn, the international Cassini–Huygens mission is now reaching the end of its journey. Cassini’s final dramatic suicidal death plunge into Saturn's atmosphere will occur on September 15. *Jupiter Great Red Spot in infrared As scientists continue to examine data from the recent Juno spacecraft flyby over Jupiter’s iconic Great Red Spot, astronomers have used the infrared imager on the Gemini North Telescope in Hawaii to study the solar system’s largest planet in a new light-- revealing particles over a range of different altitudes.

The unexpected findings contradict prevailing opinions that the very early universe would have been undergoing a period of rapid growth turning huge clouds of pristine molecular gas into stars and galaxies at rates thousands of times greater than what we see in the local universe today. *New particle that’s its own antimatter particle After an 80 year long quest, scientists have finally discovered the Majorana fermion, a particle that’s its own antiparticle. The discovery was made during a series of lab experiments on exotic materials. *Jupiter’s Great Red Spot likely a massive heat source Jupiter’s Great Red Spot may be the mysterious heat source behind the planet’s surprisingly high upper atmospheric temperatures. The findings could explain why temperatures in Jupiter’s upper atmosphere are comparable to those found at Earth, yet Jupiter is more than five times further away from the Sun than the Earth is. *India’s new Earth Observations satellite India has launched a new Earth observation satellite.

The star -- called EBLM J0555-57Ab -- was detected in a triple star system located some 600 light years away in the Southern Hemisphere constellation Pictor the painter. *New brown dwarf discovered Citizen scientists have helped NASA identify a never before seen Brown Dwarf. The discovery is the first was made as part of NASA’s Backyard Worlds: Planet 9 citizen science project. *Why black holes only come two sizes A new study may have finally answered a question which has been puzzling astronomers and physicists for half a century – namely why black holes only seem to come in two sizes -- stellar mass and supermassive. What’s happened to all the intermediate sized black holes – those with a few thousand times the Sun’s mass. Now a new study has come up with a possible answer – time. *Strange signals from outer space Astronomers at the Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico have detected strange signals originating from a nearby star system. The mysterious radio signals appear to be coming from Ross 128 a small red dwarf star about 11 light years away. *The Larsen C trillion tonne iceberg A one trillion tonne iceberg - one of the biggest ever recorded -- has calved away from the Larsen C Ice Shelf in Antarctica. The 5800 square kilometre chunk of ice – now named A68 – is twice the size of the Australian Capital Territory, as large as the US state of Delaware and contains twice the volume of Lake Erie, one of the Great Lakes. *SpaceX launches its heaviest geostationary orbital payload yet A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket has successfully launched the heaviest payload ever carried by the company into geostationary orbit.

The imager aboard NASA’s Juno mission snapped pictures of the most iconic feature of the solar system’s largest planetary inhabitant during its July 10 flyby. *Astronomers probe the swirling halo of a spectacular starburst galaxy Astronomers have probed a nearby starburst galaxy which is making stars five times faster than the Milky Way. The unprecedented study focused on the Sculptor Galaxy NGC 253 which is 11.5 million light-years from Earth and undergoing a period of intense star formation. *More evidence supporting the likely existence of a ninth planet There’s been more evidence supporting the likely existence of a ninth planet in our solar system. The Hypothesis for a potential planet nine in the dark outer reaches of the solar system first came to light in 2014 following the discovery of unusual orbits for several trans Neptunian objects in the Kuiper belt. Then in 2016 astronomers concluded the strange orbits were likely caused by the gravitational perturbations of a large body -- about four times size and ten times the mass of Earth. *Soyuz-2.1А Launch Vehicle with KANOPUS-V-IK Satellite Russia has launched a Soyuz rocket carrying some 73 satellites into orbit in one go.

New data indicates MU69 may actually be less than 20 kilometres wide. Furthermore it may actually be a binary system or even a swarm of smaller bodies left from the time when the planets first formed. *First ever supermassive black hole binary discovered Astronomers have for the first time ever discovered two supermassive black holes orbiting each other in a single galaxy. The detection provides new clues about the process of galaxy mergers and galactic evolution. *Earth's magnetic field reveals one of its secrets Scientists have identified previously unknown patterns in the Earth's magnetic field which seems to evolve over time scales on the order of a thousand years. The pattern -- known as paleomagnetic secular variation -- provides new insights into how the planetary magnetic field works by adding a measure of predictability to changes in the field not previously known. *Russia’s busy launch schedule Russia has been making up for lost time – and missions – since last year’s grounding of its Proton Rocket with no less than six launches in recent months. Included in the manifest was a Soyuz flight carrying crew to the International Space Station and the launch of a top secret Russian military satellite.

Fastest stars in the galaxy are all aliens - SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 20 Episode 53
Thank you to our growing Patreon group. Your support is very much appreciated…and welcome to the team. You can help support SpaceTime, by becoming a patron...and we have rewards for you. Do your bit to keep Stuart fed and housed... details at our Patreon page... https://www.patreon.com/spacetimewithstuartgary *Fastest stars in the galaxy are all aliens A new study has concluded that fast moving stars in our galaxy were originally alien stars from other galaxies which were cannibalised by the Milky Way. The new study claims a large population of very fast moving stars in the Milky Way, originally started out in the neighbouring satellite galaxy the Large Magellanic Cloud. *Why quasars suddenly twinkle violently Gas filaments surrounding stars like the strands of a pompom appear to be causing quasars to suddenly begin to violently twinkle. The findings reported in the Astrophysical Journal could finally provide scientists answer for the 30 year old mystery. *China’s new super rocket the Long March 5 experiences a major crash and burn The launch of one of China’s most powerful rocket’s the Long March 5 has ended in failure with the launch vehicle experiencing what Chinese media would only describe as an anomaly about six minutes into the flight. The mission – which launched from the Wenchang Space Centre on Hainan Island off the southern coast of China -- was the second only orbital flight for the new launch vehicle -- which was to be a showcase for Beijing’s growing space ambitions. *Seventh Arianespace launch of the year Arianespace has successfully undertaken its seventh launch this year. The Ariane 5 carried two telecommunications satellites into orbit from the European Space Agency’s Kourou space port in French Guiana. *Dragon returns The SpaceX Dragon CRS 11 capsule has splashed down successfully in the North Pacific Ocean following a month long stay docked to the International Space Station. It was the first time a previously used Dragon capsule had undertaken a second mission – an achievement which will dramatically improve the economics of commercial spaceflight. *Why humans are hard wired to see the haunting face on Mars The now famous Face on Mars is one the most iconic images ever taken of the surface of the red planet. It’s now well understood to be nothing more than the result of the interplay of lights and shadows on an eroded hill. But the science behind why people see it as a humanoid face is fascinating.

One of the big problems String theory or more correctly M theory has over loop quantum gravity is its need for additional dimensions beyond the three special and one temporal we see in spacetime around us. *Largest virtual Universe ever simulated Scientists have simulated the formation of the Universe using a supercomputer. The gigantic catalogue of about 25 billion virtual galaxies has been generated in preparation for the European Euclid mission which will launch in 2020 to study dark matter and dark energy. *And Brightest pulsar ever seen Astronomers have discovered a new record holder for the brightest pulsar ever found. The newly discovered pulsar record holder – called NGC 5907 ULX – is located some 50 million light years away – making it also the most distant pulsar ever seen. *July SkyWatch One of the highlights of the night skies in July is the arrival of three meteor showers. The Southern Delta Aquariids which are visible from mid July to mid August -- the Northern Delta Aquarids which start in July and reach their peak in August – and the Alpha Capricornids which start in mid July.

The blast devastated 2150 square kilometers of forest leaving some 80 million trees flattened and reduced to matchwood and lit up the night skies in London -- a third of the way around the globe. *The effects of a major asteroid impact on Earth A new study has concluded that when a big asteroid hits the Earth violent winds and shock waves are likely to cause the greatest number of fatalities. The study explored seven effects associated with asteroid impacts--heat, pressure shock waves, flying debris, tsunamis, wind blasts, seismic shaking and cratering. *NASA’s mission to the metallic world of Psyche NASA’s Discovery mission to a unique metallic asteroid, has been moved up by a year with the launch now slated for the middle of 2022. The earlier launch date means a more efficient trajectory – bringing the planned arrival time forward to 2026 -- four years earlier than the original timeline. *Einstein right again A little more than 100 years after Professor Albert Einstein developed his theory of general relativity, researchers have finally been able to use its laws to directly determine the mass of a white dwarf star by the gravitational bending of light. In a 1936 paper in Science, Einstein lamented that there was no hope of directly determining a white dwarf’s mass by this method – even though theoretically it should be possible. *Japanese H-IIA satellite launch A Japanese H2A rocket has blasted into orbit carrying the nation’s second Quasi-Zenith Satellite navigation system spacecraft. Lift off for the Michibiki-2 satellite occurred under cloudy skies at the Tanegashima Space Centre south of Tokyo.

The study challenges sciences current understanding of how massive galaxies form and evolve early in the history of the universe. *New dark matter hypothesis Astronomers trying to understand dark matter may have a lot more work to do if a new hypothesis -- claiming there is more than one type of dark matter particle – is correct. Dark matter is a mysterious invisible substance thought to make up some 80 percent of all the matter in the universe. *How the Milky Way Galaxy makes antimatter Faint supernova explosions -- caused by the merging of dead stars known as white dwarfs -- could explain how most of the antimatter in the Milky Way galaxy is created. The findings also mean the excess of gamma ray emissions detected in the galactic centre can be explained without the need to postulate dark matter annihilation scenarios to explain the observations. *New mission to study the space between the stars NASA is today slated to launch its newest mission to study the interstellar medium -- the space between the stars. NASA’s new mission called the Colorado High-resolution Echelle Stellar Spectrograph -- or CHESS – is slated to blast off from the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico aboard a Black Brant IX suborbital sounding rocket. *China launches its first space based x-ray telescope China has launched its first space based X-ray telescope designed to survey the Milky Way and study celestial x-ray sources such as neutron stars, black holes and supernovae. The Hard X-ray Modulation Telescope was flown into orbit aboard a Long March 4B rocket from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Centre in the Gobi Desert of inner Mongolia.

The study also found some tantalizing hints that even far more distant supernovae may have changed human evolution forever. *Hundreds of new planets discovered Scientists using NASA's planet hunting Kepler space telescope have announced the discovery of hundreds of new exoplanets – planets orbiting stars other than the Sun. The 219 new exoplanetary candidates, brings the total number discovered by Kepler to a staggering 4 thousand and 34. *Quark-gluon plasma detected during proton-proton collisions. Scientists studying collisions in the world’s largest atom smasher have detected hints of an extreme state of matter called a Quark Gluon plasma – some of the first material to form in the big bang 13.8 billion years ago. The observation is the first time Quark-Gluon plasma has been created through proton-proton collisions. *Stratolaunch shows off its new mega aircraft Stratolaunch has shown off its new mega plane – a giant twin fuselage six engined aircraft designed to launch rockets into space.

Stream Episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com or www.spacetimewithstuartgary.com (both mobile friendly) * Rare meteorites challenge our understanding of the solar system Astronomers may need to revise sciences current understanding of the early solar system following the discovery of rare minerals in ancient meteorites. The new findings mean the history and evolution of the solar system may have been somewhat different from what scientists previously thought. *The volcano that almost wiped out the human species still alive and active A new study has concluded that the Toba super volcano which almost wiped out the human species 74 thousand years ago – is still alive and active today. The report has warned that the rare but spectacular eruptions of super volcanoes experience ongoing, smaller eruptions for tens of thousands of years after the initial event. *New evidence of frost on Moon's surface Scientists using data from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter have identified bright areas in craters near the Moon's south pole cold enough to have lunar surface frost. The new findings are based on an analysis that combined surface temperatures with information about how much light is reflected off the moon's surface. *No Universe without the big bang Professor Albert Einstein’s relativity theory tells us that the curvature of spacetime was infinite at the time of the big bang 13.8 billion years ago. The problem is sciences mathematical understanding breaks down at that point of singularity. Now scientists have tried to take that a step further. *Ariane 5 launches its heaviest payload ever An Ariane 5 rocket has carried its heaviest yet payload launch into orbit.

New clues as to why matter dominates over antimatter - SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 20 Episode 46
Stream Episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com or www.spacetimewithstuartgary.com (both mobile friendly) * New clues as to why matter dominates over antimatter Scientists have found evidence for a weak preference for matter over antimatter. While the discovery is far too small to provide any real proof of an imbalance between the way matter and antimatter act, it might provide the first tantalizing clues of some new physics beyond the Standard Model -- to explain why the universe appears to be made up mostly of matter -- rather than antimatter. *Detecting new types of gravitational waves A team of astrophysicists have proposed that permanent scars left in the fabric of SpaceTime by gravitational waves could be used to study exotic hypothetical cosmic events such as primordial black holes and one-dimensional defects in space known as cosmic strings. The study identifies a new concept which the authors are calling orphan memory. *Cassini finds Saturn’s moon might have been tipped over Saturn’s ice moon Enceladus may have been knocked onto its side in an ancient collision early in its history. The new findings are based on observations by NASA’s Cassini spacecraft which found evidence that the moon’s spin axis -- the line through the north and south poles -- has reoriented, possibly due to a collision with a smaller body, such as an asteroid. *New discovered planet hotter than most stars Astronomers have found a Jupiter sized exoplanet hotter than the surface of most stars. A report in the journal Nature indicates that the planet KELT-9b has a day side surface temperature of 4,600 Kelvin – only 1200 degrees cooler than the surface of the Sun. *Expedition 51 return to Earth The two man Expedition 51 crew from the International Space Station have returned safely to Earth aboard their Soyuz MS-03 capsule. Their spacecraft undocked 3 hours and 20 minutes before touchdown as the orbiting outpost flew at 28 thousand kilometres per hour 400 kilometres above the Mongolian-Chinese border.

Stream Episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com or www.spacetimewithstuartgary.com (both mobile friendly) *Third gravitational wave detection Astronomers have confirmed that gravitational waves from colliding black holes have been detected for a third time. Gravitational waves are ripples in the fabric of space-time caused by events such as the collision or merger of very massive objects such as black holes and neutron stars. *Juno mission reveals a whole new Jupiter The first science results from NASA’s Juno mission are portraying Jupiter as a complex and turbulent world, with Earth-sized polar cyclones, and plunging storm systems travelling deep into the planet’s heart. Scientists also found that the solar system’s largest planet has a mammoth, lumpy magnetic field that may indicate it was generated closer to the planet’s surface than previously thought. *Halos discovered on Mars widen time frame for potential life NASA’s Curiosity rover has detected high concentrations of silica halos in bedrock – indicating that the red planet had liquid water much longer than previously thought. The new findings dramatically widen the time frame for potential Martian life to have evolved.

