Mr. Noah Zimmerman joins us to talk about nuclear magnetic resonance. you know MRIs? "Magnetic resonance Imaging" is what it stands for, "Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging" is what it actually stands for. Essentially, magnets are used to make the nuclei in your atoms stand up and dance. 

 

Our experts are the Mighty Dr. Fiona Burnell, and the Mighty Dr. Abby Shockley. 

THIS IS SO MUCH FUN!

Episode 50: The Death Of Spirals

Galaxies are cool. some are eliplical (blobby) some are swirly. there's a reason why. Our guest today is Katrina Griffiths from the verity podcast. and my experts are Sean Moran and Laura Hainline (they're married. that's why they keep interrupting each other. it's kinda sweet, i think)

 

wooo! 50 episodes!

Christopher Reynaga is an awesome author, and he has written the best story ever which is called  I Only Am Escaped Alone to Tell Thee . look it up, a link to a podcast reading of the story will be on teh website.

 

Anyway, I wanted to talk to him so I told him that I'd explain many worlds Quantum mechanics to him. well, that and copenhagen interpretation, why not.

So this week's episode is where the math side of physics meets the philosophy side of physics!

Experts are Ken Clark and Tia Miceli .

Episode 47: The Song Of Falling Stars with Robot Hugs

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!

 

Today's guest it Robot Hugs, the author of the Robot Hugs comic. The Physicists are Jocelyn Read and David Tsang! WHAT FUN!

The most amazing thing has come to pass: a telescope at the south pole called BICEP2 has detected decisive evidence demonstrating that the model of how the universe grew over the first second of existence is correct. It detected evidence of gravitational waves which were generated during inflation! I've put the best team together. Katie Mack! Mike Zemcov... and returning to the show, RYAN NORTH. it's a the best episode we have made.
