Get your daily dose of all that's new in space and astronomy. The sky is not the limit, as we bring you a fast-paced roundup of launches, landings, and everyday discoveries. The Daily Space is brought to you by the team behind CosmoQuest at the Planetary Science Institute, and features hosts Dr. Pamela L. Gay & Annie Wilson.

Sometimes how news is reported is as much of a story as the stories in that news. Today is that day. I talk about the way two different results are communicated: the discovery of a neutron transitioning from being an x-ray binary to being a millisecond-pulsar, and the observation that the Sombrero Galaxy has a high proportion of metal-rich stars in…
 
Carbon dioxide and salt water ice on Mars melts when the sun’s angle changes, leading to “Crocus Melting”, according to new research. Betelgeuse is actually changing shape due to stellar activity or dust ejection. And the OLA camera is malfunctioning on OSIRIS-REx - so it can’t focus on all the rocks, currently, but this is not expected to cause an…
 
We’ve been seeing a lot of reports about a possible alien signal from a weird radio source observed by the CHIME telescope. We look at the original research paper and sort fact from fiction (and the aliens are fiction). We also look at new efforts to work with the UN to limit the effects of satellite constellations on astronomy, and the reprocessin…
 
It's been a quiet week for spaceflight with only two launches! Annie chats about the PolarNOx and SpaceX launches before introducing India's new space robot. Unfortunately, she's also the bearer of bad news from the latest GAO report on JWST: there's still problems slowing down integration, which means that there are more delays and cost overruns f…
 
In today’s episode we take a look a the hot planet Kelt-9b that is getting super-heated by its super-hot star, and examine how a white dwarf - brown dwarf binary periodically goes boom. We also note that the US House is proposing a bill to change all NASA’s human exploration plans to repoint them at Mars.…
 
No, Betelgeuse still hasn’t exploded, but other things have gone boom in the past and today we look at the results of one of the brightest supernovae, SN2006gy, and the oldest supernovae that went into forming the metal poor ancient star J0815+4729. Understanding these objects takes powerful computers, and we also discuss how new materials science …
 
This weekend SpaceX purposely exploded a Falcon9 to test the Crew Dragon abort system and as everything went as planned, and we discuss what is next - maybe - for the SpaceX human space program. From there, we look at two new comets from other solar systems, nitrogen in comets from our solar system, and then take the promised deep dive into news ab…
 
25 years after the discovery of exoplanets, and more than 4000 planets later we’re still getting press releases on new planets. In this episode we argue planet discoveries are now science as usual. We then take a look at how the ash from fires and the Tael Volcano are changing the color of the sunset, and for some the color of our days.…
 
Betelgeuse is still fading and we all have dreams of supernovae dancing through our heads. As we imagine what could be, we look at the cause of gamma ray bursts. We also look at how some think one star - nu Indi - is enough to get a timestamp on the collision of the Milky Way with the Gaia-Enceladus dwarf galaxy. We end things with a brief look at …
 
It is Monday, and for many of us, it is the first normal week of the new year. Kids are returning to college, astronomers are returning from AAS, and TV shows are returning from hiatus. As we try to figure out what normal is going to look like for 2020, we here at the Daily Space want to remind you - that new normal probably doesn’t include aliens.…
 
This week is the 235th meeting of the American Astronomical Society. Held in Honolulu Hawaii, this meeting is giving some of our team a chance to interact with the people making the news… while others of us are left behind to keep everything going here at CosmoQuest. Due to time zone differences, today’s Daily Space is built on some of yesterday’s …
 
Today we start off with a quick take on everyone's favorite fading star, Betelguese. This red giant is fading away right before the eyes of anyone with clear skies, and we don't know why, and many hope it might be gearing up to explode (but it probably isn't). Join us as we discuss what we do and don't know about this system. We also take a quick l…
 
It has long been a joke in Astronomy that if you wanted to really mess with someone, you should ask “how do magnetic fields and dust effect that?” These two factors, which permeate most of space in various amounts, are extraordinarily hard to understand, but affect everything. To make life easier, we often assume their effects are negligible, and h…
 
We've had an amazing trip, even if we didn't get to see rocket launches. But we can't help but to comment on science when we see it mishandled, and this time it was a ride at Disney's Animal Kingdom. There was a ride that took us on a "time machine" to catch a dinosaur, right before the meteor impact that we believe caused the major extinction even…
 
Today is a news-free day. We’re not quite sure how that happens, but there just weren’t any big science results not under embargo that we can bring you. So… instead… we’re going to help you with your holiday shopping. It is that amazing time of the year when it seems like absolutely everything is on sale, and we all have some extra time on with wor…