The newly discovered object appears to be either a very rare type of supernova – or more likely -- an outburst from a second supermassive black hole closely orbiting the primary, central supermassive black hole. *A new look at the dinosaur killing asteroid impact event Over the years on SpaceTime and its predecessor StarStuff – we’ve reported several times on how the KT boundary event asteroid impact -- which caused the extinction of all dinosaurs other than birds -- may not have been quite so deadly -- had it hit just about anywhere else on the planet. Now, a new study takes a deeper look. *The truth about Unidentified Flying Objects The idea of alien’s visiting Earth with evil designs in their fiendish minds is one of the staples of modern science fiction.

Magnetic bridge linking galaxies - SpaceTime with Stuart Gary S20E40
Stream Episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com or www.spacetimewithstuartgary.com (both mobile friendly) * Magnetic bridge linking galaxies Astronomers have detected a magnetic field associated with the Magellanic Bridge, the filament of gas stretching 75,000 light-years between the Milky Way Galaxy’s nearest galactic neighbours -- the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds. The findings provide the first ever detection of a magnetic field in the bridge and may provide clues to how it’s formed. *New clues about the origins of brown dwarfs Astronomers have discovered a spectacular extended jet blasting almost a lightyear out from a young brown dwarf. The discovery provides new insights into the origins of brown dwarfs, supporting the emerging picture that these sub stellar objects form in the same way stars do. *Astronomers produce the largest map of the Universe ever made Astronomers with the Sloan Digital Sky Survey have created the first map of the large-scale structure of the universe based entirely on the positions of quasars. The new findings are consistent with Albert Einstein’s theory of general relativity. *India launches locally built satellite India has launched a new locally built telecommunications satellite.

The study demonstrates the fine line which separates brown dwarfs from the smallest stars and the largest planets. *Ancient impact events linked to long-lived volcanic eruptions on Earth Major asteroid, comet, and meteorite impact events on Earth have been linked to significant long term volcanic eruptions. The new findings show that cosmic impact events can trigger intense, long-lived, and explosive volcanic eruptions which change a planet’s surface and climate by bringing up material from deep below. *Moon Landing conspiracy theories In July 1969 humans landed and walked on the surface of Moon for the first time. Yet even now almost half a century later some 20 percent of people still believe it was all a big hoax. We try to find out why – and set the record straight.

The findings could help astronomers better understand the strange gravitational dynamics around stellar mass black holes. *A new study of Gamma-ray flashes emanating from tropical storms Scientists have discovered that a storm’s size and intensity doesn’t affect its production of terrestrial gamma-ray flashes – some of the highest energy event generated on Earth. NASA scientists analysed dozens of terrestrial gamma-ray flashes launched by the largest and strongest weather systems on the planet: tropical cyclones, storms, hurricanes and typhoons. *Scientists create negative mass Physicists have created a fluid with negative mass – which they claim is exactly as mind bending as it sounds. It means that unlike just about everything else in the universe -- if you push it – instead of moving in the direction being pushed – it moves in the exact opposite direction.

The Milky Way’s mysterious gamma ray glow solved - SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 20 Episode 35
Stream Episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com or www.spacetimewithstuartgary.com (both mobile friendly) *The Milky Way’s mysterious gamma ray glow solved A mysterious gamma-ray glow coming from the centre of the Milky Way is most likely caused by a sea of pulsars. The findings cast doubt on previous ideas that the glow might be evidence of dark matter -- a mysterious invisible substance that accounts for 85 percent of all matter in the universe -- but which has so far evaded detection. *Gravitationally lensed supernova Astronomers have discovered their first gravitationally lensed thermonuclear supernova. The new observations provide new ways of studying the accelerating expansion of the Universe due to a mysterious force called dark energy – as well as gravity and distribution of a mysterious substance called dark matter across the cosmos. *Cassini finds big empty close to Saturn NASA’s Cassini scientists say the region between Saturn and its rings is relatively dust free. However, the discovery made during Cassini’s first plunge inside the rings has come as somewhat of a surprise. *SpaceX launches its first spy satellite SpaceX has successfully launched its first top secret spy satellite for the National Reconnaissance Office. It was a case of second time lucky for the classified payload after a faulty first stage liquid oxygen temperature sensor detected an anomaly the previous day resulting in the launch being scrubbed.

The new launch vehicle is based on Beijing’s existing Dong Feng 31 intercontinental ballistic missile with its usual one megaton thermonuclear warhead replaced with a satellite payload.

Cassini’s grand finale going out in a blaze of glory - SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 20 Episode 23
Stream Episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com or www.spacetimewithstuartgary.com (both mobile friendly) *Cassini’s grand finale going out in a blaze of glory NASA’s Cassini spacecraft which has been orbiting the Saturnian system since 2004 will officially end its mission with a suicidal death plunge into the ringed world on September 15, this year. As part of its end game mission managers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena California have begun sending the probe on riskier more adventurous missions. *Could Fast Radio bursts be powering alien ships The search for extraterrestrial intelligence has looked for many different signs of alien life, from radio broadcasts to laser flashes, without success. However, a new study that the mysterious phenomena known as fast radio bursts could be evidence of advanced alien technology. *Scientists make the case to restore Pluto's planet status A group of scientists are proposing a new definition for a planet. The current definition was formulated after observations indicated larger worlds existed beyond Pluto in the dark reaches of the Kuiper Belt. *Dinosaur asteroid spawned a mountain range taller than the Himalayas’ A new study claims the asteroid impact 66 million years ago -- which led to the extinction of all dinosaurs other than birds – also spawned a giant mountain range taller than the Himalayan Mountains today. New computer simulations of the Chicxulub impact event show the initial rebound of the Earth crust from the impact of the 10 to 15 kilometre wide asteroid would have temporarily produced what scientists call a ring peak – a mountain range inside the crater. Similar structures are seen commonly seen in craters on the Moon as well as on other bodies throughout the solar system. *Launch of Delta IV Rocket Carrying WGS-9 US Air Force Satellite A Delta 4 rocket has successfully blasted off from the Cape Canaveral air force base in Florida carrying a new military satellite into orbit. The first Delta 4 mission for 2017 carried the US Air Force space command’s Wideband Global Satcom WGS-9 telecommunications satellite.

Early Galaxies dominated by ordinary rather than dark matter - SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 20 Episode 22
Stream Episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com or www.spacetimewithstuartgary.com (both mobile friendly) *Early Galaxies dominated by ordinary rather than dark matter A new study has found that early galaxies were dominated by ordinary matter rather than the dark matter which dominates galaxies today. The findings mean dark matter – which makes up around 80 percent of all the matter in the universe today – was far less influential in massive, star-forming galaxies during the peak epoch of galaxy formation, 10 billion years ago. *How ghostly neutrino particles could improve sciences understanding of the universe A new study claims one type of neutrino may comprise exactly equal amounts of two other types of neutrinos. The findings by scientists working with the IceCube Neutrino Observatory at the South Pole could help physicists better understand the universe. *Earth probably began with a solid shell A new study claims Earth probably began as a single solid shell which broke apart later to form the planet’s characteristic individual tectonic plates. The findings could help settle a longstanding debate about the origins of plate tectonic on Earth. *Dragon returns to Earth, concluding tenth resupply mission. The SpaceX CRS-10 Dragon cargo ship has splashed down safely in the North Pacific Ocean off the Californian coast. 320 kilometres south west of Long Beach. The capsule was loaded with over two tonnes of experiments and equipment being returned to Earth from the International Space Station. *New Telecommunications satellite launched Following an earlier delay due to high winds, SpaceX has successfully launched a new telecommunications satellite into orbit. The spectacular night time launch from space launch complex 39A at the Kennedy Space Centre at the Cape Canaveral Air Force base in Florida was the third Falcon 9 launch of the year and the second off the historic former Space Shuttle and Saturn 5 Apollo moon rocket era launch pad.

The team made the remarkable find while observing a young remote galaxy located some 13.3 billion light years away. *NASA’s mission to Jupiter’s ice moon Europa NASA has formally named its next mission to the Jovian ice moon Europa “The Europa Clipper”. The mission which is slated for launch around 2022 will explore the frozen world which possesses all three of the ingredients necessary for life: liquid water, chemical nutrients, and energy sources sufficient to enable biology. *A perfect storm of fire and ice may have led to snowball Earth Scientists have a new hypothesis to explain what caused the largest glaciation event in Earth's history, known as 'snowball Earth' – a runaway glaciation that covered the planet in ice from pole-to-pole. *The Super Earth 55 Cancri e The exoplanet 55 Cancri e is 40 light years away and orbits its host star so closely it has two faces. Because it is tidally locked to its star – the side facing the star is covered in molten lava – while the opposite side is in perpetual night and freezing cold.

Black Hole Dark Matter hypothesis disproved - SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 20 Episode 19
Stream Episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com or www.spacetimewithstuartgary.com (both mobile friendly) *The Black Hole Dark Matter hypothesis disproved A new study has provided strong evidence disproving the idea that unknown populations of ancient black holes could explain the effects currently attributed to dark matter. The findings imply that the detection of gravitational waves generated by colliding intermediate mass black holes can’t be used to imply the existence of huge populations of primordial black holes early in the history of the universe. *New evidence of a water rich history on Mars New research on Martian meteorites indicates that the red planet may have been a far wetter place than previously thought. The findings provide the first clear evidence that a mineral commonly found in Martian meteorites which was considered proof of an ancient dry environment on Mars -- may have originally been a hydrogen-containing mineral -- that could indicate a far more water-rich history for the Red Planet. *Stephen Hawking’s warning of alien invasion Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking says while he believes intelligent alien life probably does exist elsewhere in the universe – making contact with them could be as disastrous for humans as Christopher Columbus’s arrival in the new world was for native Americans. He made the comments during the launch of his new documentary Stephen Hawking's Favourite Places. *New American Spy satellite launched A new top secret spy satellite has been successfully launched into orbit for America’s National Reconnaissance Office. The NROL-79 mission is believed to involve a pair of classified Naval Ocean Surveillance System INTRUDER Satellites.

The decision follows problems with two helium check valves on the spacecraft main propulsion system. *Falcon 9 launch from historic pad A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket has made history blasting off from Launch Complex 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. That’s the same launch pad previously used by the mighty Saturn V Apollo moon rocket and the space shuttle fleet.

New dates for the early solar system - SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 20 Episode 13
Stream Episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com or www.spacetimewithstuartgary.com (both mobile friendly) *New dates for the early solar system A new study has confirmed that the solar system and its major planets were formed within the first four million years of the Sun’s birth. The findings, reported in the journal Science place the most precise date yet on the solar system’s early evolution and the length of time the system’s protoplanetary disk was present. *Black hole sets a feeding record A giant black hole has ripped apart a star and gorged on its remains for over decade -- more than 10 times longer than any previously observed episode of stellar death by black hole. The process known as a tidal disruption event occurs when the tidal forces due to the intense gravity from a black hole destroys an object -- such as a star -- that wanders too close. *India’s new world record launching 104 satellites at once. India’s first launch for 2017 has set a new world record carrying 104 small satellites in to orbit on a single rocket. The Indian Space Research Organisation’s PSLV or Polar Satellite Launch vehicle blasted off from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre on the coast of the Bay of Bengal.

It wasn’t the result of some alcohol fuelled orbital bender but rather preparation for a new mission focusing on these mysterious rarely seen phenomena associated with upper atmosphere electrical discharges. *New questions about Martian Water New evidence about carbon dioxide levels on ancient Mars have raised fresh questions about how liquid water could have existed on the red planet’s surface billions of years ago. An analysis of samples -- taken by NASA’s Curiosity rover -- indicates Mars didn’t contain enough CO2 for liquid water to have existed in Gale Crater – despite clear geological evidence that it was there for long periods of time. *Earth’s oxygen levels increased when the planet became of snowball Oxygen levels on Earth increased dramatically after the planet was covered in massive ice sheets forming a snowball Earth hundreds of millions of years ago. The increase in atmospheric oxygen levels allowed the development of complex life forms which eventually led to us. *Neutron star missing link discovered A mystery object could be the long sort after missing link between rapidly spinning pulsars and high magnetic magnetars. The strange object appears to be in a transition phase between the two different types of neutron stars.

Stream Episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com or www.spacetimewithstuartgary.com (both mobile friendly) *The Milky Way’s stolen stars New studies have confirmed that some of the most distant stars in our Milky Way galaxy were stolen from neighbouring galaxies. The findings are based on a study of 11 distant Milky Way stars -- all located about 300,000 light-years away and well beyond the Milky Way's spiral disk. *The Moon is much older than we thought The Earth’s Moon is at least 4.51 billion years old – that’s between 40 million and 140 million years older than previously thought. The findings are based on a new analysis of zircons found in lunar minerals brought back to Earth by the Apollo 14 mission in 1971. *New telescope chip offers clear view of alien planets Scientists have developed a new optical telescope chip for a telescope which will enable astronomers to have a clear view of alien planets capable of supporting life. Seeing a planet outside the solar system which is close to its host star – that is in the star’s habitable zone – is extremely difficult with today’s standard astronomical instruments due to the brightness of the star. *Hubble provides interstellar road map for Voyagers' galactic trek NASA's Hubble Space Telescope is being used to study the flight paths of the space agency’s twin Voyager spacecraft allowing astronomers to see what the probes are flying through. The two Voyager spacecraft are hurtling through unexplored territory on their journey beyond our solar system.

Stellar collision predicted for 2022 - SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 20 Episode 4
Stream Episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com or www.spacetimewithstuartgary.com (both mobile friendly) *Stellar collision predicted for 2022 A pair of stars -- expected to collide in around five years -- should cause a blast powerful enough to be seen from Earth with the unaided eye. Latest observations indicate the stars – which form a contact binary system known as KIC 9832227 -- have already merged their atmospheres and taken on a peanut like shape. *Deepest X-ray image ever reveals new secrets about black holes An unparalleled image from NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory is giving astronomers the best look yet at the growth of black holes over billions of years beginning soon after the Big Bang. The observations contain the highest concentration of supermassive black holes ever seen, equivalent to about 5,000 objects. *Star heading for as flyby of our solar system. The European Space Agency’s Gaia mission has identified a star which will come close enough to our solar system to affect the orbits of comets in the Oort Cloud – the hypothetical sphere of comets and icy debris caught in the Sun’s gravity well surrounding the solar system. The star -- known as Gliese 710 -- will pass within 26 billion kilometres or 72 light days of the Earth in 1.35 million years’ time. *Our galaxy’s black hole flinging Jupiter sized projectiles in to space Astronomers have concluded that the supermassive black hole at the centre of our galaxy the Milky Way is ejecting giant planet sized balls of plasma every few thousand years. The plasma balls are the superheated remains of stars that have wandered too close to the monstrous black hole and were ripped apart in gravitational tidal disruption events. *China undertakes first launch for 2017 China has carried out its first launch for the year sending a Long March 3b rocket into space with a new experimental military telecommunications satellite.

