"Astronomy Casper weekly facts based journey through the cosmos where we help you understand not only what we know. But how we know what we know I'm Fraser Cain publisher of University with me as always Dr Pamela Gay a senior scientists for the Planetary Science Institute and the cosmic if how you doing I'm doing well, how are you doing? Too. Good. Boy I've I've been talking a lot about life on Venus though that's that's my life that is the new. That is the new reality is just talking about life house life. I could be making the life, but the part that I love is the response now that there are some cool missions in the works that people are thinking of to send. I've seen a couple of really great ideas. Now, we've got people have something very specific to look at. So hopefully, we'll be able to follow up in a couple of years with some cool missions to. I hope. So it's the thing that really frustrates me is I know the timescale of going from thinking about a mission to building in sending the Michigan and it's like I want them to go figure this out while I'm alive. But the good thing is the Venus only takes a couple of months to reach. So it's Zaddar or or Mercury, right? Yeah. Mercury's a tough one to get to. But but hopefully, we'll get some answers. We'll get some answers for you everybody. Now. I've got some bad news for you though stars die they do at some point in the next few billion user. So our son is going to start heating up using a ball the fuel in its core, and then eventually die becoming a white dwarf. It'll then slowly cooled down to the background temperature of the universe becoming a black dwarf. Let's learn about this fascinating process. What's the timescale are versed? Why is the Son Dying? I mean we're all dying board and immoral. So the say it add ultimately it's just gonNA run out of energy. So the way that stars shine and support themselves in their core they're undergoing nuclear reactions now, exactly where in the core depends on the stage of evolution. Initially WANNA start turns on it's burning. Hydrogen it's it's going through the Proton Proton process and. All the light that has generated during this fusion because when the particles come together, they release energy as they fuse into something new and that energy pushes out against gravity supporting the outer layers of the star. And eventually, it runs out of fuel in the core. Yeah. So it's eventually going to run out of hydrogen in the core. The star is going to go through different changes in luminosity changes in color changes in size, it's GonNa end up burning hydrogen in a shell..

Discovering Comets

"I'm Freezer Cain publisher of university with me as always as Dr Pamela. Gay a senior scientist for the Planetary Science Institute and the Director of cosmic quest. How you doing I'm doing. Well how are you doing fraser? Great Full on Paradise is back here on the west coast of Canada. Everything is growing like crazy. I can't we'd fast enough to keep up with the the new plants that yes. Yeah yes I put eight bucky garbage pails out filled with yard waste for the garbage trucks to come and take away. This is madness. Yeah Yeah and it's it's beautiful like every everywhere you like. Oh it'll never like just looks like such horror show and then boy come. May everything just just paradise again. Love it up here. I did plant my ps too early and they have little frost tinged leaves for the ones that didn't get underneath my cold frame fast. Enough a weird we. We can plant our piece here January and that's pretty much can't plant them early enough. January's fine February. Yeah and then. That's the perfect timing because they like to be cold and then they come up and then yeah we actually have a very mild climate here on Vancouver Island compared to what you have. So Oh yeah well and you started your PS outside. I started mine inside. And you're like wait we. We don't like it out here to you. You always start them outside here. You don't you're it's crazy you're wasting your time you just dump you dump amount of peas into the ground and they are popping by by. March you start to get fresh peas off them by April. I didn't plan any this year. We've we've shifted everything deflowers because somebody likes flowers and hates hate peas although peas meek flowers flowers yeah but anyway let's get onto it so discovering comets is one of the fields that amateurs can still make regular contribution to astronomy but more and more comets are getting found by spacecraft automated systems and machine learning this week. We'll talk about how comets discovered in how you can get your name on one. Have you ever tried to be? Have you ever tried to discover a comment very briefly in graduate school? And then the fact that I had to do graduate. Schoolwork stopped that plan. Yeah so so. How did how did that work like man? I want my name on a comet. Well it was the Soho Data and so not every games. Yeah but it was just the I want to be the first one. It's it's like you see people who on threads on forms or like I and that's all they want to do. This is the comment equivalent of this. Because I just have to do everything nerdier so I wanted to be able to say I on an image of a comment and Soho data so all right so for I mean we've done episode whole epistle comments. We've talked about many things but for anyone who I guess I don't want I don't want to say like you don't don't don't explain what a comet is but