Sorry i can kind of grasping at straws of it here. But it's a really interesting question and that is a part clever boroughs. Yes i understand that. And that is called. The lawrence fitzgerald contraction is that is yes so lorentz fitzgerald contraction is. What just described if you think of something like a state moving along like a spear through space at the near the velocity of light than you see this contraction once again. I keep mentioning this new book. Mind but i put a cartoon in showing an express train travelling at nearly the speed of light very old express train with smokey engine and a driver looks very slightly startled. But it's very short cartoon quiz. Because you've got gotta guess what. Speed is a shining so that's called lawrence fitzgerald contraction and called that because it was deduced actually before einstein got to the issue. It it if you if you take the assumption that the speed of light is always constant which we discussed last week. Then was germano belgian cardmember and fitzgerald. Who was irish these two physicists said well let's things must appear to contract but it was einstein who kind of sorted out really dotted the is and cross the ts with this theory special relativity but yet it's a great name isn't it. It's gerald contruction indeed and thank you very much bill for the question. Let's move onto our next question. This comes from chris. Hey fred andrew. This is chris camera.

"My name is andrew dantley your host and with me as always is astronomer lodge professor fred. What's an hullo fred andrew. Very good to be here. I'm always glad to see your smiling face when we kick off with a space nuts recording. Thank you sir. And congratulations episode. Two hundred and fifty. Who would've thought it when we started. I did not know if this venture would turn into anything. And i'm just so stunned and humbled by the global support that we get. It's it's been real joy to to connect with so. Many people not only via podcasts but via social media and to be able to swap messages and jokes and just learn a little bit about the people who who love astronomy so much and it's a thrill and of course we're not stopping. Now we've come to the end but we haven't keep on keeping on two thousand the when we get to one thousand five hundred i think by then i'll probably be digging us up to see if we want to speak for you so as i've just spent a lot of money on my teeth my knee i wanna get good value for eight just built a putting green and condo at least thirty more years wasting money. If gordon look full on. Today we will be answering audience questions. That was the original plan. And we've got questions. From cassandra ryan graham petty and eliza ralph andrew and mark about all sorts of subjects. But we had one interesting combo question from two different people who don't know each other but they both sort of asking the same thing so we're going to do that as a single double question ask me how. But we're going to play them both at once so the talking over each other. Actually i can do that. But anyway we'll do that but I read some very very sad news. And that is The death of apollo eleven astronaut michael collins. I heard the news this morning. The passed away at the age of ninety after battle with cancer and he was part of the reason. I got so interested in space and astronomy and space travel. I was inspired to go to nasa. Soon as i saw a apollo eleven. I always thought. I'm going to go there and see this place and learn more about it and i think my my favorite moment was going to the and five display at nassar in in florida and saying that set and five rocket hanging from the ceiling in its various stages it was mind blowing and michael collins was a part of the reason that that happened because and probably part of the reason. This podcast is happening because he he was just one of those people that etched into my mind. From a very young age. I saw the apollo mission at the ages seven. I think you're probably forty seven fifty seven qatar. And he he. He was a follower of the space. And that's podcast. I don't know if your many people know that. I didn't make a big deal of it. But he liked at some of our episodes over the last couple of years seriously. That was yes yes. Today's did i was stunned as that he'd paid any attention at all. So you know what a great block. Yeah what a great block. And it's sad but he lived a long and happy life. And if i could just read a statement from his family they say we regret to share that. Our beloved father and grandfather passed away today after a valiant battle with cancer..