Stream Episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com or www.spacetimewithstuartgary.com (both mobile friendly) *Strange rare galaxy discovered Astronomers have found an unusual ring galaxy unlike anything ever seen before. The galaxy appears to include a well-defined elliptical-like core surrounded by two circular rings. *The universe’s most powerful cosmic particle accelerator discovered Two of the most powerful phenomena in the universe, a supermassive black hole and the collision of giant galaxy clusters, have combined to create one of the most powerful cosmic particle accelerators ever seen. The spectacle is showing scientists what happens when matter ejected by a giant black hole is swept up in the merger of two enormous galaxy clusters. *Discovery of the missing link between pulsars and magnetars Astronomers have found the missing link between neutron star pulsars and highly magnetic neutron stars known as magnetars. The study is based on the discovery of a neutron star called PSR J1119 -6127which appears to be in a never before seen transition phase between pulsar and magnetar. *First results from the Parkes telescope’s latest search for ET Breakthrough Listen – a ten year 100 million dollar astronomical search for intelligent life beyond Earth has announced its first observations using the CSIRO’s Parkes Radio Telescope. The project was launched in 2015 by theoretical physicist and Internet entrepreneur Yuri Milner together with fellow physicist Stephen Hawking. *World’s highest capacity broadband satellite launched A United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket has successfully blasted into orbit carrying the EchoStar XIX telecommunications satellite.

Mysterious Fast Radio Bursts & The Dwarf Galaxy - SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 20 Episode 2
Stream Episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com or www.spacetimewithstuartgary.com (both mobile friendly) *Mysterious Fast Radio Bursts linked to a distant dwarf galaxy and maybe a Magnetar Astronomers are a step closer to finally determining what mysterious powerful energy blasts known as Fast Radio Bursts are. They’ve narrowed down a likely source to a distant ancient dwarf galaxy some three billion light years away – and possibly to a highly magnetic type of neutron star known as a magnetar. *Two new missions to explore early solar system NASA has selected two missions designed to open new windows on one of the earliest eras in the history of our solar system -- a time less than 10 million years after the birth of the Sun. The missions, known as Lucy and Psyche will fly in 2021 and 2013 respectively. *Two more Near Earth objects discovered NASA's NEOWISE mission has discovered another two previously unknown Near Earth Objects or NEOs heading for our celestial neighbourhood, including one that further blurs the line between asteroids and comets. One is an object called 2016 WF9 in an orbit that takes it on a scenic tour of our solar system, while the other is a new comet named C/2016 U1 NEOWISE which has a good chance of becoming visible through binoculars. *Dark Matter pioneer astronomer Vera Rubin dies at 88 One of the great pioneers of Dark Matter – astronomer Vera Rubin has passed away aged 88. Rubin’s pioneering research measuring galactic rotation curves proved there was something fundamentally wrong with sciences understanding of the physics of the universe. Either there was a serious flaw in the laws of gravity or there was a great deal of unseen mass out there -- needed to explain observations of the apparent movement of galaxies in clusters. We now know that missing mass is Dark Matter. *Military satellite launched on Delta IV rocket One of the world’s most advanced military telecommunications satellites has been successfully launched into orbit. The eighth US Air Force Wideband Global Satcom system‘s satellite WGS-8 blasted into black skies aboard a United Launch Alliance Delta 4 rocket from Space Launch Complex 37B at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Base in Florida.

Super galaxy cluster discovered hiding behind the Milky Way - SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Episode 94
Stream Episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com or www.spacetimewithstuartgary.com (both mobile friendly) *A super galaxy cluster discovered hiding behind the Milky Way One of the largest structures in the universe – a giant previously undetected galactic supercluster -- has been discovered -- blocked from view by the bulk of our own galaxy the Milky Way. The newly found Vela galaxy supercluster may help explain the difference between the measured motion of the Milky Way through space -- and the motion it should have based on the distribution of previously mapped galaxies. *Number of known black holes is expected to double within two years A new detection method means the number of known black holes is expected to double within the next two years The new method is expected to detect roughly 10 black holes per year, providing new clues about the history and evolution of these monstrous gravity wells over the next decade. *Leap second added on New Year’s eve. Tidal action causing ocean waves to apply a breaking effect on planet Earth’s rotation are being blamed for the decision to add a leap second to the end of 2016. The breaking affect is caused by the Moon continuing to slowly pull away from the Earth at a rate of about 3 centimetres per year – slowing the planet’s rotation in the process. *Arianespace wraps up a busy 2016 Arianespace has wrapped up a busy 2016 with another successful launch of its heavy lift Ariane 5 rocket carrying two telecommunications satellites into orbit. Mission VA-234 blasted off into clear blue skies from the European Space Agency’s Kourou spaceport in French Guiana.

Water on Mars? More clues... - SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Episode 93
Stream Episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com or www.spacetimewithstuartgary.com (both mobile friendly) *New findings provide more clues about water habitability on Mars Water probably existed on the surface of Mars in conditions that would have been suitable for microbial live to have thrived if life existed on the red planet. The new conclusions are based on the discovery of Boron on the surface of Mars by NASA’s Curiosity rover. *Icy surprises at Rosetta's comet The European Space Agency’s historic Rosetta mission to the Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko may be over but scientists are still making new discoveries as they sift through the petabytes of data collected during the journey. The research team have just discovered that as Rosetta’s comet approached its most active period in August 2015, the spacecraft spotted carbon dioxide ice – never before seen on a comet – followed by the emergence of two unusually large patches of water ice. *A new explanation for the so called so called Alien megastructure star Scientists have come up with a new hypothesis to explain the weirdness of the so-called Alien megastructure star KIC 8462852 which has shown dramatic changes in brightness that until now couldn’t be explained by most astrophysical processes. The best one however, was the now notorious Alien megastructure suggestion which jokingly postulated that it could be an advanced alien civilisation harvesting much of the star’s energy using a Dyson sphere -- a massive structure composed of solar panels large enough to surround an entire star. *New tropical cyclone research satellites launched NASA’s new Cyclone Global Navigation Satellite System – CYGNSS – has been successfully launched into orbit aboard a Pegasus rocket. The CYGNSS constellation of eight small satellites will allow scientists study tropical cyclones, hurricanes, and other storms in unprecedented detail.

Stream Episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com or www.spacetimewithstuartgary.com (both mobile friendly) *New antimatter breakthrough helping to illuminate mysteries of the Big Bang Scientists are a step closer to understanding how the universe came into existence following the first ever optical spectrum measurements of an antimatter atom. The ground breaking research allowed physicists to compare normal hydrogen with its antimatter counterpart for the first time. *The famous red star Betelgeuse is spinning faster than it should The famous red star Betelgeuse is spinning faster than it should possibly because its eaten another star. The findings indicate that the red supergiant – which is due to explode as a supernova any day now – was probably in a binary stellar system with a companion star. *PAN-STARRS releases the largest digital sky survey ever undertaken The Pan-STARRS project -- the world’s largest digital sky survey has finally been released -- providing details of over three billion stars, galaxies and other celestial objects. The catalogue is based on 4 years of observations of 3/4 of the visible sky. *What’s up for 2017 in astronomy 2016 has been an amazing year for astronomy and space exploration with confirmation of the first ever detection of gravitational waves from colliding black holes, strong evidence supporting the possible existence of a ninth planet in our Solar System, and the first successful vertical landing at sea of the core stage of a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. 2017 will undoubtedly bring more highlights and we speak with Dr Nick Lomb Consultant Curator of astronomy at the Powerhouse Museum's Sydney Observatory and the author of the 2017 Australasian sky guide.

Stream Episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com or www.spacetimewithstuartgary.com (both mobile friendly) S19Ep91: *Black hole ASASSN A sudden unusually bright flash of light in a distant galaxy -- which was thought to be the explosive death of a star as a supernova -- has turned out to be an even more spectacular stellar death – the total destruction of a star by a supermassive black hole. New observations indicate the unusually bright flash – which had been named ASASSN-15LH – and which was originally thought to be the brightest supernova ever seen -- was actually a tidal disruption event -- caused by a star being ripped to pieces after venturing too close to a monstrous black hole. *New search for Earth’s unseen companions NASA’s OSIRIS-REx mission is about to begin a search for possible Earth Trojan asteroids. OSIRIS-Rex is on a two year flight to rendezvous with the asteroid Bennu and it will be ideally positioned in February to undertake a survey of a region which often contain asteroids known as Trojans. *India caps off its biggest year so far in space flight India has launched a new Earth imaging satellite rounding off the subcontinent’s busiest year so far for space missions. The PSLV or Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle blasted off from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre on Sriharikota island on the Bay of Bengal coast carrying Resourcesat-2a into orbit. *The December Solstice The December Solstice will occur at 21.44 Australian Eastern Daylight Time on Wednesday December 21st as the Sun reached zenith appearing to be directly over the tropic of Capricorn. In the USA and the Northern Hemisphere, it’s the winter solstice marking the first day of winter -- but the good news is that from now on the days start to get longer again while south of the Equator summer has well and truly arrived and the day’s start getting shorter.

The discovery suggests the presence of a large number of undetected dwarf galaxies in the halo of the Milky Way -- providing important insights into the role dark matter plays in galaxy formation. *The new hypothesis challenging Einstein's speed of light physics Scientists behind an idea that the speed of light is variable - and not constant as Albert Einstein’s relativity theory suggests -- have made a prediction that could be tested. The speed of light in a vacuum remains one of sciences great constants – a key foundation stone underpinning modern physics and sciences understanding of the universe. *December SkyWatch -- the rock comet responsible for this month’s spectacular Geminids meteor shower One of the astronomical highlights of December are the annual Geminids meteor shower which usually peak around December 13 and 14. Radiating out of the direction of the constellation Gemini, the Geminids are unusual in that they’re not generated by a comet as most other meteor showers are – but by the debris trail left behind by the asteroid 3200 Phaethon.

The findings are based a new study of data from the Earth orbiting Hubble Space Telescope and other ground and space based observatories. *How Pluto paints its largest moon red Pluto’s binary partner and largest moon Charon owes its unusual reddish polar colouring to methane gas escaping Pluto’s atmosphere and becoming trapped by Charon’s gravity -- eventually freezing on to its cold, icy surface. The findings resolve a long standing mystery which began in June 2015, when the cameras on NASA’s approaching New Horizons spacecraft first spotted the strange reddish polar region on Charon. *Square Kilometre Array software tested on one of the world’s fastest super computers Prototype software designed to manage data from the Square Kilometre Array telescope is being tested on the world’s second fastest supercomputer in China. Once installed on the SKA the complete system will process raw observations of distant stars and galaxies and turn them into data that can be analysed by astronomers around the world. *China launches two taikonauts on a month long space mission China has successfully launched two taikonauts on a month long mission into orbit. The Shenzhou 11 spacecraft blasted off from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Centre in the Gobi Desert to rendezvous and dock with the Tiangong 2 orbiting laboratory launched last month.

However, the findings have also deepened a long-standing cosmological mystery about an unexplained so-called cold spot covering a vast sector of the universe. *New world discovered in the outer reaches of the solar system A new world has been discovered in the outer reaches of the solar system some 13.6 billion kilometres from the Sun. The distant frozen world was originally detected in 2014 and has now been confirmed by the International Astronomical Union. *Strange double peanut shaped galaxies discovered Astronomers have discovered weird structures shaped like double peanuts in two nearby galaxies. The discovery reported in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society are thought to provide new clues about the history of these galaxies. *Schiaparelli prepares to land on Mars In less than a week from now the European Space Agency’s ExoMars entry, descent and landing module Schiaparelli will touch down on the frozen arid surface of the red planet. The cone-shaped lander was launched on 14 March attached to ESA’s ExoMars Trace Gas Orbiter spacecraft for the seven-month journey to Mars.

Scientists call this mysterious event cosmological inflation -- the problem is they have no real idea what it actually is – and what physical mechanisms drove it. *More mystery surrounding an already strange star Last month we reported how astronomers think they may finally have solved the mystery surrounding a weird erratically flickering and dimming star -- whose strange behaviour -- sparked speculation that it could have been our first sign of an advanced alien civilization. However, a new study has reopened the mystery. *Saturn’s moon Dione has a subsurface ocean New data from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has confirmed the existence of another subsurface ocean on a moon in the outer solar system. Cassini has discovered the ocean under the surface of the Saturnian moon Dione. *Nobel Prize in physics goes to topology in materials This year’s Nobel prize for physics has gone to David Thouless, Duncan Haldane and Michael Kosterlitz for revealing the secrets of exotic matter. The trio used advanced mathematical methods to study unusual phases, or states, of matter, such as superconductors, superfluids and thin magnetic films.

The findings are based on a series of small previously undetected cliff-like tectonic structures on the planet’s surface known as thrust fault scarps. *Rosetta’s grand finale After a journey lasting over 12 and a half years Rosetta’s mission is finally over. Rosetta discovered over 60 molecules, 34 of which had never been found before on a comet. These include oxygen and the amino acid glycine, a basic building block of life. It also confirmed that Earth’s water probably didn’t come from comets – but rather asteroids. *Solar Minimum on its way Over the last few days AR2597 -- the last remaining sunspot group on the surface of our local star the Sun – disappeared. The blank solar face – the fourth this year -- is a sign that the Sun’s 11 year solar cycle is now heading towards Solar Minimum. *Skywatch October Well you’ve probably heard of a blue moon – the rare occurrence of a second full Moon in the one calendar month – but have you ever heard of a black moon. *New super heavy lift launch vehicle Blue Origin have announced details of a new super heavy lift launch vehicle. Blue Origin have leased Space Launch Complex 36 at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Base in Florida for their new rocket which could be flying by 2020.

Stream episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com or www.spacetimewithstuartgary.com (both mobile friendly) Hi everyone, Stuart with the Show Notes for Series 19 Episode 65: *Martian lakes around far longer than thought There’s new evidence from Mars that lakes and snowmelt-fed streams on the red planet surface may have formed as recently as 2 to 3 billion years ago -- much later than previously thought possible. The new findings show that recently discovered lakes and streams appeared on the red planet’s northern Arabia Terra region roughly a billion years after a well-documented, earlier era of wet conditions on ancient Mars. *Ceres pyramid mystery solved A mysterious pyramid structure discovered by NASA’s Dawn spacecraft on the surface of the asteroid Ceres is now believed to be a recently active cryovolcano. The findings indicate the volcano which has been named Ahuna Mons – has only a few impact craters on its flanks -- indicating it was formed fairly recently -- within the last couple of hundred million years. *September Equinox The September equinox will take place at 21 minutes after midnight on the morning of Friday September 23rd Australian Eastern Standard time. The day marks the point in Earth’s orbit around the Sun when the planet’s rotational axial tilt means the Sun will appear to rise and set exactly due East to someone standing on the equator. *China launches new space station China has successfully launched a new space station. The Tiangong 2 was blasted into orbit aboard a Long March 2F rocket from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Centre in the Gobi desert. *Arianespace launches five satellites on Vega rocket Arianespace has successfully launched a Vega rocket carrying five Earth observation satellites into orbit. The three stage solid fuelled rocket blasted into to the black late night skies above the European Space Agency’s Kourou space port in French Guiana carrying PeruSat-1 and four small SkySat satellites for Google. *Perth Observatory birthday celebrations The Perth Observatory is celebrating its 120th birthday on Saturday. The observatory was the brainchild of Sir John Forrest who wanted to build an observatory for the isolated British colony of Western Australia.