explain explain in come off like this baby's first astronomy cast like. Let's let's bring things forward a little bit here. But at least let's talk about the features of comets as a relate to how and where we see them. Find them okay. So comets are small bodies in our solar system that when you apply enough heat grow a cloudy coma around them and a tale of debris that is getting pushed back from them by the solar wind their orbits tend to be a lot more elliptical than the orbits of Asteroids and so we often initially categorize something as asteroid or comet based on its orbit. Because when you find a comet far enough out you can't tell what its future may be but really the only difference between an asteroid and a comet is the ratio of things that melt and things that don't add inner solar system temperatures and we have those two varieties of commerce. We have the short period long period comets and. I'd say that we actually have three because we also have. Yeah sure you need to add behave like a long period comet and so short period comets they go around and around and around and they don't get that far away from the sun and they appear on a regular basis but I mean that can be Haley's comet once every seven years you see this thing flare back up again and again and again. While the long periods we're seeing them for the first time ever and chances are they've never been to the inner solar system and there's a really good chance that a lot of prior long period comets that we saw were actually interstellar and we just didn't know it because we didn't stop to think about it

Ethics of Commercial and Military Space

"I'm Fraser. Cain publisher of University with me as always Dr Pamela. Gay a senior scientist for the Planetary Science Institute and the Director of Bus Hip Pamela. Hey doing I'm doing well. How are you doing fraser a once again? The weather's just getting better and better. The apocalypse has never looked so. Lovely Garden is getting out of control. Is the chief sentence. It is now in control and we've got to cut it back. There's just too many plants too much grass too much weeds. I got many weeks ahead of me at this point out in the garden. The day of the trip is trying to be upon you exactly every year. More and more people are making their way to space. Some private citizens have already gotten their astronaut wings paying for a trip to space out of their own pocket. What are the ethical implications of this as the cost of spaceflight? Come down so we've got a new series. We're going to do like at least a two part series. Maybe at most two part series home. But this week we're going to talk about private spaceflight and just what are the ethical issues with this? Next week we will talk about military spaceflight. We're GONNA talk about Space Force. Although I think if we got timing a little better we could do. The episode after Space Force COMES OUT THE NEW TV show. Oh Yeah we can pull that off. Can we may thirty first. So let's talk about today. We'll talk about space tourism. The new movie that is planned next week will look at the trade off between commercial space and scientific exploration from the ground. So issues like the iridium satellites and of space resources for economic purposes. And then we'll go to space force. Okay now we've done two episodes about space tourism to fourteen and four fifty one to cover too much ground. But I think the thing that I found very interesting was just the way you had proposed it. Which is let's deal with the commercial and the ethics of this situation and we'll sort of see where that gets US first. Let's just talk about like? How do you define private spaceflight? When the purpose is the economic benefits of the parent company and its shareholders over the advancement of science and exploration causes that benefit mankind rather than stakeholders and. I mean like one version. That could very well be space. Tourism that you've got a space tourism company that is sending people on flights and they're having fun in going to the zero g hotel and enjoying themselves or flying to the moon and printing about on the moon in that low gravity but that is really just a sub set of what private spaceflight could look like so when you think about that larger umbrella. What are some other examples of the kinds of missions? We'd be run privately. Well this is where we start looking at. And this is what triggered this for me Sending people to spaced film adventure movies rather than to do the normal peacekeeping educational and scientific endeavors that take place on the space station even space tourists up until now have pretty much been tasked with. We're going to train you like an astronaut. You're GONNA do education stuff while you're up there too. And Hey we may throw you a bone and give you a little bit of science to do right but right now. Tom Cruise is looking to partner with spacex to partner with NASA and this has been tweeted out by NASA administrator. Jim Breitenstein they're gonNA film a not mission impossible but certainly an impossible mission on the International Space Station. Yeah I can't even imagine how awful difficult that process is going to be. I think I had a chance to interview someone who took the Imax seventy millimeter imax cameras up on the space station and tried to make a documentary. They gable the gave the astronauts. They taught them how to use these cameras than they had to. Fly Up with these