"Got too close to the milky way so basically everything riches asked is possible to sounds great. Sounds like all the answers are yes including question tune which is what happens to dwarf galaxies merge. Their black holes probably merged to okay. What about the quiz our theory that he came up so quasars slightly different category and a kind of extinct now because their product of the early universe where you had the supermassive black holes within galaxies really actively consuming the material around them and they're so active that they're very powerful emitters of radio waves and visible light in fact and so the the quieter regime has gone but maybe i mean scientists wonder if all galaxies go through a craze phase early in their lives. That may not extend to dwarf galaxies. Because you need a pretty big supermassive black hole to really kick off this process and get the kind of activity that you get with a quasar. They richard so the answers to your questions. I yes yes perhaps probably not. And maybe but not necessarily not really. Thanks for your question. Richard and things are going well in sunny brisbane. I'm actually going up to queensland lighter this year we got to go to a wedding so hopefully all will be. Well come august and all remember to take my my high favor medication. Last time we went up there for a wedding. We went in august. And i thought that's only august. She'll be right still win. No guard got me good to off but yeah thanks again richard. Now move onto a question or two from tom in toronto canada. Hello fred andrew. I'm a subscriber and admire if your podcast since about episode seventy coincidentally. I have two questions for professor watson. It's a love this. Your wikipedia page mentions few musical compositions your a pot of had. Is the cosmos inspire your music and does music inspire any thoughts or ideas you might have in your astronomical research and then a really serious question could black holes be safely used in gravity. Assist greetings from snowy. Toronto was snowy new south. Wales victoria and tasmania this week though as we in the northern southern hemisphere go through seasonal changes were all sort of experiencing the same thing at the moment but yes. You'll music fred. He's interested in your music well where to start. So i think say android grew up in a musical family and dad was. My dad was a swing but he played in a swing band. Indeed my brother still does. They were both drummers. My brother's still is hold that against them. He doesn't beyond he gets older job jokes. He doesn't get many gigs. These days for obvious reasons but so there was always music. But it wasn't just swing museum. I mean this is back in the forties. When i was a little one classical music was there as well. And that's what really got me hooked. I like pop music but classical music is something that has been a major part of my life throughout my whole life and to be honest andrew. I'm really glad about that. Because he often provide you with a way of getting away from the from the world. It's a really solid thing to be able to listen to a piece of music that you know is going to be your happy place. Whether it's beethoven sibelius bribes whoever is all great stuff so steppenwolf steppenwolf. Yeah i can do that as well. Okay yeah because i've got fairly broad musical tastes and in the sixties heavily into beatles stones..

I actually saw the other day that were trying to map out a journey for it and they come up with two paths life but the other one was more likely to give the results they were looking for now trying to choose which way to go option to better data probably much more dangerous so i don't know way went. They have. they started moving. I don't know the answer to that. But i do know yourself started moving cooks. They've put six point five meters on. Its odometer worked now half the price and so what they did. Was they rolled forwards. Full beta four maters then one hundred and fifty degree turn on this pictures that show you the fact that within the wheels the turn because with a six wheeled rover each independently controlled you. Can you can just turn on the spot. So they turned hundred and fifty degrees and then drove backwards to two and a half meters. So it's now got six and a half meters on the clock exactly as you said it will be worth the price. But if they drove backwards rewind the odometer. I suspect that doesn't work. In positive cases probably a lot of its travel will be back backward. In fact i remember. I think it was opportunity outta damage wheel and for a long long time many years it could only go backwards to drag the wheel. That were stuck one other bit of news is that's my interest you know.