After additional processing and analysis, astronomers think the signal is most probably terrestrial in origin. *Annular solar eclipse over Africa Africa played centre stage on the morning of September first to a spectacular annular solar eclipse with the Moon passing directly in front of the Sun giving the appearance of leaving a ring of fire over the continent for several seconds. The eclipse was annular rather than total because the Moon was a bit further away from the Earth and so didn’t cover all of the Sun’s face.

Stuart here with the Show Notes for Spacetime Series 19 Episode 60: *First stars formed later than previously thought New research has discovered that the first stars in the Universe began shining far later than previously thought. The findings – based on new data from the European Space Agency’s Planck satellite -- also indicate that these first generation stars were the only sources needed to re-ionize the entire universe – giving us the cosmos we see today. *New study raising puzzling questions about galaxy evolution A new study charting the rise and fall of galaxies over 90 percent of cosmic history -- has discovered galactic diversity in the early universe was similar to what astronomers see today. The new findings raise some profound questions about galactic evolution – how could galaxies which appear old and no longer make stars – exist in such a young universe. *Asteroid close encounter It’s been revealed that the Earth barely escaped being hit by an asteroid on Saturday. The 34 metre wide space rock flew past the Earth at a distance of just 84 thousand 619 kilometres – just hours after first being discovered.

Stream this and previous episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com or www.spacetimewithstuartgary.com (both sites mobile friendly) Hi everyone...Stuart with the Show Notes for Series 19 Episode 59: *Dark matter galaxy discovered Astronomers have discovered a galaxy composed almost entirely of Dark Matter. The galaxy -- Dragonfly 44 – is about 70 thousand light years wide and has about the same mass as our own Milky Way galaxy -- but with far fewer stars – and with some 99.99 percent of its mass composed of dark matter. *New study of time symmetry A new theory to explain why the universe is symmetrical – while time appears to be asymmetrical. The research examines a mysterious effect -- called 'T violation' -- a violation of time reversal symmetry -- which could be the origin of time evolution and conservation laws. *Mystery SETI Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence signal detected Astronomers are trying to determine the cause of a mysterious signal picked up by Russian scientists involved in the SETI Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence. The signal was detected by scientists with the RATAN-600 observatory in Russia. *Juno soars over the Jovian cloud tops NASA’s Juno spacecraft has successfully completed its closest approach to the swirling cream and tan cloud tops of the solar system’s largest planet Jupiter. Saturday morning’s flyby was the closest planned approach during the mission with the spacecraft flying just 4200 kilometres above the Jovian clouds at 208,000 kilometres per hour.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Episode 58 - Confirmed!
Stream on demand from www.bitesz.com or www.spacetimewithstuartgary.com (both mobile friendly) Hi everyone...Stuart with the Show Notes for Series 19 Episode 58...and what a week it's been... *Earth sized planet discovered in the habitable zone of our nearest neighbouring star Astronomers have now confirmed the discovery of an Earth sized planet orbiting in the habitable zone of Proxima Centauri – our nearest neighbouring star system. As we reported a week ago on SpaceTime -- the newly detected planet named Proxima B is about 1.3 times the mass of the Earth and is orbiting in its host star’s habitable zone – temperatures would allow liquid water to exist on the surface of a terrestrial or rocky planet. *Seasonal streaks on Mars may not be water after all Seasonal dark streaks on Mars known as Recurring Slope Lineae which have become one of the hottest topics in interplanetary research don't hold much water after all -- according to new data from NASA’s Mars Odyssey spacecraft which is orbiting the red planet. The new Mars Odyssey results are based on ground temperature readings measured through infrared imaging by the spacecraft's Thermal Emission Imaging System - THEMIS. *Dwarf planet Ceres could have lots of water ice filled craters Scientists have identified permanently shadowed regions on the dwarf planet Ceres which are cold enough to trap water ice for a billion years. The new findings suggest that the giant asteroid has the right conditions for the accumulation of water ice deposits which could still exist there today.

Novae are the most frequent and among the brightest type of stellar explosions known. *Cassini Finds Flooded Canyons on Titan NASA's Cassini spacecraft has found deep, steep-sided canyons on Saturn's moon Titan that are flooded with liquid hydrocarbons. The findings represent the first direct evidence of the presence of liquid-filled channels on Titan, as well as the first observation of canyons hundreds of metres deep. *More evidence of ancient Martian lakes discovered in Gale Crater A new study has found that mineral veins found in Gale Crater were formed by the evaporation of ancient Martian lakes. The discovery is based on a study of the mineralogy of veins that were paths for groundwater in mudstones found at Yellowknife Bay in Gale Crater by NASA’s Mars Curiosity rover. *Red Dragon update The space flight community is a buzz with rumours that SpaceX boss Elon Musk will announce the company’s long term plans for the exploration of the red planet Mars at next month’s International Astronautical Congress in Mexico. SpaceX has already announced details of its Red Dragon project to send a modified Dragon V2 capsule to land on Mars in 2018. *New satellite launched to spy on other satellites and track space debris A Delta IV rocket has successfully blasted into orbit carrying two United States Air Force Space Command spy satellites designed to study other satellites and to track space debris. As well as monitoring other spacecraft, the United States Air Force Space Command is currently tracking over 23,000 pieces of orbiting debris. *China launches first quantum encrypted satellite China has launched its new quantum satellite aboard a Long March 2D rocket. The 500 kilogram Quantum Science telecommunications Satellite – called Mozi -- after an ancient Chinese philosopher and scientist -- is designed to test quantum entanglement from a 600 kilometre high orbit -- sending messages using quantum encrypted keys between ground stations in China and Europe. *Long March 4C launches Gaofen-3 Earth Observation Satellite A Chinese Long March 4 C rocket has blasted into orbit carrying the new Gaofen-3 surveillance satellite. The spy satellite flight comes amid growing tensions over Beijing’s annexation of parts of the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea.

A report in Germany’s respected Der Spiegel news magazine claims the discovery was made by astronomers with the European Southern Observatory’s La Silla telescope in Chile. *Scientists use a simulated black hole to demonstrate Hawking radiation A scientist using a simulated black hole may just have demonstrated existence of Hawking radiation – the hypothesis claiming black holes evaporate over time. The research could open a window linking Albert Einstein’s General Relativity Theory with Quantum Mechanics – finally pointing the way to quantum gravity. *Physicists confirm possible discovery of fifth force of nature Earlier this year on SpaceTime we reported the possible detection of a previously unknown fifth fundamental force in nature The key is a potential new sub-atomic particle called the protophobic X boson which has about thirty times the mass of an electron. *JCSAT16 launched on SpaceX rocket. A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket has successfully launched a new telecommunications satellite into orbit from the Cape Canaveral Air Force base in Florida. The 70 metre tall rocket lit up partly cloudy night skies as it blasted off Space Launch complex 40.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Episode 55 - Strange New Outer Solar System Body
Stream this and previous episodes on demand from www.bitesz.com (mobile friendly) or www.spacetimewithstuartgary.com Hi everyone, Stuart here with the Show Notes for Series 19 Episode 55. *Strange new outer solar system body defies scientific explanation Astronomers have just detected a new trans Neptunian object in the outer rim of the solar system on a strange highly unusual orbit. The discovery indicates the newly found object -- nicknamed Niku – has a retrograde and highly inclined orbit around the Sun. *More evidence supporting the existence of a ninth planet in our solar system Two new studies claim our solar system’s tilt could be explained by the existence of a ninth planet out beyond Neptune. The new research uses computer models to show how a hypothetical ninth planet of a specific mass and orbit would influence orbital plane or ecliptic of the solar system – causing it to tilt by six degrees in comparison to the Sun’s equator. *Neutrino’s offer new clues into why we live a matter rather than antimatter universe A new study of elemental sub atomic particles called neutrinos has provided scientists with new insights into why the universe is made up of more matter than antimatter. *No evidence for the existence of a fourth kind of neutrino – the sterile neutrino Meanwhile, efforts to find a fourth type or flavor of neutrino -- known as the sterile neutrino -- have failed to identify the long hypothesized particle. If discovered, the sterile neutrino could have helped resolve the long standing mystery of the origin of dark matter as well as the matter/antimatter asymmetry in the universe. *SkyWatch We check out the August night skies with Jonathan Nally from Australian Sky and Telescope Magazine.

The star named KIC 8462852 is so unusual -- one scientist even suggested it could be our first sign of a hypothetical alien megastructure called a Dyson Sphere. *The world’s first interplanetary mining mission It’s not the Nostromo made famous in the movie Alien, but the world’s first commercial interplanetary mining mission will launch a precursor flight next year before venturing off in to deep space to mine a near Earth asteroid. Australia changing its address *Australia is about to change its address. Federal government hasn’t updated the continent’s coordinate system since 1994.causing existing GPS navigation systems to be off by about one and a half metres. *New project to study dark energy The United States has given final approval for a new project to study dark energy – a mysterious force whose properties will determine the ultimate fate of the universe. The 3-D sky-mapping project called the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument or DESI will measure the light of millions of galaxies. *Revolutionary Wifi invention selected for World in 100 Objects Exhibition A revolutionary 1992 Australian invention that led to Wi-Fi has been chosen by the National Museum of Australia to be part of the A History of the World in 100 Objects exhibition, opening in Canberra next month. The exhibition will showcase items from around the globe to explore human history, sourcing the oldest objects from the British Museum's collection and incorporating those from the present day. *The possibility of creating a new type of photon New research suggests that it is possible to create a new form of light by binding a photon to a single electron and combining the properties of both. The combined photon electron would have properties that could lead to circuits that work with packages of photons instead of electrons.

The finding is expected to help researchers solve one of the greatest mysteries in biology -- the origin of homochirality -- and offer insights into what we can expect from life throughout the universe. *New ideas on the nature of black holes A team of scientists have developed a new way of looking at the physics of black holes. The hypothesis suggests that matter might in fact survive its foray into these space objects and come out the other side. *The most dangerous threat to humanity to provide the best meteor shower in almost 20 years This year’s Perseids meteor shower is set for its best show in nearly 20 years. Around 150 meteors an hour expected to delight sky watchers at its peak on the nights of August 11, 12 and 13 depending on which hemisphere you’re in. But the Perseids come with a warning… *NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory suffers anomaly NASA mission managers are working to restore systems aboard the agency’s Solar Dynamics Observatory spacecraft following a major anomaly which shut down its science instruments. The spacecraft failed to return to science mode after observing a Lunar transit of the Sun. *Billion dollar satellite fails to reach intended orbit The US Navy says the main engine aboard its new MUOS 5 communications satellite has failed – preventing the billion dollar spacecraft reaching its geostationary orbit. The Navy are now looking at ways to salvage the satellite which was launched aboard an Atlas V rocket from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Base in Florida on June 24. *First private company set to fly to the Moon next year The United States government has given approval for a private company to the launch a mission to land on the Moon next year.

The discovery helps scientists better understand how the Milky Way was formed and how it’s evolved ever since. *New questions about how gullies are formed on Mars A new study claims liquid water flowing over the surface of Mars isn’t responsible for the recent formation of gullies on the red planet. The new findings are based on data from NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft which shows no mineralogical evidence for abundant liquid water or its by-products associated with the gullies. *Huge fire ball was space junk A huge fireball seen burning up in the night skies over Las Vegas was most likely Chinese space junk rather than a meteor. Large regions of California, Nevada, and Utah were treated to the spectacular light show last week when the giant fireball streaked across the sky. *Five Years Post-Launch, Juno Is at a Turning Point Five years after departing Earth, and a month after slipping into orbit around Jupiter, NASA's Juno spacecraft has reached the turning point on its highly elliptical orbit around the solar system’s largest planet. On July 31 Juno reached the farthest point in its orbit around Jupiter. *NASA Orders Second SpaceX Crew Mission to International Space Station NASA has taken another step in its efforts to return human space flight to American soil – ordering a second post-certification mission for the SpaceX’s Dragon V2 capsule and Falcon 9 launch vehicle. The order of a second crew rotation mission from SpaceX, paired with the two ordered from Boeing CST100 starliner will help ensure reliable crew rotation flights from the Kennedy Space Centre in Florida to the International Space Station as well as longer duration deep space missions using Orion capsules on deep space missions to the Moon, Mars and beyond. *First vinyl record played in near space Humans have achieved another important first – the playing of a vinyl record on a turntable at the very edge of space. With the album on the turntable and the record player set on repeat – the gondola was sent aloft on a high-altitude balloon to a height of 28,000 metres – higher than the cruising altitude of a U2 spy plane. *New generation top secret spy satellite launched A new top secret spy satellite has been launched amid a curtain of secrecy for the National Reconnaissance Office. The clandestine mission is believed to have placed a new-generation Quasar data-relay satellite into an inclined geosynchronous orbit 35,888 kilometres above the Earth.

Scientists had thought this enormous reservoir of hot gas remained stationary while the Milky Way spins inside it. *The Square Kilometer Array reaches another milestone Scientists have completed another key step in their efforts to build what will be the world’s largest radio telescope, the SKA or Square Kilometer Array. Researchers have successfully tested astronomical verification of a critical sub-system for the giant telescope known as the frequency synchronisation system. *Farewell to Rosetta’s Philae lander European Space Agency mission managers have formally switched off the system on the Rosetta spacecraft which provides communications links between the orbiter and its tiny Philae lander. Switching off the system is part of the preparations for Rosetta's end of mission which is slated for September 30. Scientists figured out last common ancestor of all living things *Scientists think they’ve worked out the genetic make-up of the last common ancestor of all living things. Researchers found our earliest common ancestor probably consisted of just 355 genes and made its living around superheated deep sea hydrothermal vents about four billion years ago. *The annual Delta Aquariid Meteor shower underway The annual Delta Aquariid Meteor shower is at its peak with the best viewing about now because it coincides with a new moon providing darker skies.