cameras and try to shoot what they were doing. While they're up there and then send the footage back down or it was on the space shuttle. Anyway it was tough. Because it's a great big bulky professional camera that shoots an enormous amount of film at this huge aspect ratio. And it's a real challenge and so same thing right. Does he do his own shooting? Do you send up another person. Who's who does can handle camera sound hair makeup fright to the Astros get involved so I just. The details of this are blowing my mind but I think when you when we look at just all of human existence today and we think about all the trips that human beings take the vast majority of them are private right. When you fly in an airplane you know ninety nine point nine nine. Nine percent of the airplane flights are for private purposes. You are on a trip. You are carrying cargo. You are doing this. And then every now and then some would fly the airplane to a hurricane or you know to take some aerial footage of a of a drought. And that's the scientific purposes but the vast majority into. Why wouldn't it be that into the future? This is where it starts to become a how the numbers work out. And what is the ethics of this kind of question and in the frame of reference? I'm using for this is when I was a graduate student at McDonald Observatory. We'd periodically get. Vip's coming through the telescope and no matter what we're observing for science at that moment we had to kind of put it on the back burner and yeah. We'd bang the keys that we needed to keep things more or less going in a timely fashion but we had to pay attention to these guests who might be funders who might potentially help keep our science going one more year with the money. They might give the Observatory. And this okay. We are a not for profit. Enterprise we exist thanks to the generosity of our donors thanks to our competitiveness in peer reviewed science funding opportunities and thanks to our benefit actors in the state government who give us line item budgets. We know that we exist by the grace of all of these different humans and so we have to dance like the dancing monkey when they appear to keep them happy. That is of the job that we are. All aware of and astronauts are fully aware that that is also part of their job. They are all given amounts of media-training they're given massive amounts of here are effective ways to communicate complex ideas how to work a crowd how to be this stem educator. Even though they may be training pilot an engineer a doctor a myriad of other different things geophysicist. But they're all trained to be educators in the role of astronauts and when they're on the International Space Station. They know part of their is going to be on video cons with girl scouts to Judge Science Fair from outer space to do all these different feel-good tasks that remind everyone. Hey we have astronauts so the funding keeps flowing. We know that's part of the job. But that's a few moments a few hours out of your day and what we're looking at here is filming a movie in Outer Space. We don't know how long Tom Cruise and whoever else might be on the International Space Station but what we do know is while they're up there there. It's a twenty four hour gig in a large way and so now. Instead of being there a stem professionals benefiting mankind inspiring engaging educating their crew on a movie that the movie's primary goal is to have a great storyline and earn a whole lot of profit. And so where is the ethics in having our astronauts instead of engaging people in Wasilla educate them about space having them work crew on a film

"Of digital media india was a more encompassing concept but but you know i think if you back up and you look at it though podcasters are using using all the digital media tools so you know i think it depends on what's going to attract people to that track is podcasting or is it a generic and eric term like digital media which a lot of people don't really understand what that really means so so that's that's kind of but i think overall the event was fantastic. A lot of energy error you know there was podcasters air like pamela and and others were there to the tracks folks were really really interesting had great conversations <hes> and they were live streamed on facebook <hes> but that's an todd you and i spend a lot of time <hes> going to the vendor areas and and really thinking about what we can do without event to be able to better reach eighty thousand people that are there with the message of that you can have podcast and and come down and and <hes> check out a couple of panel sessions to understand how to do it and the the problem is we didn't really tap into that this year from what i felt so. I think that there are some strategies that we can do with the event to better reach the community. I don't know pamela. What's your thoughts all. I i agree completely. There is a whole lot of untapped potential there walking around and <hes> i know i was lucky enough to randomly run across a twitch streamers when i was in the art show but twitches and the place where a lot of these people should be with the kinds of content. They're creating. It's in podcasts and in talking to people i ran across a lot a lot of the fan podcasts and when you're at a fan run science fiction fantasy convention like dragon con those are the people that we need to meet and find friends who had already podcasting