"Be. Oh good once again. Thank you for joining us. This is the space nuts podcast. I'm your host Andrew. Dunkley forgotten to tell you that for the last one hundred episodes. But that's who I am an- joining me as always is professor Fred. What's an astronomer lodge? Hello Fred Andrew. You see you've got to keep telling people what your name is because they otherwise they getting wrong. I do it on the Radio. Just about every segment because it's the only way. I can remember my name at this particular stage in my life but I haven't been told to shut up because we know who you are although when I worked with the Stranded Broadcasting Corporation that actually did happen. I got an email one day saying Andrew. Can you stop telling us who you out? We know so I did stop for a couple of days and then I forgot who I was and thought. Oh better get back to you kind of develop. When you're on in radio you to develop Little crutches little habits and that's probably one of mine just sort of default to my name is a is a way of sort of changing subjects. others have different ways of doing things. Our work with a fellow at the moment is bannon radio even longer. I'll have which makes it very long time. And he has a crutch that he uses when he wants to finish off explaining something. You always ends the sentence with and all that sort of thing and I didn't realize how much he said it until somebody pointed it at one dia. Now that's all I he yes anyway. It's like saying to someone next time you listen to the radio. I listen for the breaths between sentences and then that's all I can he. It's it's yeah people don't notice it until you say something and then I just can't unnoticed it. Anyway that's beside the point Let us talk about what's happening on today's program. And there's been this amazing image released of Jupiter. It's an infrared image and it's It is spectacular. Not only that. It was a photograph By a friend of yours a former colleague and it is a composite photo. It's not a point and shoot. Oh good top of thing this. This actually took a bit of work in. It's been going on for about a Ye. We're also going to talk about catching into Stella Asteroids like the Space Dookie oh I got decided again Yeah the Space Doogie Euro to back sort of skirted past earth and the sun and we found out after the fact that it was an actually from ask solar system or even our galaxy as it turns out. I think was from another star system within a galaxy of Carmen Freidel correct me But now they talk about a very clever way of capturing those things. I don't know if they've been catching them and bringing them back to Earth or just you know finding them and we've got a couple of intriguing questions to tackle this week. One is related to asteroids And a new theory on the tune. Gupta episode which saw vast areas of Siberia obliterated by what was thought to be an asteroid impact but Now there's a new theory thinking that it was a asteroid grazed atmosphere. So someone's sort of come up with a question about we'll have closest to close. Obviously if that's what happened to goose that was too close and we have Petty from Sydney. Who's a roof tyler? Who wants to know if he can guide them is and you know put tiles on the roofs of dwellings. Mass to protect astronauts. It's actually an interesting question to ask so. We'll let tackle all of that today. Minnesota coming out of left field in many respects as always afraid. Let's talk about this fabulous A photograph of of Jupiter. It's sound looking at it right. Now is amazing. It's stunning isn't it? What's really spectacular about? This picture is that it was taken from ground based Telescopes Gemini North Telescope. Which is in on the on Medicare the mountain in the Big Island of Hawaii? You mentioned a friend of mine municipal. He didn't take this image but he pioneered the technique that has been take. He's now a Nari tie actually His is Craig Makhaya Nissan. He's a was for many as a senior astronomer institute of strong in Cambridge so he many years ago addressed the problem of how we eliminate the distorting effect of the atmosphere. This is with a big ground based telescope the limit as to how much detail you can see. An image is all is always. The atmosphere is the In the atmosphere. And that's why big telescope to build on high mountaintops because they are better list today with that less to deal within. The turbulence is usually lower especially the near the western seaboard of a continent is a complex set of geographical circumstances that lead to this stability of the atmosphere which is what it's kind of the holy grail of visible light optical astronomy. So great idea was a well. Let me just say that there are the stuff standard way of dealing with this. Is something cold up to where you essentially you look at the light. That's coming down to you telescope through the atmosphere and you sense distortion from the from the atmosphere by looking the way a particular star changes its Technically it's the white from this changing but you can think of it as the twinkling of the Star and you can sort of measure that you can sense that then a little bit light you do with noise cancelling headphones you essentially invert that That signal of the turbulence and basically subtract it from what you're getting and it cancels out the turbulence. That's the theory. It's a lot more complicated than that. But that is expensive The technology has taken twenty years to get to the kind of state it is now which is actually really pretty good and it's one reason why we're now thinking about building a. Lt's extremely large telescopes on the ground. Because they will use this adaptive optics technology but Craig MCI. It's probably twenty thirty years ago now. Figured that. If you've got brought in objects you can do something a little bit different. A specialty was what we call C. The imaging that's the the solid state images. Now I know your phones and cameras and things like that That as a allows you to if you've got a bright object to take many many images repeatedly of the same thing and that effectively gives you a movie but what. The movie's doing is