"Has about one point three times mass of the earth and its Proxima Centauri at an average distance of just zero point zero five astronomical units. That's about seven and a half million kilometers. Which is in the habitable zone the region around a star where temperatures would allow liquid water essential life as we know it to pool on the surface of a terrestrial planet by the way and astronomical unit is the average distance between the earth and the sun about one hundred and fifty million kilometres or eight point three light minutes the first hints of a possible second planet opening Proxima Centauri surfaced in radio velocity observations taken in January from the extra fiscal observatory of children by astronomer. Mario Damasio but that data wasn't clear enough for any firm confirmation. It seems to suggest a second planet much further out than Proxima B. possibly around one point four eight astronomical units says D'Amato together with Flo Astronomer Rafael Grant and from the Astronomical Observatory Padova decided to search for more evidence by looking through the four years via infrared server planet or shine. Data's IT shine us. The European Southern Observatory's very large telescopes veer or speaker parametric high contrast exoplanet research instrument to hunt for exoplanets the authors attempted to separate out the faint hints of a signal from planet. All the noise in the background stars and as they did so they kept getting the same spic not enough punditry detection but also likely to be caused by simply random noise alone now if the spike is a planet it somewhere around seven point two eight point six times the mass of the Earth. So it's a super earth depending on how the date is interpreted. Also may we'll have a ring system similar to that of satin but as well as being hard to pin down the data has another problem. And it's quite a big one. See the study assumes the presence of a data this garage Proxima Centauri and the problem there is observations using Alma. The Atacama large millimeter submillimeter telescope doesn't show any evidence of any such dust disk in the system. Sir I guess that means more observations would be needed either confirm or finally rule out the planet's presence. I the way we'll keep. You informed this space time. Still to come CI OPS begins its science mission and the expedition sixty two crew returned home to a very different world from the one they left all that and much more still to come on space.

"Before Kepler. The nature of the transit technique meant that most of those EXO planets were hot. Jupiters giant balls of hydrogen and helium with short orbits making them scalding lifeless behemoths. But in April two thousand fourteen kepler found its first earth size exoplanet in its star's Habitable Zone. Kepler one eighty six F. It's about ten percent larger than Earth and orbits on the outer reaches of where the temperature could allow life. No one knows the mouse composition or density of Keppler one eighty six F but its discovery remains a revelation Keppler was searching somewhat blindly an impossibly small sliver of space and it found a potentially habitable world more quickly than anyone might have guessed in August astronomers at the European Southern Observatory announced that they had detected somewhat similar planet orbiting Proxima Centauri the single star closest to us after the sun they named it Proxima Centauri be studying. The data seger supported the discovery and agreed that it might boast a life sustaining or at least non-life-threatening surface temperature there now. Nearly three hundred confirmed exoplanets or candidates orbiting within the habitable zones of their stars extrapolating. The math NASA scientists now believe that there are tens of billions of potentially life sustaining planets in the Milky Way. Alone the odds practically guarantee that a habitable planet is somewhere out there and that someone or something else is to in some ways. The search for life is now where the search for exoplanets was twenty years ago. Common Sense suggests a presence that we can't confirm SEGER understands that we won't know they're out there until we more truly lay eyes on their home and see something that reminds us of ours. Maybe it's the color blue. Maybe it's clouds. Maybe however many generations from now it's the orange electrical grids of alien cities the black rectangles of their lightness central parks. But how could we ever begin to look that far? Everything brave has to start somewhere. Seger says the beginning of her next potential breakthrough hangs on the wall opposite the window in her office. It is a two-thirds scale model of a single pedal of something called the star shade to she has been a leading proponent of star-shaped project and outside for teaching it is one of her principal professional concerns. Imagine that far off aliens with our present technology. We're trying to find us at best. They would see Jupiter we would be lost in the sun's Glare. The same is true for our trying to see them. The star shade is a way to block the light from our theoretical twins son. An idea floated in nineteen sixty two by Lyman Spitzer who also laid the groundwork for space. Telescopes like Hubble the star shade is a huge shield about one hundred feet across for practical reasons that have to do with the bending of light but also lend it a certain cosmic beauty. The star shade is shaped exactly like a sunflower by seekers hopeful. Reckoning day the star shade will be rocketed into space and unfurled working in tandem with a new space telescope. Like the W I scheduled to launch in the mid two thousand twenty s when the telescope is aimed at a particular planetary system lasers will help align the star Shade floating more than eighteen thousand miles away between the telescope and the distant star closing the curtain on it with the big light extinguished the little lights including potential earth like planet and everything it might represent will become clear..