so great. I found that people who are doing the lucifer fan podcast in the past. I've run across the people who do the game of thrones fan podcast. It's these fans that are taking the time to organize the different strands of dragon khan the star wars room the star trek room. There was a ton of stuff this year for twenty years of farscape finding finding those people who have this amazing passion you have this trivia level knowledge of their different things and saying you know oh. There's lots of people like you that aren't driven to share their passion and think they're all alone in remembering their love of all of jim henson's creativity ativity. Let's go online together. Let's podcast. Let's get what you're so passionate about more people and just enjoy each other's company through this amazing medium and want to be respectful. Dr pamelas time were already in our thirty rob <hes> and and we made it to ninety minutes magic that we're live. We make it to ninety. That's that's normal todd would be usually we do go along and we'd do normally but <hes> it said we made it almost through glitch-free which is good but there's always something happens but <hes> dr panel where can they were working folks reach you. What's the best way to for them to to stay abreast of what you're doing. I am star strider on pretty much. Every social media platform it is spelled with a y because mistakes were made with my in my twenty s i can be found podcasting on astronomy cast the end the daily space so check it out in your favorite pod catcher or over on youtube rob all i can be found on twitter at rob greenlee and that's what to ease on the end and i do have a website rob greenlee dot com and i can be reached in email rob. Oh gee at a lipson dot com so if you want to reach out to me and have a question about something or just drop us an email. If you have any tips i saw anything that you see going on in the accounting space that needs to be talked about on the show are needs to be shared or discussed..

"Ads <hes> you know the caching episodes breaks the donna cancer shen model because what you've done is you've captured a snapshot of your file and the ability to update that file in spotify for not pass through is is not possible so so you're going to capture one ad that's is gonna be in there for the life of the show on the platform and that's not how that program is supposed to work so so i do believe that they the days of cashing doing are going to be <hes> short. I think most of the platforms are are are going to move to pass through like like google. Play is eventually. I believe gonna get shut down so that one's going to go away. Stitcher has converted over to pass through and so we're going to see i. I think that the list is winding down of those that are cashing and i think that those days we're going to go away. Well we have <hes>. We didn't come through the show glitch-free. We are not live streaming. Were still on the air. We are not live streaming at the moment and reset in a trance cut ourselves. We'll come back up but don't matter ninety five or ninety nine. Percent audience is still listening sure because you're still recording. That's right. They are the folks are were. They go so. I think the you know from that. Standpoint ain't <hes> you know you can be sure your numbers are pretty good and when we see that our p. come in pamela that says IB certification required you can check that that box and say yes. We're rata certify platform that is good to know and i really you can't tell people enough always work with a platform that has been around a while that his built these relationships outwards with all the other companies his they'll take better care of you and help you grow faster. I think it's having the time to build the tools that are appropriate for this medium medium. You know that's one of the challenges that a lot of new companies have they come in and they look all shiny and new <hes> but they haven't had the the years years of development behind them to to really refine those tools and to make them podcast friendly and i think that's the key takeaway and i agree with you pamela. It's the platforms that have spent the time to listen to podcasters and understand their needs are the best places to be. They may not be the new cool place to be but i think in the long term if you're serious about podcasting i think those platforms are are the ones you need to really <hes> stick with ram sitting here looking at the technical side of stuff so sorry about that. Look you know we we really haven't talked too much rob. You heaven given your your opinion of dragon con. <hes> what was your and we got some upcoming events to that. Were attending right well. I think dragon khan was different <hes> for for me and i think it was a different different event than last year when i went <hes> <hes> from a a podcasting track because it wasn't a podcasting track this year as opposed to what it was last year <hes> so last mr it was kind of a digital media podcasting track where this year it was just a digital media track and i think it it did create a little bit of a different dynamic and i i did talk to the the organizers about this and i think todd i included you on that that that email about things that you know we would recommend to them to to to make that event. You know reach its full potential specifically around podcasting. I i think that the the thought was that the concept.