recording as well as the object. You're looking at recording. The turbulence in the atmosphere and there will be moments when that turbulence settles down. And you've suddenly got maybe a tenth of a second or thousands of a second of perfect stability and so what we're lucky imaging technique does is. Y- you gather thousands of images. Then you go through them a just pick out the ones where the atmosphere was perfectly stable and then you add those together a and you get something like what we're seeing with this image of Jupiter. Something that's got the most incredible detail Now there is a lot more it than that is there is. I should remind Shouldn't be multiple than that. But the the The technology is not just you know it's not just somebody looking through it by this. They're very sophisticated algorithms. Let you select the best images an optum in a particular way. In fact this image of Jupiter they had to the algorithms to be clever enough to allow for the rotation of Jupiter Jupiter rotates on these axes wants in about ten hours. I think roughly and that means that the the features that you saying changing position on the disc of Jupiter. So it's going to take care of that so that's how this fabulously detailed image was made in fact in southern in Jupiter's southern hemisphere the detail that you is is almost comparable with what we saying from Juno spacecraft which is around you because it right next door to wow that that's a that's a big coal well look at it. Just look at the image. You probably go into view. I have right now. Yeah see those eddies wills the storms. Yes it's not it's not a it's certainly not the same as Juno but it's it's revealing things that we didn't say before in ground-based images the other thing we should say about the H. Under the I think you've mentioned already that it was second in infrared region of the spectrum. The Red Red caught the spectrum where we are essentially sensing heat so the reason why the image looks really peculiar when you compare it with visible light picture of Jupiter invisible light cloud belts of Jupiter Bryce and the features that you say most. Obviously but an infrared. The cloud belts are actually dark because they're silhouetted against the heat that's coming out from the planet's Interior. So what you saying in the in the bright regions of the image an is easy to find. Show you our listeners will find it very easily but I'll say it when they download the podcast. Mike could have feature image for this leagues episode. Yeah okay so we can talk about it. with with impunity. We don't have to worry that people are gonNA say yeah. It's the cloud belts dock an inbetween them a bright region. So you're looking down to the lands of Jupiter's atmosphere that woolmer than the cloud belts and that's why we see the effect of the cloud belts being silhouetted against this. This heat radiation. That's coming from from Patriot. Self a model image really a very very spectacular Craig's looking at it and thinking. Yeah I started a lot time ago. Yeah it's not sort of the pioneer I guess was yeah. That's what that's what Captain Cook told you when you when you came to Australia. Isn't it sh- with an infrared image? I'm just interested now and it's a silly question. But what color is the red spot in an infrared? Image it's That's a really good question. I don't know the answer to that. I'm not sure whether the the red spot might be in this image actually But silhouetted unsuspecting. Its black colour. Yes that's right The red spot does we know from Juno that the suit of circulation is a big Syke. Limb that extends a long way down into into Jupiter's atmosphere so you might expect that you're seeing a bit of a hole into the low alleged Jupiter atmosphere that might make the right spot bright but of course the red spot necessarily be on this side of Jupiter facing a disadvantage. But yet you've got there. I'll try and find out a really good question I didn't think about but anyway thank you. I'll take that. This is another thing that we might just mention in that set. The infrared radiation is detected from objects in space. It's not just one color has a spectrum light visible light does so you can see you know. The sort of Bach owed features in the spectrum. Not As many as you say. Visible Light But you could also divide the infrared spectrum into caliban which we do. We Call Them J. K. At least in the near infrared which is in alphabetical order. The Jay is not. It's just wavelengths of shows a bit longer than Red Light I is much longer in case where the heat really the cave. Bundy's where the heat really south showing through so suspect this images either. In the way Bundoran you know Perhaps competitive some of those bands. So now that we've sort of perfected this technology in we're able to gather images of your knee Ni- Biz lock this. Is this kind of Maine. That it's probably GonNa be easier in somewhat cheaper than sending probes to other worlds or are. We still have to do that for practical purposes. The there's no question but that you learn more about these distant objects by having something right next to it you can do so much more This is I'm like this The valuable because they actually back up. What the spacecraft to telling us so you know the the you can bet they'll be scientists comparing this image with the images that will take him on June at the same time showing the the clouds in the in the saying you know the same a instant of time so all of this comes together to increase knowledge. It'll be reset Getting the most amazing information of this but you also need the space craft this no question of that and I suppose that also backs up the The basis of scientific discovery You need more than one. Confirmation determined something That's that's the element that the central element of scientists that you need to do. Repeated experiment need to get information from different sources. Negga all right along hard look at that beautiful Majo- of Jupiter era which is On our website and probably on whatever imager looking at via whatever platform you download our podcast from which is Available everywhere these days.