Stream from www.bitesz.com (mobile friendly) Hi....Stuart with the Show Notes for Episode 49: Clues to one of the largest asteroid impacts in Earth’s history discovered in Western Australia Evidence for one of the largest asteroid impacts to ever have hit the Earth has been discovered in Western Australia. The impact – which occurred about 3.46 billion years ago -- is the second oldest dated collision in the planet’s history. Why galaxies stop making stars A new study has determined why galaxies stop making new generations of stars. Astronomers found two separate processes are involved in ending star formation. The hunt for dark matter continues following another failed search for the elusive particle A 20 month long search for a mysterious particle which makes up 80 percent of all the matter in the universe has failed to uncover the elusive identity of dark matter. The Large Underground Xenon dark matter experiment yielded no trace of a candidate particle despite the most sensitive search even conducted. A new type of sand dune discovered on Mars Scientists have discovered a new type of sand dune on the surface of the red planet Mars which is unlike anything seen on Earth. The newly identified dune appears to be intermediate in size between tiny ripples and larger wavier dunes.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Episode 48 - A Bounty Of Brown Dwarfs
Hi...Stuart with the Show Notes for Series 19 Episode 48. *A bounty of Brown Dwarfs and planets discovered deep in the Orion Nebula New technology allowing astronomers to peer deeper into the heart of the Orion Nebula than ever before, has revealed a massive population of previously unseen planets and brown dwarfs. The discovery shows that the Orion Nebula may be forming proportionally far more low-mass objects than closer and less active star formation regions. *Astronomers produce the most detailed map yet of the visible universe. Astronomers have produced the largest-ever, three-dimensional map yet of the visible universe -- showing some 1.2 million galaxies -- covering over a quarter of the sky and mapping out the structure of the universe over a volume of 650 cubic billion light-years. The new map allows scientists to make the best measurements so far of the effects of a mysterious force called dark energy on the expansion of the universe and consequently the ultimate fate of the cosmos. *Astronomers discover how the fabled man in the moon got his right eye A new study has discovered that a huge asteroid or protoplanet which crashed into the Moon 3.8 billion years ago was responsible for giving the fabled man in the moon his right eye. The massive 250 kilometre wide space rock created the Moon’s iconic Imbrium Basin as a result of the impact. This new size estimate means the Imbrium impactor was at least two times larger and 10 times more massive than previous estimates. *NASA’s mission to touch the Sun NASA’s first mission to “touch” the Sun has passed a critical development milestone keeping it on track for launch in July 2018. The Solar Probe Plus mission will send a spacecraft on a series of data-collecting runs through the Sun’s atmosphere.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Episode 47 - Ancient Supnovae and Martian Moons
Hi...Stuart with the Show Notes for Series 19 Episode 47 *Ancient supernovae affected life on Earth Two ancient supernovae which erupted within 300 light years of Earth likely exposed biology on our planet to a long-lasting cosmic radiation. The findings are based on new computer simulations of the impact the two exploding stars had on surrounding space. *Solving the mystery of the Martian moons Astronomers may have finally solved the mystery of how the two Martian moons -- Phobos and Deimos -- were formed. Two separate and independent studies have both concluded that the moons were formed by collision events early in the red planet’s history. *Newly discovered planet has three Suns If you thought Luke Skywalker’s home planet, Tatooine, was a strange world with its two Suns in the sky, imagine a planet where you’d either experience constant daylight or enjoy triple sunrises and sunsets every day. This isn’t the opening scene for some future episode of Star Wars but rather the vista seen from the surface of the distant exoplanet, HD 131399Ab. *Flying Dragon targets International Space Station A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket has blasted into orbit from the Cape Canaveral Air Force base -- lighting up the early morning skies of the Florida Atlantic coast – on a two day flight bound for the International Space Station. The Falcon 9 is carrying a Dragon cargo ship loaded with two tonnes of fresh supplies, scientific experiments, and space station equipment as part of a SpaceX contract with NASA to supply the orbiting outpost. *Skywatch We turn our eyes to the skies as Jonathan Nally -- the editor of Australian Sky and Telescope Magazine -- takes us on a journey through this month’s night skies with Skywatch.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Episode 46 - One door closes, another opens.
Hi .... Stuart with the Show Notes for Series 19 Episode 46: *First evidence explaining how supermassive black holes are formed Astronomers have discovered evidence for an unusual kind of black hole which would have been born in the very early universe and could have been the seeds for today’s supermassive black holes. While astronomers have a good handle on how stellar mass black holes are formed – mystery has always surrounded their larger counterparts -- the supermassive black holes found at the centre of most if not all galaxies. Special guest....Aaron Smith from University of Texas, Austin. *New dwarf planet discovered beyond Neptune It’s not the long sort after mysterious planet 9 – but a new dwarf planet has been discovered orbiting the Sun beyond Neptune.Astronomers spotted the distant frozen world using the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope on Mauna Kea. The new object -- designated 2015 RR245 is about 700 kilometres in diameter and has one of the largest orbits of any known dwarf planet. *Rosetta’s mission to end on September 30 The European Space Agency has announced that its Rosetta spacecraft will complete its mission on September 30 performing a controlled descent to the surface of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. The pioneering probe made history in August 2014 becoming the first spacecraft to enter orbit around a comet.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Episode 45 - Citizen scientists rule!
Hi, Stuart with the Show Notes for Series 19 Episode 45... *Citizen scientists discover a massive galaxy cluster Two volunteer participants in an international citizen science project have discovered a rare galaxy cluster which has now been named in their honour. The pair pieced together the huge C-shaped structure -- located some 1.2 billion light years away -- from much smaller images of cosmic radio waves shown to them as part of the web-based Radio Galaxy Zoo project. *New Type of Meteorite Linked to Ancient Asteroid Collision Scientists have discovered a new type of meteorite never before seen on Earth. The space rock, appears to be from the missing partner in a massive asteroid collision 470 million years ago. *Physicists discover family of tetraquarks Physicists have confirmed the existence of a new group of sub atomic particles called tetraquarks. Scientists at Syracuse University confirmed the existence of the rare exotic particle as well as three siblings using the Large Hadron Collider beauty LHCb detector at CERN theEuropean Organization for Nuclear Research. *Curiosity Mars rover unexpectedly shuts down NASA's Mars Curiosity rover shut down unexpectedly over the weekend. The car sized six wheel robot suddenly put itself into safe standby mode on July second. *Virgin Galactic to start test flights of its newest spaceship Virgin Galactic is about to start test flying its newest space plane The Unity which replaces the original SpaceShipTwo Enterprise which crashed into the Mojave Desert back in January 2014.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Episode 44...so there you are!
Hi, Stuart with the Show Notes for Series 19 Episode 44. *Black hole discovered hiding in plain sight Astronomers have detected a previously unseen black hole that’s been hiding in plain sight. The findings indicate the newly discovered black hole is located about 7,200 light years away, well within our own Milky Way galaxy. Because the study only covered a very small patch of sky, the findings imply that there should be tens of thousands to millions of these unseen black holes in the Milky Way -- thousands more than previous studies suggested. *Water found on Brown dwarf Astronomers have -- for the first time -- found evidence of water in the clouds around a nearby brown dwarf. The discovery represents the strongest evidence yet for the existence of clouds of water or water ice, outside of our solar system. *New Soyuz capsule launches to Space Station Roscosmos has launched its newly upgraded Soyuz MS series capsule on its maiden flight to the International Space Station. The Soyuz MS-01 spacecraft blasted off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in the central Asian republic of Kazakhstan carrying three Expedition 48 crew members to the orbiting outpost. *2016 will be a second longer On December 31, 2016, a “leap second” will be added to the world’s clocks at 23 hours, 59 minutes 59 seconds Greenwich mean time. Historically, time was based on the mean rotation of the Earth relative to celestial bodies, and the second was defined in this reference frame. However, the invention of atomic clocks defined a much more precise “atomic” timescale and a second that is independent of Earth’s rotation Subscribe, rate and review at iTunes, audioBoom, Stitcher, Pocketcasts, Podbean, Podcast Addict, Tunein, Radioline or any good podcatcher app. Stream episodes from www.spacetimewithstuartgary.com or www.bitesz.com (mobile friendly).