The Event Horizon Telescope Is Trying to Take the First-Ever Photo of a Black Hole
"May be about to see the first ever photo of a black hole quoting seen it. Astronomers working across a worldwide network of cosmic observatories are set to make a quote groundbreaking announcement on April tenth, according to the European southern observatory considering that the event horizon telescope is on a mission to capture the very first image of a black hole. This could be one of the biggest science discoveries of the year. Humans for the first time may be able to see the black hole at the center of the Milky Way. Galaxy or the one over at our close cosmic neighbor, the elliptical galaxy Messier eighty seven and quote, of course, black holes are by definition invisible. But there is that thing called the event horizon where material around the very edge of a black holes immense gravity starts speeding up and spinning around it. And that this begins to admit high energy radiation, which we can see tell. Scopes around the world have been recording radio signals emitted by event horizons for many years the last data collection ended in April of two thousand seventeen and astronomers have been stitching together the data since that time seen that says there is no certainty that will see a black hole for the first time next week. But quote, given that the media visory suggests a groundbreaking result that will be simultaneously streamed in six different locations and four different languages around the world. There's a reason to be excited. The official announcement will begin at six AM Pacific time on April tenth and quote.

Facebook Facebook, boss, Mark Zuckerberg has admitted the site should be regulated the social networks founder and chief executive said there is a need for governments and watchdogs to have a more active role. Let's check in with our expert on the internet, Lauren Weinstein, Lauren. What does he mean by all of that is a real piece of work? Say that's for sure here. I mean Facebook had a history of bad policies, not implementing those policies as they said, they would and that actually in some cases, even lying about them. They've gone from disaster to disaster to that. And now, and now we've reached a point where suddenly he says, hey government come in. And save us from ourselves. We can't do this ourselves anymore. I I'm concerned. That's balderdash dangerous. Balderdash? Sure is because no matter how much we may be concerned about the way these firms are handling content themselves far as I'm concerned. The last thing we want to do is have in many cases, pandering politicians trying to micromanage for their own purposes, these technologies that they don't really understand. And can you imagine if they don't like a website that the political politicians would shut it down? Well, they probably wouldn't be as as as as that. But by writing these regulations and very clever ways, they could really have their hands on the controls. And as we go from one party to the other in control of government over the years. It's just gonna keep it's going to be like whiplash back and forth and back and forth. The end result of government getting involved in that at that level is always leading toward what we have in China now. Yes, right. Massive censorship monitoring regime. It's it's so fast. It's almost impossible for anyone out there to to grasp its scope and scale Russia is now imposing more and more draconian limits on the internet, and they're even experimenting with cutting themselves off from the rest of the net and the EU the European Union just past articles eleven at articles thirteen which would give governments direct control over all manner of content. So I mean, if that's the kind of world we wanna live. With the internet where the politicians that so often managed to screw up. Everything else would be screwing that up to that. I guess what Mark is suggesting is is is a viable path. I I am concerned. He's just trying to save himself and all this. But even if we take the most charitable view that we possibly could it's one of those road to hell is paved with good intentions situations. And frankly, that's not a path. I wanna go down unacceptable. Thanks, lauren. Israel's lunar Lander has almost made it to the moon the five foot tall craft fired its engines for a little over a minute early.