Thank you for joining us on episode one hundred and ninety seven of the space nuts. Podcast where we talk astronomy and stuff. That's what that's the logo. That's that's on logos astronomy and stuff. My brother thought of that caption. I think it basically sizes up good and proper and joining me as always is professor Fred. What's an astronomer at large? Hello Fred Andrew. I'm never quite sure.

And things like this. And you know our ongoing series of cosmic cosmic relief webinars all can be done from. Yes it's amazing What we what we can do from home and have productive we can still bay and I'm so thankful for the technology that's available at enables us to do this because You know twenty years ago we would really struggled even ten years ago. I think we'd have hobby problem. Absolute colleague of mine sent me a little article That she spotted in an historical document Few this was published on the seventh of November nineteen eighteen. A public notice in a newspaper says notices he by given that in order to prevent the spread of Spanish influenza all schools public and private churches. It has movie picture holes pool rooms and other places of amusement and lodge meetings are to be closed until further notice. Roseanne familiar. Yeah he was. That was that a remarkable almost exactly a century ago in newspaper. I believe so. Yeah Day Southland. The May so I'm just trying to find that extraordinary Yeah that that was published by local Bowling Club so I'm not sure the the city of Colona the in Colona so it may well have been somewhere else. He's not a strategy but that would have been happening all over the world just now. It's fascinating and terrifying all at the same time now frayed. Let's try and put a bit of comic relief into people's lives and talk astronomy exactly favorite things. Hobart last week we talked about collaboration between Airbus and the European stays space agency. Will today. We're going to talk about another collaboration involving both of those groups but also involving Jack said the Japanese Space Agency and all this is all about a mission to mercury. Something interesting is about to happen. Probably just as you're listening to this podcast and the real slow wideawake. We're also going to look at the first double helium. Coal White Dwarf gravitational wave source that's been detected by astronomers which sounds utterly confusing but very exciting all at the same time we guide to tackle a couple of questions one from pat about the appearance of Ole satellites in asker. We have talked about them before. But they're worth discussing again for all the wrong reasons really and another question this one from Peta who sort of reflecting on ad discussion about the Roche limit and has an interesting about the moon getting slightly within that limit and not going all the way crashing into earth. What would what would be the effect then? That could be interesting. So we'll have a chat about all of those things on this edition of space nuts but first fred. Let's talk about this. A collaboration Airbus Acer and JAKSA sending a probe to mercury. Now we have talked about this before. But we're reaching a critical point in this mission which is about to happen probably as we speak. Indeed it's actually from now a couple of days away tentative April twenty twenty this space craft which is called the Becky Colombo accountable. Why but I'll find out in a minute is is to exploit mercury. In fact it consists to actually which is always a double barrelled name. One is an orbiter sort of sense to observe mercury and sense the gravitational field that is the Mercury Planeta orbiter and the other one is the Mercury Mike. Nita's ferrick orbiter one is NPR and the other MNO account for Colombo. It's spacecraft will will eventually wind up in orbit around Mercury but not in the near future to say. Let me just backtrack for one minute. Because peppy Colombo of course did no. They spotted forgotten. Sepe Betty Colombo. Who was a scientist at the University of Padua Italy? And he was the man who proposed the interplanetary gravity assist mover that maneuver the way we get this gravitational kick because is really important to the story of Beppu Colombo and in particular. It's important to what we're celebrating today. I should say that Colombo himself from nine hundred twenty so he would have been one hundred years old this year but he actually sadly died in one thousand nine hundred eighty four quite a quite a young man at the time modern standards. So why are we talking about it? Because on the tenth of April Becky Colombo was actually launched. I think eighteen months ago will pass the earth at a distance of about thirteen thousand kilometers. Which is a whisker laudner collision close? It's mighty close. And that is all intentional not accidental. It is the first of a number of these gravity assist maneuvers in