"Coach similar thought processes to <hes> what podcasting is all about in and i think it's a perfect kind of <hes> event for you're trying to basically empower new podcasters to the to the medium and pamela. What's your thought on that. I mean you're much longer <hes> you you know kind of visitor of dragon con that i am but i mean how do you see that community fitting with the podcasting space. Wait what's been really amazing to me is watching how the podcasting track dragon khan has evolved. I it was one of the very first podcasting tracks to happen at one of these mainstream popular conventions and see how a lot of the o. g. podcasters who are there that showed up initially and they were there just for the podcasting track but now the recording there live episodes on the scifi track on and the skepticism track on the science track because there's so many podcasters not just grouped up as podcasters. We're going out and getting acknowledged as pretty much mainstream so that the podcasting track can be there to focus on well. This is how you make the podcast and to see all of this content going from ni shen cast off to this tiny room in the hilton to being embedded throughout the entire convention has been amazing and at the same time because we're now embedded all over the convention. There's this feedback loop where people are finding out about the podcast truck while they're in a sci-fi track and coming over and becoming well new listeners to a variety of new new shows that wouldn't have heard about except for having that track at the convention you go to a lot of different events probably robin. I would never even think about going to to where where are other growth areas that really maybe haven't thought about doing a podcast and you you obviously go to symposiums. I'm assuming and that type of stuff. But where are you seeing. Where do we need more content. I think we need more educational content but i'd be very careful about saying. We need more educational content because fundamentally pretty much all the shows all the padres chapter. Yeah true are an educational show. What's really got me is podcasting is being used to create community change range in so many different niche areas in the computer science realm. There's coating for good titan. Shows that get you thinking about what goes into software development other than just code and a lot of it is as you get better software. When the people writing the software actually likes each other and when you pay attention to psychiatry <hes> not psychiatry psychology of how human beings worked together so seeing these crossovers in different professional fields this this is still a new and growing field and i think what i'm seeing in computer science. There's room for that to exist in pretty much every profession where you get the leaders in the field the evangelists for this technology or that art form going online and talking about what it is they create an interviewing the other people who are out there pushing these fields forward while also creating societal change within these different disciplines plates. It's pretty awesome to watch right and it's it's a storytelling medium and that's that's really core to human..