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Episode 43 - Juno!
Hi everyone...Stuart with the Show Notes for Series 19 Episode 43. In this episode: *Juno orbit insertion After a journey lasting almost five years and 2.7 billion kilometres, NASA’s Juno spacecraft has successfully entered orbit around Jupiter the largest planet in the Solar System. The spacecraft will spend at least 20 months circling the Jovian world 37 times, skimming to within 4100 kilometres above the planet’s pink and salmon coloured cloud tops. During these flybys, Juno will probe beneath this obscuring cloud cover to try and understand the gas giant’s composition and the extent of its mysterious metallic hydrogen mantle which is thought responsible for Jupiter’s powerful radiation field. *Origin of unusual supernova discovered Astronomers may have finally worked out why some supernovae explosions known as 'extraordinary supernovae' are brighter than others. The discovery reported in the Publications of the Astronomical Society of Japan will help improve measurements of the Universe's expansion, and consequently the strength of Dark Energy which controls the ultimate final fate of the cosmos. *Studying the relics of the Milky Way’s first ever stars Astronomers have moved a step closer to studying the first stars in the universe. These primordial stars were very different from today’s stars because they were made just a hundred million years after the big bang -- out of the pure hydrogen and helium produced in that event. That unique composition made these first stars blue giants from twenty to over a hundred times the mass of our Sun. *New Horizons gets green light for planned second Kuiper Belt flyby Following its historic first-ever flyby of Pluto, NASA’s New Horizons mission has received the green light to fly onward to an object deeper in the Kuiper Belt, known as 2014 MU69. The spacecraft’s planned rendezvous with the ancient object -- considered one of the early building blocks of the solar system -- is January first 2019. *Mercury’s surface arose from deep inside Scientists have found that several volcanic deposits on Mercury's surface require mantle melting to have started close to the planet's core-mantle boundary. NASA’s MESSENGER mission to Mercury has shown that the surface of the planet is very heterogeneous, but it can be classified into two main types of regions.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Episode 42 - Planet 9 could be an alien world
Hi...Stuart here with the show notes for Series 19 Episode 42: *Planet 9 could be an alien world A new study claims that the recently inferred hypothetical planet 9 could be an exoplanet that originally formed around another star and was later captured by our Sun billions of years ago. The findings are based on new computer simulations. *Most detailed view yet of the black hole at the centre of our galaxy Astronomers have used the new GRAVITY instrument on the European Southern Observatory’s Very Large Telescope to obtain the most detailed observations yet of the supermassive black hole at the centre of our galaxy. The observations will allow scientists to test predictions of Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity. *Potential habitats for life found on Mars Astronomers have found evidence of carbonates beneath the surface of Mars -- pointing to a warmer and wetter environment capable of fostering the emergence of life -- in the red planet’s past. The new findings include evidence for widespread buried deposits of iron and calcium rich Martian carbonates, which suggests a wetter past for the Red Planet. Private missions to Mars *The Netherlands based Mars One organization says it’s continuing with its plans to send people on a one way mission to establish the first permanent human colony on the red planet by 2027. The project is one of several plans by non-government organisations to fly to Mars in the near future. Another – by SpaceX – is planning to launch a scientific satellite based on its Dragon capsule to the red planet in 2018. *Evidence for recent hydrothermal activity found on Ceres A new study has found that those mysterious bright spots on the dwarf planet Ceres have the highest concentration of carbonate minerals ever seen beyond Earth. The findings indicate recent hydrothermal activity is the most likely cause for the bright spots which were detected by NASA’s Dawn spacecraft in Ceres Occator Crater. *Chinese conduct surprise launch of Long March 4B rocket Beijing has carried out a surprise launch of a Long March-4B rocket from the Jiuquan Launch Centre in the Gobi Desert of north-western China's Gansu Province. The mission carried the second Shijian-16 experimental satellite which will be used for studying the effects of radiation and the orbital space environment on new equipment and technology.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Episode 41 - Strange dark hydrogen inside Jupiter
Hi...Stuart with the Show Notes for Series 19 Episode 41. * Strange dark hydrogen inside Jupiter New research suggests an exotic form of hydrogen known as dark hydrogen exists in a layer beneath the surface of Jupiter. One of the biggest unknowns is hydrogen’s transformation under the extreme pressures and temperatures found in the interiors of the gas giant where it is squeezed until it becomes liquid metal, capable of conducting electricity. *Oceans on Enceladus favourable for life A new study claims ice sheets covering a global liquid water ocean on Enceladus’s south pole could be just 20 kilometres thick -- far thinner than previously thought. The new research suggests a strong heat source in the interior of the Saturnian moon, which scientists claim provides an additional factor supporting the possible emergence of life in its ocean. *Hubble confirms new dark spot on Neptune New images obtained by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have confirm the presence of a new dark vortex in the atmosphere of Neptune. Though similar features were seen during the Voyager 2 flyby of Neptune in 1989 and by the Hubble Space Telescope in 1994, this vortex is the first one observed on Neptune in the 21st century. *Maiden flight for China’s new Long March 7 rocket Beijing has successfully undertaken the maiden flight of its new Long March 7 rocket from its new Wenchang Space Launch Center on southern China’s Hainan Island. The new 53 metre long two stage medium lift orbital launch vehicle will be used for both manned and unmanned space flights lifting 13,500 kilograms into a 400 kilometre Low Earth Orbit and 5,500 kilograms into a 700 kilometre high Sun-Synchronous Orbit. *India sets new record for most satellites launched on one rocket The Indian Space Research Organization has launched a PSLV rocket carrying a record 21 satellites from its Satish Dhawan Space Centre on the Bay of Bengal coast. The 44 metre tall PSLV or Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle was equipped with six strap on solid rocket boosters to lift its payload into orbit. *Atlas V launches new military satellite An Atlas V rocket successfully launched the MUOS-5 military communications satellite into orbit for the United States Navy. MUOS-5 is the final member of a five-satellite constellation designed to provide the US military with ultra high frequency communications worldwide.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Episode 40 - Study predicts a universe crowded with black holes
Hi everyone...Stuart with the Show Notes for Series 19 Episode 40: *Study predicts a universe crowded with black holes One of the most complete models ever developed of the distribution of matter across the universe predicts hundreds of massive black hole mergers must be occurring throughout the cosmos each year. The new study claims these mergers should be observable with new second generation Laser Interferometer gravitational wave detectors now being developed. *Pluto may have a subsurface ocean Scientists say ongoing geological activity on Pluto seen by NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft could be caused by the partial freezing of a subsurface ocean that likely still exists today. The new study claims models show recent geological activity on Pluto could have be driven solely by phase changes in the dwarf planet’s ice shell without the need for gravitational tidal activity or the radioactive decay of exotic minerals. *The discovery of an unexpected mineral on Mars may mean a rethink of Martian evolution NASA's Mars Curiosity rover has discovered an unexpected mineral in a Martian rock sample taken in Gale Crater, which may alter sciences understanding of how the red planet evolved. The six wheeled car sized rover has been exploring sedimentary rocks within Gale Crater since landing there back in August 2012. *Ariane 5 carries new payload launch record on its fifth flight of the year Arianespace has carried out its fifth Ariane five launch of the year setting a new launch payload mass record of 10,730 kilograms. *Mission VA230 blasted off from the European Space Agency’s Kourou Spaceport in French Guiana placing two telecommunications satellites into geostationary transfer orbits. *China launches navigation satellite A Chinese Long March 3c rocket has successfully blasted off from the Xichang Satellite Launch Centre in south western China’s Sichuan province placing the latest member of Beijing’s Beidou or compass satellite navigation system into orbit. China is developing its own satellite navigation system with a 35 spacecraft constellation to rival the American GPS, European Galileo, and Russian GLONASS systems by the end of next year. *New Shepard, flight four Blue Origin’s New Shepard suborbital rocket has successfully completed its fourth test flight at the company’s western Texas launch facility. Blue Origin plans on using New Shepard to carry up to ten space tourists at a time to altitudes of 100 kilometres -- the official start of space -- with the first paying passengers flying in 2018.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Episode 39 - The June Solstice Edition
Hi...Stuart with the Show Notes for Series 19 Episode 39: *Did gravitational wave detector find dark matter? The successful detection of gravitational waves from the merging of black holes has raised new speculation about the possible source of dark matter. Dark matter which makes up 85 percent of all the material in the universe is a mysterious invisible substance which can only be detected by its gravitational interaction with ordinary matter. *NASA's Juno spacecraft to risk Jupiter’s fireworks for science NASA’s Juno spacecraft is about to enter orbit around the solar system’ largest planet and in the process face massive radiation exposure – enough to destroy the probe. Will NASA’s plan save the mission? *The June Solstice has arrived The June Solstice occurred at 22:33:59 GMT or 08:33:59 Australian Eastern Standard time on the morning of Tuesday June 21st as the Sun reached zenith -- appearing to be directly over the tropic of cancer at a point in the Pacific Ocean about 238 kilometres north of Honolulu, Hawaii. For our listeners in the northern hemisphere that means summer has arrived while for us south of the equator it means winter has well and truly set in. *Space Station Crew return to Earth Three crew members from the International Space Station have returned safely to Earth wrapping up a 186 day mission in orbit. Expedition 47 Commander NASA’s Tim Kopra , ESA flight engineer Tim Peake and Roscosmos Soyuz TMA-19M Commander Yuri Malenchenko of touched down on the remote Kazakhstan step. *It’s been a busy time for Russian space missions In addition to their manned spaceflight program Roscosmos has also launched a ROKOT rocket carrying a scientific satellite, and a Proton rocket carrying a telecommunications satellite.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Episode 37 - Destroyed planet shows signs of limestone in its rubble
Hi, Stuart with the Show Notes for Series 19 Episode 37: *Destroyed planet shows signs of limestone in its rubble Astronomers have discovered a planet that may have been encrusted in Calcium-carbonate limestone -- a mineral normally associated with marine life here on Earth. Scientists made the discovery while studying a white dwarf called SDSS J1043+0855 that appears to be accreting the outermost layers of a differentiated, rocky exo-planet which is part of the planetary system orbiting the white dwarf. *New study shows where the Moon’s water came from A new study has concluded that like the Earth -- the Moon probably acquired what little water it has through asteroid collisions rather than comets. The findings show most of the water inside the Moon was delivered by asteroids during the early lunar evolution between 4.5-4.3 billion years ago. *Four new elements on the periodic table Four new elements have now been formally added to the periodic table by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry. The four elements with atomic numbers 113, 115, 117 and 118 were originally announced back in January and given the temporary names originally reserved for these atomic numbers which round out the seventh row of the periodic table. *World’s most powerful rocket launches new spy satellite The world’s most powerful rocket the Delta IV heavy has successfully placed a new spy satellite into orbit. The National Reconnaissance Office NROL-37 mission blasted off from Space Launch Complex-37 at the Cape Canaveral Air Force base in Florida following delays due to poor weather conditions. *Sky Watch And we turn our eyes to the skies with Jonathan Nally -- the editor of Australian Sky and Telescope magazine – who joins us to check out the night skies of June.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Episode 36 - Small blue galaxy could shed new light on Big Bang
Hi, Stuart with the Show Notes for Series 19 Episode 36. *Small blue galaxy could shed new light on Big Bang Astronomers have discovered a faint blue nearby galaxy which could shed new light on the early history of the universe. The galaxy contains similar proportions of chemical elements to those thought to have been in existence shortly after the big bang. *Elliptical galaxies not formed by merging A controversial new study claims big elliptical galaxies were formed in very ancient times through a process of local -- in situ -- star formation. The new findings are based on new computer models which contradict existing galactic evolution hypotheses involving ellipticals forming through mergers of smaller spiral galaxies. *America’s next space plane on order The United States is moving forward with plans for a new reusable winged spaceplane capable of delivering satellites and other payloads into orbit on a daily basis with turnaround times of just 24 hours between flights. The new vehicle will provide the first stage of a new multi-stage rocket carrying one or more expendable upper stages which will deploy small payloads of up to 2.3 tonnes into low earth orbit. *NASA's Juno Spacecraft Crosses Jupiter/Sun Gravitational Boundary NASA's Juno spacecraft has crossed the Jupiter/Sun Gravitational Boundary an important milestone in its mission to study the solar system’s largest planet. Once in orbit, the spacecraft will spend at least 20 months circling the Jovian world 37 times, skimming to within 4300 kilometers above the planet's cloud tops.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Episode 34 - The Milky Way’s ancient core revealed
Hi everyone, Stuart with the Show Notes for Series 19 Episode 34... * The Milky Way’s ancient core revealed Astronomers have peered deep into the heart of the Milky Way, unveiling an ancient population of stars in the galactic core that are some ten billion years old. The findings show these stars -- known as RR Lyrae variables -- are orbiting the galactic centre differently to most other stars, providing new clues about the early history of the Milky Way’s formation. * New measurement for the size of the Milky Way A new study has determined the total mass of the Milky Way Galaxy. The new findings indicate the galaxy is about 7 x 10^11 solar masses – which is about 700 billion times the mass of our Sun. *Binary star systems implicated in the birth of hot Jupiters Since the discovery of the first hot Jupiter --51 Peg b – over 20 years ago, more than 300 similar planetary systems have been found.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Episode 33 - Possible case for fifth force of nature
Hi everyone...Stuart with the Show Notes for Series 19 Episode 33 *Possible case for fifth force of nature There are fresh rumours abounding in the normally genteel worlds of particle physics and astronomy concerning the possible discovery of a fifth fundamental force in nature. At present the standard model of particle physics describes four fundamental forces. The problem is the model can’t explain dark matter which makes up 80 percent of all the matter in the universe. *Rosetta’s comet has key ingredients for life Ingredients crucial for the origin of life on Earth, including the simple amino acid glycine and phosphorus, key components of DNA and cell membranes, have been discovered by the Rosetta spacecraft on Comet 67P. The discovery supports the idea that life on Earth arrived in comets. *Evidence of Martian ice age New radar measurements taken by NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft have revealed that the red planet is emerging from an ice age. The findings reported in the journal Science will help researchers better understand the long term Martian climate, allowing them to determine when the planet was habitable. *First inflatable space habitation module successfully inflated The first ever inflatable space habitation module has been successfully inflated aboard the International Space Station. The Bigelow Expandable Activity Module or BEAM will remain attached to the space station’s Tranquility module for two years. *Falcon 9‘s second launch this month SpaceX have successfully launched its 25th Falcon 9 rocket carrying a telecommunications satellite into orbit. The company was also to successfully return their Falcon 9 main stage to a landing barge positioned in the Atlantic Ocean 680 kilometres east of the Cape Canaveral launch site.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Episode 32 - Possible link between dark matter and primordial black holes
Hi everyone- Stuart with the Show Notes for Series 19 Episode 32... *Possible link between dark matter and primordial black holes A new theory has provided a possible link between dark matter and an ancient yet to be discovered population of black holes. Dark matter is now widely thought to be some form of massive exotic particle. An intriguing alternative view is that dark matter is made of black holes formed during the first second of our universe’s existence, known as primordial black holes. *Martian mega tsunamis Astronomers studying the northern lowlands of Mars have found evidence of two massive mega-tsunamis which inundated the region. The findings are based on new geologic mapping of the red planet’s northern plains which found vast sedimentary deposits that were likely put there by two mega-tsunami events. *Space weather linked to mysterious Martian plumes Mysterious clouds seen appearing suddenly in the martian atmosphere may be linked to space weather. Amateur astronomers were the first to report an unusual cloud-like plume in 2012 that topped-out high above the surface of Mars at an altitude around 250 km. *Galileo satellite launch A Russian Roscosmos Soyuz rocket has blasted off from the European Space Agency’s Kourou space port in French Guiana carrying two new Galileo navigation satellites into orbit. The launch brings Europe’s Galileo satellite navigation system constellation halfway to completion. Once complete the Galileo satellite navigation system will consist of 24 satellites plus spares, providing a civilian managed alternative to the American GPS, Russian Glonass and Chinese Beidou satellite navigation systems. *Redesigned Antares rolls out onto the launch pad for the first time Orbital Sciences have rolled out their new improved Antares rocket as preparations continue for the launch vehicle’s return to flight status following a spectacular crash and burn failure just seconds after launch in 2014 Subscribe, rate and review at iTunes; audioBoom; Stitcher; Pocketcasts; Podbean; Tunein Radio; Radioline or any good podcatcher app. Stream this and previous episodes via www.spacetimewithstuartgary.com or www.bitesz.com ...and please join our Insiders email list while there.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Episode 31 - Jovian moon has Earth like ocean
Hi...Stuart with the Show Notes for Series 19 Episode 31: *Jovian moon has Earth like ocean Scientists have concluded that the oceans on Jupiter’s ice moon Europa are far more Earth like than previously thought. Deep ocean hydrothermal vents are increasingly being seen as potential cradles for the creation of life on Earth. The new NASA research suggests that the necessary balance of chemical energy for life could also exist in the sub-surface oceans of Europa. *New micrometeorite study sheds light on Earth’s early atmosphere A new study of the oldest micrometeorites ever found has discovered that Earth’s ancient atmosphere had similar oxygen levels to the air we breathe today. The new findings contradict existing evidence showing that early Earth had extremely low oxygen levels until the appearance of photosynthetic organisms. *Indian space shuttle launched India has carried out a successful test flight of its new prototype space shuttle. The flight is the first step in the Indian Space Research Organization’s program to develop a two stage to orbit reusable delta winged space plane. *Mars in Opposition On May 30th the red planet Mars will be just 75,317,299.2 kilometres from Earth – the closest it’s been in eleven years. The close encounter comes just days after Mars was in opposition -- the point it the red planet’s orbit when it was directly opposite the Earth from the Sun.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Episode 30 - The largest solar system body without a name
Hi everyone...Stuart with the Show Notes for episode 30 in Series 19...and don't forget you can see an enhanced version complete with photos at http://www.bitesz.com/spacetime-show-notes * The largest solar system body without a name A new study has found that a previously identified object in the Kuiper belt qualifies as the largest unnamed body in the solar system. The revised measurement of 2007 OR10 shows its significantly larger than previously thought – only about one-third smaller than Pluto -- and about a hundred kilometres larger than the dwarf planet Makemake. *First direct observation of magnetic reconnection Spacecraft have for the first time flown through the heart of a magnetic reconnection event -- the process that controls Earth's space weather and geomagnetic storms. The NASA probes intercepted the magnetic reconnection event at the boundary where Earth's magnetic field lines meet the field lines coming from the Sun. *China’s new super dish radio telescope to be ready this year Construction of a giant half kilometre wide radio telescope dish in China is expected to be completed this year. The massive new telescope is being built with help from the CSIRO in a natural basin in the landscape of southwestern China. *Space Station hit by space debris Space debris has impacted the International Space Station gouging out a tiny crater in the window of the orbiting outposts observation cupola. The impact produced a 7 millimetre circular chip on one of the cupola’s quad layered fused-silica and borosilicate-glass windows. *Space Station set’s a record On Monday May 16, the International Space Station celebrated it’s 100,000th orbit of the Earth. That’s some 4,254,046,974 kilometres -- which is the same as ten round trips to Mars -- or a mission to Neptune the most distant planet – for now at least -- in the solar system.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Episode 29 - Hints of an unexpected new particle getting stronger
Hi...Stuart with the Show Notes: In this episode... *Hints of an unexpected new particle getting stronger There’s growing evidence supporting the possible discovery of a new sub atomic particle at the Large Hadron Collider. If confirmed, the discovery would dramatically change the standard model of particle physics – sciences understanding of the universe at its most elemental level. *Kepler Mission Announces Largest Collection of Planets Ever Discovered NASA's planet hunting Kepler space telescope has verified 1,284 new planets -- the single largest finding of planets so far. The announcement more than doubles the total number of confirmed planets discovered by Kepler and provides the strongest evidence yet that most stars have planetary systems. *Earth’s Mantle causing the planet’s surface to move up and down like a yo-yo A new study has found convection in the Earth’s mantle is causing the planet’s surface to constantly move up and down by hundreds of metres in geologically short time scales of just a million years. A report in the journal Nature-Geoscience, claims the wave-like movements of the mantle are occurring at an order of magnitude faster than previously thought. *Dragon splash down A SpaceX Dragon cargo ship has successfully splashed down in the North Pacific Ocean carrying more than 1680 kilograms of returned scientific experiments and samples from the International Space Station. The capsule’s cargo included experiments on long duration human spaceflight needed for manned missions to Mars.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Episode 28 - The mystery of KIC 8462852
Hi - Stuart with the Show Notes for Series 19 Episode 28. *KIC mystery not solved but it’s most likely not aliens For months the tabloids have been speculating about the strange goings on around a distant star which could be providing the first scientific evidence of life – intelligent life – beyond Earth. At the centre of the speculation is that the mysterious star KIC 8462852. Hundreds of uneven, unnatural-looking dips have appeared in the star’s light curve which are difficult to explain through normal astronomical actions. *Flying Observatory Detects Atomic Oxygen in Martian Atmosphere A new study of atomic oxygen in the Martian atmosphere has discovered that levels have dropped dramatically over the last forty years. Atomic oxygen has a significant impact on the red planet’s atmosphere, because it affects how other gases escape the planet. *A rare celestial spectacle as Mercury transits the Sun In a celestial spectacle lasting some seven and a half hours, sky watchers were mesmerized as Mercury -- looking like a tiny black dot -- slowly crossed in front of the blazing disk of the Sun as seen from Earth. The rare astronomical event -- known as a transit -- only occurs about 13 times in a century. *SpaceX nails another mission SpaceX has successfully placed a Japanese communications satellite into orbit -- and successfully returned the rocket’s main booster stage back to the surface for eventual refurbishment and for reuse. The 70 metre tall Falcon 9 rocket carrying the JCSAT 14 communications satellite blasted off from Launch Complex 40 at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Base in Florida with its 9 Merlin 1D first stage engines lighting up the night sky with a fiery orange trail with 1.5 million pounds of thrust.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Episode 27 - The search for life beyond our solar system
Hi everyone, Stuart with the Show Notes for Series 19 Episode 27: Discovery of the best targets yet in the search for life beyond our solar system Astronomers have discovered three planets with sizes and temperatures similar to Earth -- and which they are now describing as the best targets found so far in the search for life beyond our solar system. The planetary trio were found orbiting an ultra-cool dwarf star about forty light years from Earth in the constellation of Aquarius the water carrier. Monster supermassive black hole forms out of galactic collision A monster black hole almost 4 billion times the mass of the Sun has been discovered forming out of a mammoth collision involving three merging spiral galaxies. The new findings are providing scientists with fresh insights into galactic evolution and the growth of supermassive black holes. Nearby massive star explosion equaled detonation of 100 million Suns Astronomers have discovered that a giant star in a nearby galaxy that went supernova 30 million years ago -- exploded with the power of 100 million Sun’s – making it one of the most powerful explosions in our cosmic neighborhood in recent years. The mega blast of supernova 2013ej in the spiral galaxy M74 in the constellation Pisces in 2013 blew stellar material out from the star at ten thousand kilometres per second -- equivalent to 36 million kilometres an hour.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Episode 26 - Galaxy Clusters Reveal Information About Dark Energy
Hi - Stuart with the Show Notes for Series 19 Episode 26: Galaxy Clusters Reveal Information About Dark Energy A new study has confirmed that the properties of a mysterious force called dark energy which will determine the ultimate fate of the universe have not changed for billions of years. The findings support the idea that dark energy is best explained by Albert Einstein’s “cosmological constant,” and is equivalent to the energy of empty space. Back from the deep freeze Astronomers have discovered a unique comet that appears to have formed in the inner solar system and was then flung out into the deep freeze of the far outer reaches of the solar system, from where it has now returned. This comet could therefore provide important clues about the environment in which the Earth formed 4.6 billion years ago. Starshot interstellar space ship Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking has teamed up with Russian entrepreneur, venture capitalist, and physicist Yuri Milner to promote a plan to send a spacecraft to another star system within a generation. The target will be our nearest stellar neighbour Alpha Centauri 4.3 light-years or 39.9 trillion kilometres away.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Ep 23 - The search to solve the mystery of Dark Matter
Hi...Stuart with the Show Notes for Ep 23: The search to solve the mystery of Dark Matter Scientists may be closing in on that mysterious substance called Dark Matter. A slew of new experiments and detectors are either operational or under construction to discover what makes up the unknown 80 percent of all the matter in the universe. NASA's Fermi poised to pin down gravitational wave sources Astronomers say they detected a sudden burst of Gamma Ray energy from the same region of space as the gravitational waves detected last September from a pair of merging black holes over a billion light years away. If confirmed, the would represent both the first evidence of electromagnetic radiation from the gravitational wave event, and also the first evidence contradicting existing hypothesis that black holes merge "cleanly," without producing any sort of light. Venus Express’s demise sheds light on the planet’s polar atmosphere Some of the final results sent back by the European Space Agency’s Venus Express mission before the probes suicide plunge through the planet’s atmosphere have revealed it to be rippling with atmospheric waves -- and, at an average temperature far colder than anywhere on Earth.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Ep.22 - The Fast Radio Bursts mystery continues
Hi everyone....Stuart with the Show Notes: The Fast Radio Bursts mystery continues Astronomers have detected what appears to be the first ever repeating Fast Radio Burst – a mysterious flash of electro-magnetic radiation lasting just a millisecond but powerful enough to be visible half way across the universe. If correct the discovery dramatically changes sciences understanding of what these ephemeral events are. Dark matter dwarf galaxy detected Scientists have found a hidden dark matter dwarf galaxy lurking some four billion light years away in the halo of another larger galaxy. The discovery could help astronomers address important questions on the nature of mysterious dark matter. Interstellar space dust discovered near Saturn NASA's Cassini spacecraft has detected the faint but distinct signature of interstellar dust grains from beyond our solar system. Astronomers say 36 alien dust grains were detected among the millions gathered by Cassini’s over the past 12 years exploring the ringed world of Saturn and its many moons. New surprises from Jupiter’s ice moon Europa A new study of the frozen Jovian ice moon Europa indicates gravitational tidal forces generated by its orbit around Jupiter is generating far more heat than previously thought. The new findings work could ultimately help scientists better estimate the thickness of Europa’s icy crust.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Ep.21 - Mysteries and new understandings
Hi, Stuart with the Show Notes: Mysterious alignment of supermassive black holes discovered in the distant universe. Astronomers have been shocked by new deep radio imaging which has revealed that supermassive black holes in a region of the distant universe are all spinning out radio jets in the same direction. The bizarre findings are totally unexpected -- based on our current understanding of cosmology. A new study bringing science a step closer to understanding antimatter. Scientists are developing new numerical models to better understand why we live in a universe composed mostly of matter rather than antimatter. Existing cosmological theory tells us that equal amounts of matter and antimatter were made in the big bang 13.8 billion years ago, and the laws of physics show that matter and antimatter annihilate each other if they come into contact. So that raises the question: why didn’t the universe explode and cease to exist immediately and why do we live a universe made of matter rather than antimatter? The strange system challenging existing models on dark matter and hypervelocity stars. Astronomers have discovered a strange star system on the outskirts of our Milky Way Galaxy travelling at almost our galaxies escape velocity. The discovery challenges existing hypothesis that hypervelocity stars are flung onto their high speed trajectories by the supermassive black hole at the galactic centre. New study explores links between cosmic rays and galaxy formation New computer simulations indicate that cosmic rays – high speed subatomic particles produced in supernovae explosions -- may play a vital role in the formation of galaxies and galaxy clusters. The findings will help scientists trying to understand how galaxies are made which is among the greatest problems facing modern astrophysics.