other words the first of a number of gravitational kicks that it will receive from the planet and as I said it's the first okay. It's doing nine altogether under a first of all the earth and then there are two with the planet Venus Yeah then six with mercury eventually going into orbit around the planet Mercury so hang on a SEC. It's going to go to mercury six times before actually stops and his. I actually are here. We are sorry. Didn't recognize you so it's all about losing energy as as the spacecraft craft you know sending spacecraft to the sun actually takes if you're going to do it all with rockets. It's a lot of energy because you've basically got to get rid of the orbital energy of the earth the fact that this Going around the sun at thirty kilometers per second after lose that to get into the solar system although paradoxically you're going to a planet orbits the Sun much faster because you get near the sun in order to stay in orbit. You've gotta go faster. She losing energy but it actively gaining speed to capture with mercury. But as I said it's an amazing story. The in total that journey is eight and a half billion kilometers which which would take the spacecraft way beyond the orbit of Erica out there the edge of the solar system so it really extraordinary and it will eighteen orbits around the sun before he actually goes into its operational orbit around the planet mercury which is shattered for the fifth of December twenty twenty-five so still quite a way away so a journey like that is not just our mercury is nearby spacecraft down there. That's what you'd think. Though I mean in terms of proximity it's much closer planet to us than the gas giants. And you'd think I will that. That's an easy trip. We can just whip over there in a few months but no no no just because I mean you could do it. Andrew but you'd need an enormous rocket to to to get the two to basically to drop it into the inner solar system and loss of energy that I that I spoke about What's IT GONNA do when it gets there? It will said the spacecraft is actually two spacecraft. Really not just one and the The the two components the planetary magnetism magnetism fake orbiter essentially give us probably those comprehensive survey if you like of mercury the characterization of Mercury's magnetic field something really important because mercury actually houses surprisingly large magnetic field. Everybody thought it would be basically dead. But it's not that was discovered by thing the Messenger spacecraft the magnetosphere of of Mercury. Because it's got a my fatal. It has a fair bit like the Earth does with you know which which defies the Sun's magnetic field and also. They're they're basically the investigators will use the the obiter the cameras on the OBITER But also its gravitational the gravitational force that it feels to to look it the interior structure and the structure on the surface. It's going to be. I think quite a spectacular mission and I think five years down the track. A little still be going strong. I think you have some interesting conversations about wrong show. We will and another good thing about this. Particular mission is. We'll get the data reasonably quickly of other missions. You do you. Don't say team month. Way as the as the old dial up connection takes so long to bring the data about which is what's new horizons of course and we've used gravity assist before to to help slingshot spacecraft to various destinations in a great example of that would have been the voyager missions because they they needed to do that to enable those craft to reach such vast distances. As far as I'm away. No that's quite right in fact pretty well. All the missions that other than wants to the planet. Mars have used this technique not sure about Galileo. I think that went straight to Jupiter but new horizons slingshotted by Jupiter. Juno actually had to slingshot from the earth. The one that's in orbit around Jupiter the moment maybe Galileo did the same thing And then Cassini had I think three or four gravitational slingshots before it before he got to before it goes to the planet Saturn. Mike I say this slingshot happens this week but it will only be the first of many such slingshots slingshot around three planets ultimately. Isn't it indeed? That's right yes so curious that the target planet is one of them. You know it makes it a bit. Strange country to share and Mars is Mars. I should say mercury is a is fascinating planet. Just just looking at it when you see some of the photos over. It's it's pockmarked it's got an ultra hot one side facing the sun. They very very cold on the other. It's it's really an interesting place. Probably gotTA learn a hell of a lot. That's right it's not a place to go for a holiday even when you're not in lockdown now getting away with this well launched eighteen months ago two thousand eighteen still.