"It turns out the military had sensually yuks waving to be launched. And because the story everyday I'm in right? This Hubble class telescope that the air force used or the National Reconnaissance office would've used for earth observation, but it wasn't good enough anymore. So they were just like you said, hey, NASA d'you want this maybe other enters gonna throw it out. Because it's garbage for the thing is they had to and we could only afford one. Yeah. I'll take the other one. Yeah. Yeah. So we're in the process of hopefully, Suming the government opens back up again of building w I and one of its accompanying. I don't know if the right word is instrument facilities. The thing that is hopefully going to get built to fly alongside it is a massive sunflower shaped, corona graph that is essentially a solid disc surrounded by pedals. These things come in a variety of different designs. They all look like something that would be out of JAMES BOND movie used kill somebody throwing stars whatever analogy feel like it's that combination of different edges that works. Interf- works to build interference patterns in just the right way to block out the star. And allow you to potentially see whatever planets may be. Around the star. And these I know this this star-shaped is gonna fly like ten thousand kilometers away from the telescope and a perfectly positioned self to have the center part block the star. And then you'll have the pedals sort of gathering up some of that additional light. That's it's pouring out and any planets in theory are going to be are going to be seen around it. But but even if you've like research into corona graphs, much another way, that's really interesting the way with some of the earth based ones and some of the space-based ones will work. The Colonel Graff is built into the spacecraft into the telescope and uses destructive interference of the light. So that it takes the light breaks. It up makes the light fight itself. So that you actually, you know, you get the block of you know, you still have a disc that blocks the sun. But then you also have using destructive interference of the light to clean up. All of it. And these work these will work best in space, but they still work, okay? In the atmosphere, and there's a tremendous instrument. That's tach onto the European southern observatory they have the tell us. Oh, heck both yet these instruments. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. These graphs have spread. So is the one that's on the veal t I think. Yeah. And so you were saying that that these work better in in infrared than visible, and the issue that makes infrared better than visible light is the wavelengths are just a little bit longer and that difference in size in the wavelength of the light is in a lot of ways easier to deal with now, that's not the only thing. The other thing is stars give off less light in the infrared. It's below the peak and their relationship. Tween color and how much light output they have. And it's in the maximum light for a planet. So planets are warm objects that are not hot they're not stars. So we're starting to get in the infrared towards the peak temperature that or the peak wavelength corresponding to temperature that a planet gives off it's light. And we're getting below the peak wavelength for a star. So this also helps where just looking in different color, and we're getting a myriad of bonus features. And sometimes that's all it takes is just those extra bonus features the universe gives you for free. If you shift out of with the eyeball can see in one of the things also that the Espresso instrument is able to do on the on the very large telescope is able to detect the polarization of the of the light. And so you get the light coming off the stars can be bouncing off of the planet's atmosphere. Fear and possibly oceans and things in polarized light and changes it into a different, you know, into a different alignment, and then the instrument can detect throw away everything that is not that exact kind of polarized light. So that you can only see the movement of that planet, which is essentially as tiny little polarization spot moving around, and I know earlier the summer again, the European southern observatory detected a newly forming planet for the first time using this this technique..

"We'll give us more information about those X oh planets. Visiting one however is going to take a lot longer the closest Exo planet orbiting in the habitable zone of its star is proxima centauri b that's orbiting the red dwarf star, proxima centauri and just to be clear Kepler did not discover proxima b that planet was discovered by the European southern observatory using the radial velocity method. You know, the good old wildly method. That star however is the closest star to our sun. But closest is a relative term. It's. Still four point two light years away. Now that means it takes more than four years for light from that star to reach us the space craft we have designed so far in the history of space travel in in all of human history. They travel significantly slower than the speed of light. And obviously, we can't get matter up to the speed of light because matter has mass so getting to this destination would take a really long time. However, one company called breakthrough initiatives has proposed a plan that would do it sort of they plan to launch small unmanned spacecraft that they call star chips these tiny spacecraft would use light sails for propulsion so light sales or solar. Sails us pressure from photons photons don't have a mass, but they do have a relativistic mass, which means they have momentum which means when they hit against something they transfer momentum to it. So you can actually acceler. Wait a spacecraft by having photons bounce off a solar sail? It does take a while to get up to a pretty fast speed, but you're under constant acceleration. So while the acceleration isn't so dramatic. You're not going like zero two point two five the speed of light in in five seconds. It takes a long time to get up to speed. But according to the company the starcraft that they have designed will eventually reach a top speed of about twenty percent that of the speed of light. So they would get the proxima B in around twenty years or so then you have to tack on another four years for the information. They were sending back to get to us. So twenty four twenty five years from the time that those are launched and they start heading toward proxima b before we would find anything out about it. But still pretty exciting and the search for extra plans. Continues Kepler is done, but it has served us. Well, it has given us a lot more information and told us that planets are way more plentiful than we might have hoped. Whether or not planets in the habitable zone are more plentiful that still remains to be seen. We're gonna have to really do a careful study with using multiple lines of inquiry to make that determination. But it's really exciting stuff. I hope you guys enjoyed this episode..