Space Time with Stuart Gary Series 19 Ep. 20 - SpaceX's Dragon revolutionising space flight...
Hi everyone...Stuart with the Show Notes: Revolutionising space flight with the arrival of a flying dragon at the International Space Station. SpaceX’s Dragon has opened a new era in spaceflight delivering the first inflatable module to the International Space Station. The flight was a double success with the Falcon 9 launch vehicle successfully landing on a barge floating in the North Atlantic Ocean, from where it was picked up for refurbishment for potential reuse on future missions. Red Dwarfs provide a new way of mapping the Milky Way Galaxy. Scientists have developed a new map of the Milky Way using the galaxies most common stars, tiny and faint red dwarfs. The result is the most comprehensive model ever for the distribution of these stars. The mystery deepens for Fast Radio Bursts. Fast Radio Bursts -- those mysterious ephemerally brief millisecond flashes of powerful radio signals from beyond our galaxy -- are continuing to baffle astronomers, with new evidence showing that a key clue to their origins was wrong.

Space Time with Stuart Gary Series 19 Ep 19 - Supernovae showered Earth with radioactive debris
Hi everyone...Stuart here with the Show Notes: Supernovae showered Earth with radioactive debris The Earth was showered with radioactive debris from a series of nearby exploding stars which all went supernova just a few million years ago. The findings are based on the discovery of radioactive deposits of iron 60, found in sediment and crust samples taken from the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian Oceans. Behemoth Black Hole Found in an Unlikely Place Astronomers have discovered a near-record breaking supermassive black hole -- some 17 billion times the mass of the Sun -- in an unlikely location in a sparsely populated region of the universe. The observations mean these monsters may be far more common than previously thought. Traffic gridlock aboard the International Space Station A Russian cargo ship has successfully docked with the International space station two days after blasting off on a Soyuz rocket from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in the central Asian republic of Kazakhstan. The Progress arrived on station just days after an American Cygnus cargo ship reached the orbiting outpost, with anther American Dragon cargo ship is also slated to dock this month. New Space tourism rocket makes third sub-orbital flight. Blue Origin have carried out a successful sub-orbital test flight of the company’s new reusable vertical take-off and vertical landing New Shepard spacecraft. The launch from Blue Origin’s west Texas facility reached an altitude of over 103 kilometres, the highest yet it has flown.

Space Time with Stuart Gary Series 19 Ep.18 - More evidence for Planet 9 from outer space
Hi everyone....here are the Show Notes: More evidence for Planet 9 from outer space There’s new evidence today supporting the idea of a yet to be discovered ninth planet in our solar system. Back in January, we reported on StarStuff that strange orbital alignments involving at least 6 distant Kuiper belt objects were pointing to the existence of a ninth planet at least ten times the mass of the Earth -- now astronomers have discovered a seventh Kuiper belt object on a similar strange orbital trajectory -- further supporting this hypothesis. Making Gold Scientists are looking at a new method of making gold. It’s not some new form of medieval alchemy turning sea water into the valuable yellow metal -- but a new look at exactly how the element gold is produced in stars. Is dark matter responsible for creating supermassive black holes? Astronomers are fairly sure that stellar mass black holes are formed when the most massive stars die and explode as supernovae. But they’ve never been able to explain the formation of those monstrous supermassive black holes found in the hearts of galaxies. Now a new study suggests a mysterious substance called dark matter could be to blame.

Space Time with Stuart Gary Series 19 Ep.17 - Searching for gamma ray emissions from black holes
Hi...Stuart here with the Show Notes for Ep.17...here's what's on the show: Searching for gamma ray emissions from black holes. Astronomers have failed to find any electromagnetic counterpart signal to the historic first ever direct detection of gravitational waves. The lack of an afterglow provides further support for the idea that the event was generated by a pair of black holes – 1.3 billion light years away -- as they spiralled in towards each other before merging. Continuing the search for gravitational waves While scientists were able to announce the confirmed detection of gravitational waves for the first time, the precise epicentre where those waves originated from is still a mystery. Pin pointing the exact location of a gravitational wave source will be of vital importance for studying the objects generating them. Alien world blacker than coal Astronomers have discovered distant gas giant similar to Jupiter -- but far more alien than any planet in our solar system. Instead of displaying Jupiter’s gleaming white and pink coloured clouds, this strange exoplanet is darker than the blackest lump of coal reflecting just one percent of the light reaching it. Asteroid slams into Jupiter Amateur astronomers in Austria and Ireland got the shot of a lifetime when they imaged what’s thought to be an asteroid slamming into Jupiter. At least two sky watchers were independently videoing the gas giant on March 17 when they both caught a massive ejecta blast erupting on the Jovian limb -- north of the planet’s equator.

Japan is trying to re-establish communication with its ASTRO-H X-ray observatory spacecraft which appears to be tumbling in orbit out of control. Mission managers are also tracking several pieces of what could be debris near the spacecraft - indicating the possibility of the satellite breaking up. Saturn’s rings may be younger than the Dinosaurs A new study claims Saturn’s famous rings as well as some of its icy moons may be only a hundred million years old, dating to a time after the reign of the dinosaurs began on Earth. The findings are based on new computer simulations of the orbital history of some of Saturn’s inner moons. Weird planet discovered with comet like orbit Astronomers have detected a distant world which orbits its star more like a comet than a planet. While many giant Jupiter like gas planets have been detected orbiting other star systems – none has ever been seen with such an extremely elongated and eccentric orbit. One of the closest ever cometary flybys of Earth in recorded history Astronomers have had an opportunity to study two comets up close and personal as they both pass close to Earth. One of the celestial visitors flew just 3.6 million kilometres above Earth – the last comet to come closer to Earth was way back in 1770.

Space Time with Stuart Gary Series 19 Ep.15 - First ever detection of the binary partner involved in type 1a supernova explosion.
Hi everyone...Stuart here...with the Show Notes for Episode 15: First ever detection of the binary partner involved in type 1a supernova explosion. Astronomers have for the first time ever detected a binary companion to a star which exploded as a thermonuclear or type 1a supernova. The discovery provides a deeper understanding of these spectacular stellar blasts which are used as cosmic distance markers and provided the conclusive evidence of the accelerated expansion of the universe due to some unknown force which astronomers have named dark energy. Glittering globular clusters reveal their stellar secrets. Scientists have discovered that massive stellar groups known as globular star clusters can produce additional generations of stars by drawing-in fresh supplies of star forming molecular gas and dust from their surrounding galaxy. The findings mean globular star clusters are far more complex than astronomers previously thought. How solar storms trigger Jupiter's auroral lights. A new study has revealed that solar storms trigger Jupiter's intense northern and southern auroral lights by generating a new X-ray aurora eight times brighter than normal and hundreds of times more energetic than Earth's aurorae. The findings represent the first time Jupiter's X-ray aurora has been studied as a giant storm from the Sun hit the planet. Cygnus Cargo ship launched to space station. An Atlas 5 rocket has successfully blasted off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, carrying a Cygnus cargo ship loaded with supplies and experiments to the International Space Station. The Cygnus -- which is loaded with almost 3.4 tonnes of equipment -- will be captured by the space station’s robotic arm and maneuvered into a docking port tomorrow.

Hi everyone....Stuart here with your Show Notes for Ep. 14: Supernova secrets revealed The brilliant flash from the initial blast of a supernova explosion known as a shock breakout, has been captured for the first time. The discovery will improve sciences understanding of these cataclysmic stellar death blasts which are powerful enough to briefly outshine an entire galaxy. New monster spiral galaxies discovered A strange new kind of galactic beast has been discovered in the cosmic wilderness – hiding in plain sight. Dubbed "super spirals," these unprecedented galaxies dwarf our own spiral galaxy, the Milky Way, and compete in size and brightness with the largest known galaxies in the universe…the giant elliptical. Hubble unveils some of the most massive stars ever seen The Hubble Space Telescope has opened a new vista into a massive star forming region in the Tarantula Nebula which is home to some of the biggest stars in the universe. Astronomers combined images taken by two separate Hubble instruments to dissect the young cluster in unprecedented details. Expedition 47 blasts off bound for the International Space Station A Russian Soyuz rocket has blasted off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in the central Asian republic of Kazakhstan carrying three new crew members to the International Space Station.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Ep.13 - Distant lonely planet no rogue
Hi every one...here's what's in Series 19 Episode 13 - Cheers Stuart... Distant lonely planet no rogue Astronomers have discovered that a distant planet…long thought to be floating free through space without a host star…has been found to be orbiting a star after all. However, the planet orbits its host star at a distance of a trillion kilometres -- three times greater than any other planetary system ever discovered -- and some seven thousand times further out than Earth's orbit around the Sun. Unexpected changes in the bright spots on Ceres Scientists have discovered unexpected changes in the mysterious bright spots on the dwarf planet Ceres...the largest body in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter. Although Ceres appears as little more than a point of light from the Earth, very careful observations shows evidence that the spots constantly brighten and fade. Rosetta finds magnetic field-free bubble at comet The European Space Agency’s Rosetta spacecraft has revealed a surprisingly large region around Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko which is totally devoid of any magnetic field. The findings have come as a surprise to scientists who didn’t expected to be able to detect such a region. Close comet flyby threw Mars' magnetic field into chaos A new study has found that the recent close encounter of Comet Siding Spring with Mars has had a profound impact on both the red planet’s atmosphere and magnetic field. Astronomers found Comet Siding Spring plunged the magnetic field around Mars into chaos -- blowing away part of the Martian upper atmosphere in the same way a strong solar storm would.

