I'm gonna give it to you straight: we make beams of neutrinos. Neutrinos are particles that barely touch anything as they pass through everything.

Muons are very small fundamental particles that are much heavier than they should be. 

they fall apart pretty quickly, but they rain down on us. It's magical.

How does a camera work?

no, a digital camera, I mean. 

yeah... yeah.. optics. I know all about lenses.
how does the plate at the back.. the one the photons hit..
how does it turn photons into electronic signals that turn into digital information?
we're talking: CCDs,CMOS cameras, MKIDs, and superconducting bolometers!

Me and Amanda Bauer Answer a question from dave!

"First of all I really enjoy the podcast!  And for a while I’ve been wanting to send in this question and think it would be perfect for the new segment.  My question is:  What direction would one look to see the big bang? Now, I understand that we are in an ever expanding universe and technically the big bang is in all directions but I guess I’m having a hard time mentally grasping the concept. I’ve heard the balloon analogy but I just can’t understand that if I was expanding on an inflating balloon I would still be able to look to the center of said balloon, right?!. Conversely, would it be possible to look away from the big bang and into the space our universe is expanding into?

 

I hope this hasn’t already been covered but if it has would it be possible to go more in depth with an explanation of the expansion itself. Thanks for such an awesome podcast!

Long story short: there's no such thing as a stable orbit... any two objects in orbit will emit gravitational waves.. and slowly get closer and closer together. If the two objects in question are neutron stars, we can even detect the gravitational waves! We hope to "hear" them soon with the LIGO gravitational Wave Observatory!

Pssst. Want some free energy? 

who doesn't want an unlimited supply of energy? no one, that's who!

today we're talking about how to use a black hole to turn everyday objects (like garbage and ducks) into sweet, sweet energy.

our guest is Kai Nagata, and the physicists are Laura Hainline and Mike Zemcov.

three things to note:

1) listen past the end credits to hear a long-ass conversation about whether having free energy is a good thing. 

2) Kai's internet connection was lousy and kept dropping out. so today's episode is less conversational than we are used to. we had to fix it in editing.

3) speaking of editing, the bulk of this episode's edits were done by a gentleman named John Heath. John made our horrible skype recording sound so good. If you meet John on the street, please give him all the money in your pockets. you know, from me.

listen, i'm going to admit it here. I didn't know much about how superconductors work when i chose this topic.

I don't know why i never learned how it worked, but I never did. whoops. 

anyway, the answer is crazy. it has to do with electrons getting married and having to get their credit card spending under control.

Hi tiphyters!

there was a problem this week and we had to postpone recording. boooo I know. 

but don't feel bad. the next episode will have ryan north and fiona return. we'll talk about superconductors.

anyway, I thought I'd try one of the fun features of the brachiolope media network: The Substitute Brachiolope System.

so the deal is that when one of our shows can't make it (for whatever reason) we can reroute content from one of our sister podcasts. 

That way you get lots of science, and we feel slightly less guilty.

Today's Show is Awesome because our guest is TED LEO! the guy from the intro-song (Tell Balgeary, Balgury is Dead)! I bring together Vicky Scowcroft and Mike Zemcov and we talk about how GIANT SOUND WAVES which rang through the universe at a time before recombination (like.. 13+ billion years ago) provided that seeds for gravitational collapse. as a result, the size of these sound waves explain the size of the largest "objects" in the universe: gravitational super clusters! They also explain why there's nothing bigger.

It turns out that before there was any differentiation at all, there was music.

Hey everyone! 

I decided to do a show on Quasars. because I didn't know what they were. So then I looked It up. Turns out, they're black holes! My Favourite.

I also looked up two of my other favourites, Laura Hainline and Sean Moran. Turns out, they know Everything about Quasars. 

So then I looked up the author of one of my favourite webcomics,  Howard Tayler.

This show is fantastic. Too bad we had to record the show using two tin cans and a piece of string, and an old wax cylinder sound recorder. Oh well. It's not like I have any money to spend on sound quality (I spend it all on quality of character).

by the way, if anyone can spot the magical SUPERFLUOUS word I've worked into the usual script, send me an email with it as the subject line, and I'll write you back a prize. 

the prize is a haiku about whatever's on my mind.

Also note that there are a couple extra bits after the bunny song. not much. I left a couple extra (edited) minutes in the regular part of the show, so we ran a couple min overtime.

Hello everyone. Allow me to introduce my old friend Ken Clark, and my new friend Amanda Bauer. He works on Ice Cube and she works in australia. But he's not a bar tender, and she is not a kangarooist. rather, they are my NEWEST TITANIUM PHYSICISTS! and today we're going to talk about how dark things matter. specifically, dark matter.

We've invited the clever Kai Nagata, the revolutionary canadian journalist onto the show. I felt that we'd need a journalist to figure out the nature of that which could not be seen but which clearly exists.

Check out the website for this episode especially. Both Amanda and Kai have done some fantastic things which can be found on the internet, and you should not miss out. Ken is fantastic too. Once I made him a spinach sallad and I didn't wash the spinach enough so it was super sandy, but he still wolfed it down and told me that it was the greatest salad he ever ate because he is VERY POLITE.

enjoy the show.