"I think if you look out of a few years and we start to see terrific growth in the android listening learning side and we start to really fully expand the audience even on the iowa side <hes> which there's still plenty of growing doing room for that. I think it is going to be more possible for more people in this podcast medium to make <hes> make a real living on this. There's medium and to become professional podcasters. They don't all have to be rolled up into some connection with them. Big major corporation or something. I like that i just think all boats are going to rise and the other thing that that may happen and i've been thinking about this for many years the concept of local local podcasting. I think we've been held back from that as as something that was a potential because of the scale that we just had reached appropriate scale to basically unable really effectively large audiences in local markets but we might see that happen. I'm and i'm hopeful that we will see audio podcasting. Be something large in like in cities like see how you know it's been bubbling bubbling for a long time but i think as the scale of this medium grows i we're probably never gonna get past. Probably seventy five to eighty percent percent of the global population lifted listening to podcasts. I mean obviously if you look globally is probably significantly less than that but here in the US or any you know the more modern countries so but that's still we have thirty percent to go as far as on our overall growth in population which ages a basically doubling the size of the current audience right now if you go ahead and we have better potential hustle to get into a lot of the cellular limited internet access communities so as you start to work at look out into the third world into to a remote locations in the first world where there just aren't high speed pipes a farmer still can't get HBO. Go go easily right. We're they're audio files. Are that much smaller. If you have to pay by the megabyte it's one thing to pay for fifteen megabyte audio file something completely different to pay for the couple hundred megabytes short youtube video. We can be there air in remote places. The video still can't get well. I look at where i'm sleeping. There's no broadband there. Everything there is a wireless and <hes> and i'm i'm literally twelve hundred. Well not twelve miles from town where i'm streaming this from and it's twelve miles away. I can't get wired internet so you know we. We haven't finished wearing america yet. Let alone you think about in. I have some broad band there because there's a wireless provider. That has a service but it's it's not fast but if we think we're still struggling in rural america here just think about third world even worse axion some countries. It's actually better because telecom is all they're ever gonna have so they've invested more in telecom but i think that <hes> you know google definitely. I'm very very excited right about the potential there but they're doing and how they could bring this groundswell of of people that are seeking specific topical content. Maybe not a show but maybe an episode and <hes> definitely know that there's huge you know you you know i was pretty blown away. I hadn't been to a dragon con conned before and we'd we haven't talked about this but i'm thinking you've got folks there that sure some of their naidu qasr play for fun but there are some that take this to a whole 'nother level i mean they get deep into the genre the characters the enemy and they they know this stuff they probably watch episodes twenty times to figure out every new watts and then they developed side stories and i'm like office. People should be podcasters well. It's a very similar kind of mental. Positioning i mean that is a a large group of people that are all all about having interest in building community and that's what was very attractive to me about getting involved dragon con last year was i just saw so much..

Don't harp is fully. Put yourself physically at risk but also trust people an amazing things it can happen.

I i get a little nervous for those for those individuals will even discussing astronomy sometimes i've i've kind of wished i didn't have my own voice <music> out there because you stayed an opinion about almost anything in someone's gonna get mad at you and and so we have to draw others lines for ourselves and figure out am i a username am on my own name. Do i have my photo out. There and it's important that there are some people who are far enough along in their career secure enough in their own safety that they can be out author bhai name to serve as role models to say here is the road i have fledged and deer young person who has starting with such great enthusiasm username be safe behind a username and it's in having the senior role models that i think our current generation can really benefit benefit. We wrote ground in this field more than ten years ago. We've made every single mistake mistake. That's a perfect and so now now that we've made every single mistake and we've accidentally <hes> registered websites under there are home address and made the mistake of every mistake that can be made has been made already. Let's just be out there and be honest and say the things that we've done wrong and be those lessons learned for these new people coming up and new the people coming up. Protect your identity intel.

"Else's chat add with with youtube. Were being told you're best off being just three minutes long. Don't match and then of course for podcasting. The sweet spot is the length of someone's drive the length of someone's exercise routine that fifteen to thirty minute window of time and so yet again you want to optimize for something completely different and the production qualities matter in different ways for each of these different things in so we have to interview someone to be able to tell them. What is the best technology for you. Tom webster contends that the younger generation and and you know i think before i say this i've always said i don't care where people listen or watch the content long as they do and don't care if they catch it on soundcloud or i mean us on cloud on spotify or on apple podcast google podcasters to in a wherever they listened to the show or watch the show. I'm happy with that but tom webster contends that the eighteen to twenty five grouping the younger people are coming in are no longer subscribing and they're just catching it on demand dan kind of like you would when something updates in your youtube channel and <hes> is it because we as podcasters or not training our audiences to go to new mini show dot