11/19/15 Radio Show. Just me, music, and talking in to the mic about the universe.

Aired on WPRB 103.3 FM from 2 to 4am on Thursday, November 19, 2015.

I’ve been doing a lot of interviews, but this one is just me, some music, and some chat about Enceladus (moon of Jupiter that’s getting scientists all excited) and sound waves in the early universe. Because yolo.

I talk a lot about Enceladus and why it’s such a promising moon for us to study. It turns out that there’s geothermal activity! Geysers and volcanoes and stuff! This is due to tidal effects with a bigger moon nearby – Dione.

Additionally, during a later mic break I discuss Baryon Acoustic Oscillations – these are sound waves in the early universe that pushed matter around and greatly affected the distribution of galaxies and galaxy clusters in our universe.