"Without antibiotics world health organization came out with a landmark study this year indicating this is of grave concern in there have to be some incentives put in place to find new antibiotics financial incentive it's difficult because of the way and about extra prescribed there's not a lot of money in it for the big pharma companies and scientists frankly are running out of the low hanging fruit the microbes that are there to make it possible to make antibiotics but this is this is a big concern which we need to be watching and one of the biggest science events of the year certainly was the eclipse we loved watching your coverage of that wonderful event that could have been there fake news and then there was other other news of the heavens tell us about that well the eclipse was i ate out it was great i cover insides for a long time i once on an annual that are clips which allows a little ring of the sun to still exist but this is a full eclipse this i happen to be in the path of totality i was prepared to be blase and i've got to tell you william next time they come around make sure you find yourself to one of these spots it's it's it's really a great experience in the sense that it's it gives us under standing of how much we know about are the space and astronomy and yet how insignificant we are in some ways there's a certain dichotomy there and maybe were not so alone in february the european southern observatory announced it had found a very earth like looking system the socalled trappist system has seven planets around it has a lot of indications that they've might be earth like let's listen to one of the scientists thomas zurbuchen you can see in this administration is that three of these planets marked in green are in the habitable song written likud water can pool on the surface in fact with the right atmospheric conditions that could be water on any off these planets and as you know william on this planet will you find liquid water you'll always find lives so that is a tantalizing clue scientists have in figure that went out yet now for the big scientific purely scientific event of the.

"He would be the size of north america in the milky way's big but our neighbor andromeda galaxy it's about twice as big as a monkey way scale is important here i suppose but at the center of our galaxy there's a black hole so the milky way is like a disk of stars and yes and us and stuff and where sort of out toward an edge and at the centre there is a bold of stars and guess nosed and then in the middle of that there is a black hole its four million times as massive as the sun i didn't know that do we have a name for it here we have a name for recall it said geyter is a star okay liam it's because it's a kind of i think it was like playing a radio source and because it was pulling in some manner and so it was lighting up in the radio a little bit and so ours is not pulling in mary much better at all very occasionally at lead a little bob of gas in the strong ras get super excited and but like there's very little happening with it but it does it is really big and it's got a bunch of stars orbiting really closely around it and so you can actually go online and see like data foley tracing out the paths of some of these stars and you can see them like whip around as they go really close the black hole in their orbits so some of them have these orbits that they're really far away in the coming really close nikko film like that right around the black hole and so you can veer out exactly like how big it is and where it is by watching these stars go round early quickly so i did a little looking and a few gluco european southern observatory and ass as an sam.

"Is it still interesting probably yes it's rare in the segment that i'll get to talk about something that you may have already seen in the actual news but how could i resist talking about all these new akzo planets nasa just announced here are the basics a joint team of astronomers from nasa and the european southern observatory using masses spitzer space telescope have found the first known system with seven earth size terrestrial exa planets orbiting a single star named trappist one three of these planets are in what we call the habitable or goldilocks zone let's unpack what this means a bit extra players are any planet found outside our solar system terrestrial means they're made of rock not gas stars are named in part based on what telescope first observed them this star was first observed in 1999 in the constellation aquarius but in 2015 a different telescope observed three planets around the star that telescope was called the transiting planets and planets has symbols small telescope acronym trappist located at the last sia observatory in chile the telescope is operated by a belgian team so the acronym is also a reference to that nations famous beer made by trappist monks since this was the first star that telescope had found with plants around it they appended the number one the planets are named alphabetically starting with b so the first three planets were b c and d starting closest to the star and working their way out word the new planets discovered by spitzer are dozen needed eat age maintaining that same inward outward order.

"But at the same time the european southern observatory is sinking a great deal of resources and building a new extremely large telescope there is a consortium that is working to build a thirty meter telescope was originally scheduled to be on hawaii it looks like it's probably going to get moved up possibly to the canary islands an and so we have this case where when i first started as a professional there was the soviet six meter telescope there were a handful of fourmeter telescopes adaptive optics were brand new by the time i finish graduate school we are starting to build eightmeter telescopes and then there was the special in weird hobby aberly telescope that only use as part of the mirror but it's mirror was the biggest in the world for a little while and now we're starting to look at lake tens of meter yes and this starts allowing us to get the kind of lightgathering power that allows us to do spectroscopy which doesn't require the same high resolution is imaging but starts to allow us to do spectroscopy unom masing lee faint objects it it also because we are using it up of optics it does start to give us the ability to do what hubble's doing but looking at things that are significantly fainter now we actually did an episode of astronomy cast about like fairly early on action the we called the rise of the super telescopes and we talked about a lot of these missions will you i resurrected that concept over on university and evan gough one of our writers ran through the news here is so so we put in the giant magellan telescope we overwhelmingly large telescope the thirty meter telescope the european extremely large telescope the large synoptic survey telescope the james webb the wife field infrared survey telescope and the we just added the louvre war telescope.
