It’s finals week here at Drexel, and things are very hectic. I wanted to share something fun with you, however. One of the students in my “Introductory Astrophysics” class wanted to do an extra project to get honors credit for the course. Going by the radio name “Stella Luna,” she wrote, produced, and presented 2 podcasts on some recent topics in astronomy.
Episode 1:Where do the stars live?
Here she discusses the recent announcement of Hubble observations of a galaxy formed at Million years after the Big Bang.
Episode 2:Stars Constant Companions?
Stella talks about the discovery of a new 6 planet system by the Kepler mission, and how Kepler detects planets in the first place.
Take a listen. She did a great job.