SpaceTime Series 19 Ep.12 - A detailed study of the biggest black hole in the known universe
Hi everyone...Stuart here...and here are the Show Notes for Ep. 12: A detailed study of the biggest black hole in the known universe Astronomers study one of the biggest supermassive black holes in the known universe, a monster 18 billion times the mass of our Sun. The supermassive black hole powers a quasar called OJ287 which lies about 3.5 billion light years away from Earth. Nearest habitable zone Earth like planet discovered Scientists have discovered the nearest habitable zone planet to our solar system -- a super Earth located just 14 light years away. The planet is orbiting within the star’s so-called 'goldilocks zone' -- the habitable zone where it’s possible for liquid water - and maybe even life - to exist. ExoMars 2016 blasts off on a mission to search for life on the red planet The ExoMars 2016 mission has successfully blasted off from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in the central Asian republic of Kazakhstan on a Russian Proton -M rocket bound for the red planet Mars. The joint European Space Agency and Roscosmos mission will take seven months to reach Mars where it will begin searching for the origins of the red planet’s seasonal increase in atmospheric methane levels. Russian Earth imaging satellite launched Just a day before the launch of the ExoMars mission, a new civilian operated Russian Earth observation satellite was launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome aboard a Soyuz 2-1b rocket. The Resurs P3 is on a five year mission providing Moscow with an orbital fleet of three digital remote sensing Earth observation satellites. India launches new regional navigation satellite India has successfully launched the latest member of its regional navigation satellite system.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Ep.11 - LISA Pathfinder begins its science mission and more
Hi everyone ..Stuart here. And here's what's in this edition of SpaceTime: LISA Pathfinder begins its science mission The LISA Pathfinder gravitational wave space observatory has now commenced its long awaited scientific mission. After completing a long series of tests on the spacecraft and payload, the European Space Agency have now started a six-month program conducting hundreds of experiments to pave the way for future space-borne gravitational-wave observatories. The expansion of the universe simulated Physicists have developed a new code of numerical simulations that offers a glimpse of the complex process causing both the expansion of the universe and the creation of new structures by the merging of others. Based on Albert Einstein’s equations, they were able to integrate the rotation of space-time into their calculations and determine the amplitude of gravitational waves, whose existence was confirmed for the first time last month. New explanation for "snowball Earth" events A new study claims our planet went through a period of extreme freezing – known as snowball Earth -- because of extensive marine volcanism caused by the breakup of the Rodinia supercontinent 750 million years ago. The research provides a single mechanism to explain several different aspects of the snowball Earth state, rather than needing a whole bunch of different mechanisms working together. New Ariane 5 launch prepares the way for the next generation Ariane 6 rocket An Ariane 5 heavy lift rocket has blasted off from the European Space Agency’s Kourou space port in French Guiana carrying a telecommunications satellite into orbit.

SpaceTime Series 19 Ep.10 - Hubble breaks cosmic distance record, How Mars got it's tilt and more
Hi everyone - Stuart here....and here's what's in this episode of SpaceTime: Hubble breaks cosmic distance record Astronomers have shattered the cosmic distance record by measuring the distance to the most remote galaxy ever seen in the Universe -- a stellar city that existed just 400 million years after the big bang 13.8 billion years ago. The amazing discovery was achieved by pushing the Hubble Space Telescope to its absolute limits. Scientists watch the Moon breath Researchers have watched the Moon's tenuous atmosphere -- known as an exosphere -- change depending on its exposure to the Sun and to meteor showers. The findings help astronomers better understand the physics of exospheres which are one of the most dominate types of atmospheres in the solar system. How Mars got its tilt A new study claims the surface of Mars was dramatically tilted around 3 to 3.5 billion years ago by a massive volcanic structure known as the Tharsis dome, which is the largest in the Solar System. Because of its extraordinary mass, the Tharsis dome caused the red planet’s crust and mantle to rotate around its core. The discovery of this huge shift changes our vision of Mars during the first billion years of its history, at a time when life may have emerged on the red planet. SpaceX finally flies on its fifth attempt After five launch attempts spanning almost two weeks a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket has finally blasted off from the Cape Canaveral Air Force base in Florida, carrying the SES-9 telecommunication satellite into orbit. The Falcon 9 trailed a golden orange plume as it flew over the Atlantic Ocean carrying its Boeing built satellite into geostationary orbit.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Ep.9 - Fast Radio Burst mystery deepens & more...
In Episode 9: Fast Radio Burst mystery deepens Astronomers for the first time have detected repeating Fast Radio Bursts -- short bursts of radio waves from an enigmatic source located well beyond our Milky Way galaxy. Prior to this discovery, all previously detected Fast Radio Bursts have appeared to be one-off events. What if E.T. called us and nobody heard? As scientists step up their search for other life in the universe, two astrophysicists are proposing a way to make sure we don't miss the signal if extraterrestrial observers try to contact us first. The scientists say the best chance for us finding a signal from beyond is to presume that extraterrestrial observers are using the same methods to search for us that we are using to search for life beyond Earth. Asteroid close encounter Astronomers around the world will be counting down to the extremely close flyby of asteroid 2013 TX68 which could pass just 17,700 kilometres above the ground tomorrow March 5th. However, scientists admit they won’t know exactly how close the 35-metre-wide space rock will get until after the flyby occurs. ExoMars prepares for launch All systems are go for this month’s launch of the ExoMars 2016 spacecraft bound for the red planet. The joint Roscosmos and European Space Agency mission is slated to launch on a Russian Proton rocket from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in the central Asian republic of Kazakhstan on March 14. Where did the Martian moon Phobos come from? NASA scientists are closer to solving the mystery of how the Martian moon Phobos formed. NASA's Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution spacecraft (MAVEN) has made a series of close approaches to the 28-kilometre-wide moon collecting data from within 500 kilometres of its surface. Expedition 46 crew return to Earth after record breaking space flight The Russian Soyuz TMA-18M capsule has returned safely to Earth carrying the expedition 46 crew from the International Space Station. Among those aboard the spacecraft as it touched down on the cold Kazakhstan steps was US astronaut Scott Kelly who set a new American record for long duration human space flight of 340 days in orbit.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Ep.8 - The mystery of the IBEX ribbon & more
Show Notes: The mystery of the IBEX ribbon Astronomers are a step closer to finally solving the mystery of the IBEX ribbon spotted at the edge of the solar system eight years ago. New computer simulations and data from NASA’s IBEX spacecraft are pointing to ionized solar wind particles streaming back into the solar system after interacting with interstellar space galactic magnetic fields. Invisible gas clouds appear shaped like dark noodles Astronomers have been given their best view yet of the giant interstellar gas clouds which make up a significant amount of the Milky Way galaxy’s matter. The invisible structures known as Extreme Scattering Events are high density lumps in the thin electrically charged gas between the stars in our Galaxy and appear to be shaped like noodles, lasagna sheets or possibly even hazelnuts. New Subatomic particle discovered Scientists at Fermilab have discovered a new particle—the latest member to be added to the exotic species of particles known as tetraquarks. The new discovery by the DZero experiment is of the first tetraquark candidate composed of four different quark flavours. Supernova puzzle close to being solved New observations using the Hubble Space Telescope have confirmed that a supernova which exploded more than three years ago is continuing to shine far brighter than expected. The supernova known as SN 2012cg could have important implications for astronomy’s ability to measure cosmic distances across the universe.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary - Series 19 Episode 7 Source of mysterious Fast Radio Bursts finally identified Scientists have finally pinpointed the source of mysterious celestial events called Fast Radio Bursts. The strong pulse of radio waves lasting just millisecond was identified coming from an elliptical galaxy six billion light years away -- half way across the universe and back through time. Van Allen Radiation Belts are even stranger than imagined New data indicates the Earth’s Van Allen Radiation Belts could be very different in shape from what scientists have always thought. It seems the shape of the belts depends on what type of electron you’re looking at. Giant gas cloud explains galaxy’s missing “star forming” hydrogen Astronomers have discovered a spectacular plume of gas more than 300,000 light-years across streaming like the tail of a comet from a bright strange looking spiral galaxy. The massive hydrogen cloud is five times longer than the galaxy itself. Engineers working on new type of polar orbit Scientists are working to perfect a new type of satellite orbit which can keep a spacecraft above the north or south pole. The research is looking at how a satellite equipped with a large solar sail could partly offset gravity from both the Earth and the Sun with the slight but steady pressure of sunlight, allowing the spacecraft to hover above the Arctic or Antarctic, enabling continuous coverage of high-latitude regions for science and climate observation or for regional communication services.

Space Time with Stuart Gary Series 19 Ep.6 - Biggest known black hole discovered plus more...
In this episode....... Biggest known black hole discovered Astronomers have confirmed what could be the most massive black hole ever detected – a monster 21 billion times the mas of our Sun -- at the heart of a placid looking galaxy 300 million light years away. The record breaking supermassive black hole at the centre of the elliptical galaxy NGC 4889 in the Coma cluster, was detected in new images by the Hubble Space telescope. Five-dimensional black hole could 'break' general relativity Researchers have shown how a bizarrely shaped black hole could cause Einstein's general theory of relativity, a foundation of modern physics, to break down. However, the research also shows such an object could only exist in a universe with five or more dimensions. Pluto's surface is only ten million years old A new study claims Pluto's heart shaped Sputnik Planum region is only ten million years old -- far younger than the rest of the distant Kuiper Belt dwarf planet. The findings are based on a study of the number of impact craters detected on the frozen surface of Pluto by NASA's New Horizons spacecraft. Immense gas cloud to collide with the Milky Way Galaxy An immense gas cloud over 11 thousand light years wide is expected to slam into the Milky Way galaxy at over a million kilometres an hour. The cosmic collision which is expected to happen in about 30 million years from now, will spark a flurry of starburst triggering the formation of millions of new stars.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Ep. 5 - The aliens are silent because they're.....dead?
In this episode: Climate change showing Earth’s rotation A new study has confirmed that climate change caused by human activity such as burning coal, oil and other fossil fuels has both slowed Earth's rotation and caused a migration of the planet’s spin axis. A report in the journal Science Advances found the melting of glaciers caused by the world's rising temperatures has resulted in Earth's rotation slowing by about a thousandth of a second during the past century and the planet's rotational axis has been migrating at a rate of almost a centimeter per year. The aliens are silent because they’re dead A new study claims life on other planets would likely be brief and become extinct very quickly. The findings reported in the journal Astrobiology provide a possible explanation for what’s become known as the Fermi paradox – if the universe is full of alien life as often postulated why haven’t we found it yet? Third Sentinel satellite launched for Copernicus The European Space Agency has launched the third Sentinel Earth-observation satellite for Europe’s Copernicus environment programme. Sentinel-3A carries sensors to measure the temperature, colour and height of the sea surface as well as the thickness of sea ice. ASTRO-H launched JAXA the Japanese space agency has launched its new X-Ray astronomy satellite ASTRO-H aboard an H2A rocket from the Tanegashima Space Centre south of Tokyo. ASTRO-H is designed to study the hot and energetic universe using X-Ray eyes and extend into gamma ray wavelengths.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 19 Ep.4 - Goodbye Philae, hello gravitational waves...
Series 19 Ep.4 Show Notes: Hunting the light from gravitational waves After last week’s historic detection of gravitational waves, astronomers have begun the hunt for a possible corresponding light source. The new research will help scientists place limits on the brightness that can serve as a benchmark for future observations linked to gravitational wave detections. Ancient Babylonian tablets used to track Jupiter A series of newly deciphered ancient Babylonian cuneiform tablets represent the earliest known examples of mathematical and geometric astronomy. The five clay tablets show how the ancient Babylonians tracked the movement of Jupiter using a form of calculus -- 14 centuries before its invention in Europe. Goodbye Philae The European Space Agency’s Rosetta mission has said farewell to its lost comet lander Philae. There’s been no communication with the tiny vehicle on the surface of Comet 67P since July. New Western Australian space tracking dish opens for business A new radio dish has been inaugurated at the European Space Agency’s New Norcia tracking station near Perth for communicating with spacecraft. The dish is under the flight path of rockets launched from ESA’s Kourou space port in French Guiana. #space #astronomy #science #SpaceTime #philae SpaceTime with Stuart Gary is bought to you in association with Australian Sky & Telescope magazine.

Series 19 Ep.3 - Gravitational waves detected for the first time!
Stories in this episode: Gravitational waves detected for the first time Ripples in the fabric of spacetime known as gravitational waves have been directly seen for the first time. The historic announcement ends months of speculation and rumor. The Great Attractor Hundreds of galaxies hidden from view behind the Milky Way have been unveiled in unprecedented detail providing astronomers with new information about a mysterious object known as the Great Attractor. The findings shed new light on this massive gravitational anomaly, which appears to be drawing hundreds of thousands galaxies including the Milky Way towards it with a gravitational force equivalent to millions of billions of Suns. Earth's Ancient Crust Scientists have discovered 2.5 billion year old material from the ancient Earth in lava that's erupted from some oceanic volcanoes. The findings are the first evidence that Archean era planetary crust is being recycled through the mantle. Activity discovered on Saturnian moon Dione An 800 kilometre long mountain range on the Saturnian ice moon Dione is providing scientists with clues about how active the distant frozen world once was. The discovery also hints at possible continued activity even today. North Korea Satellite failure The satellite launched by North Korea last week appears to have failed to activate and is orbiting the Earth dead in space.

Welcome to Ep.2 of Series 19...thank you for your continued support. In this episode: North Korea fires a shot across the world's bow North Korea has launched a rocket into space sparking global condemnation and growing fears over Pyongyang's ever expanding nuclear weapons program. Pyongyang claims the rocket was carrying a scientific satellite, but the rest of the world is concerned the rocket was testing ballistic missile technology for nuclear weapons delivery systems. Most powerful supernova explosion ever seen Astronomers have detected what they think is the most powerful stellar explosion ever seen -- a massive supernova -- twice as powerful as anything previously recorded. the huge blast was 200 times more powerful than the average supernova, 570 billion times brighter than our Sun, and 20 times brighter than all the stars in our Milky Way Galaxy combined. NASA warns of asteroid threat NASA is keeping a close eye on a 30 metre asteroid which is expected to come awfully close to Earth next month. The space rock named 2013-TX68 could pass just 17,700 kilometres above the planet's surface on March 5th, lower than the orbits of many satellites. China launches new navigation satellite China has launched a Long March 3C rocket carrying another member of Beijing's Beidou satellite navigation system. As well as providing navigation services for Beijing, the new satellite also features a particle detector to study the space environment around its orbit. Europe laser communications satellite launched A Russian Proton rocket has successfully blasted into orbit carrying a new telecommunications satellite equipped with a laser communications system. The new European Data Relay System will provide emergency services with near real time data relay services improving maritime surveillance and disaster response times.