com and click subscribe sally just did that. <hes> you know is is that what were that. What we're missing is at in. I even heard someone say a couple of days ago. I'll go to apple podcast in someone from the audience booed atr because they said what about me injuried user and kind of put it right back in the presenters face face and so. I think that <hes> you know is it because we're not teaching our audience to go subscribe anymore. We'll talk. I think it's worth the diverse something number in the past sorry well. I think we're talking to each other. You are so let let pamela go. I the i was just gonna say. I think the diversification of the number of platforms where you can get a podcast it it. I used to be super easy to to say hey go. Subscribe to me at and say you're. RSS feed or say hey go subscribe to me on itunes because i tunes was one of like four podcast directories out there and it was the number one out there now. It's like you can get our podcast on itunes. Google play spotify or ask alexa all these how'd you lose that all out at the end of of your feet so added to that people are adding podcasts to their favorite content on spotify and that just fundamentally acts a little bit differently so we do need to get better at educating our audiences and also we need to recognize recognize that there's no one way that will suit everyone's needs and we have to acknowledge that because there's always going to be someone someone annoyed because i'm using an apple in rob's using a PC. I mean i think <unk> i'm starting to hear more people just mentioned on their shows that you know my shows available in in your favorite podcast listening out or platform or whatever and just keeping it really simple because we have kind of reached a point where the distribution of podcast is pretty much in all all of the current audio listening platforms so i think it is in a lot of ways fairly safe to say that you know your podcast will if if you've submitted to all the platforms and i think that gets back to kind of a much bigger responsibility that the podcast hosting platforms have and i think were were definitely taking that responsibility on is making sure that it's easy for podcasters to get their shows into all those listening platforms and i know i i know we spend a lot of time on that and i know todd you do too of making is easy as possible to get into those platforms and we've been pressuring these platforms for four years now to make it easier to to to submit your podcast over to these platforms and get it in the catalog because i believe it's been been. It's been too difficult..

"We predated my space. Facebook facebook was columbia. MIT harvard only pretty much win. Podcasts started all these technologies where people or like. You've got to be doing even search engine optimization. SEO was not a key phrase that everyone in their sister was relying on back at the point so we were all going through and printing physical cards and little tiny buttons. I i remember my very first dragon. Uncon- the new hip thing to do was to get these little half inch buttons and walk around sticking them onto people in hopes that every little button what news stuck on someone with maybe turn into at least one download and we were investing our money our hearts our souls and our blood on the stupid buttons trying to get word out and it's so much easier nowadays where we do have all of these amazing platforms out forms and i wonder though if because it's so much easier you don't have to be as hungary to do it and this is where so many people are like oh. It's just another podcast had cast and you have to stick around a while before people would be like oh. They're actually gonna stick around awhile and start becoming one of your regular losers researchers and i think that is starting to slowly resonate and people are finally starting to change the message that just creating ten episodes and then publishing those and coming online is is not what you need to do. There has to be a a much longer strategy and everything. I heard you know usually cringe when i'm setting in sessions and i hear someone say something and you know just kind of like stabbed the heart to me because i'm kind of like oh. Please don't say that you know to these new podcasters but i don't think i cringed. Once during <hes> midlantic i was the the they had a great lineup of speakers now that there was some stand ups where they do like these eight-minute deals that i talked to <hes> joe pinto about that. I hope he tweaks a little bit an ongoing year but even dragon con <hes> where there was a lot of focus on people using twitch rich these other live streaming platforms which were up on right now as well <hes>. I think that people have to understand that there's only so many hours in a day people can view and then the rest of the folks are being half time to consume <hes> there's this there's this myth out there that <hes> live streaming as the end to be all right now between i'm just counted up between the five or six different locations were streaming out. We got about forty people watching livestream so you know that is is and we've but we've got about eight thousand people that are subscribed to the show so the yeah we love the interaction the tapping here but the eight thousand people you're listening probably could care less about the color color gradient of the studio screen and behind me and and this is where we have to remember that it's it's not a one-size-fits-all technological solution different kinds of content different ways of communicating each are best suited ed for something different what works best for twitch may not will not absolutely will not work best for youtube what works best for the podcast cast format won't work best for the video and as we're putting our shows together we take different shortcuts so that were optimized for one platform and good enough for everything else and the trick is getting the new people who are coming online not to fall prey to well the popularity in the media of one thing over another currently if you were to look who's talking about what twitches the next big up and coming thing but on twitch in less. You're one of the rare partners. You're doing a really good to have forty to sixty people watching your stream at once and your content because twitch is optimized to long form. It's the a place where you go to spend four hours playing video games six hours crocheting an octopus. Whatever the reason you're there. You're you're there to do something that takes a long period of time to complete and no one's gonna watch that on youtube where they get to see you talking to somebody..

"Welcome to castor weekly facts based journey through the cosmos, where we help you understand not only what we know what how the woman, I'm preserve Cain publisher of universe today. With me as always Dr Pamela, gay, a senior scientists for the planetary Science Institute and the director of cause request Pam how you doing I'm doing. Well, how are you doing Fraser, really good? It's been a nice relaxing week. So far, actually it's been good. Some follow up stories, we you know, the bare sheet Lander crashed and but now bear she too is is is go. The falcon heavy landed. Perfectly accepted didn't the the the core booster fell over in the high seas and broken half and half returned to Poseidon. You didn't know that? No. Yeah. So it landed and then fell over in the high because 'cause the Octo grabber can't grab the core booster of a falcon heavy, and so yeah, it fell over and the top crunched off and and went to the went to Davy Jones locker and they need they need an octa grabber. Massive addition Octo grabber heavy. Yeah. Yeah. And of course, still been just feasting on black hole news. So it's it's been a, but it's a poor chil. But it's been it's been good. It was let's say it was very burnt out on. Space news last week all excited. Let's basins again this week yesterday. And today have been like story after story after story. And what I loved is today. There was a theme of when asteroids invade your solar system, and it was a pleasing theme really pleasing thing. Yeah. Inter people's had no light pollution, and they knew the night skies. Very well. In fact, they depended on them to know when to plant when to harvest today, Pamela, talks about the arc yo astronomical sites of the American southwest, which coincidentally is a place you are going to be traveling to relatively soon. It. It is true next. August I am going to be leading an Astro tore through the American southwest departing from Tucson going to places still being determined, but will include national parks, and observatories and ending it all in Las Vegas. Now, we aren't going to get to visit a lot of the archaeological sites that I'm thinking today. But the reason that I'm leading that tort is because that's the part of the country where I spent my summers growing up. It's where my grandparents are it's where I went to graduate school. Well, it's where I did a summer or a you as an undergrad. And so when I picked the topic for today, it was basically like, okay. The news is heavy. I wanna pick something will bring me joy to read. And I know I just don't I know exactly how this went down. You were like looking at sites that you were going to be going in thinking about it. And then just nerd out and went down a rabbit hole of cool. Historical archaeological sites in the American southwest. Yeah. Now that eight so actually I was playing ticket to ride with keeper of maps and paranoid. You're going. Have no idea what to talk about. I have. No, I am out of a DEA 's. And it was out of me bemoaning how I was like out of ideas, as I faced the weeks world news that I was like what if and it was like archaeology, let's talk about archaeology. Let's talk about things and before the expletive hit the fan. So. Oh, yeah. So, but I mean, the irony, of course, is that the places you're going to be talking about are not places that you're going to be going on your Astra tour. I think that's the point is likely is is that you this is pure Pamela rabbit hole. This is you. Yes, finding something and nerd ING out about it for for our benefit. It's it's true. And this is going to be part of a series. And we are going to talk next week most likely about the modern astronomy being done in the American southwest today. We start with the beginning times. And next week. We're going to talk about how we're learning about the end times.

To make a science people. I got to make us lions. So so you saying like, thanks to the planetary sciences toot for giving you a home that you get to do science on on an occasional basis. Yeah. That's amazing. And more to the point. I get to science with a whole bunch of other people instead of being like the person over here making science while everyone else is doing other things it was it's awesome. Here we go even though they might be scattered around our planet. Astronomers have a way to come together to work the issues that face their entire field of study, it's called the international astronomical union.
