Episode 6: Space… sort of

Moon_Water_The_Low_Gravity_WaterEpisode 6 of Science… sort of is probably the most sciencey episode so far.  We bring in an extra-terrestrial expert to talk about water on the moon.

SPECIAL GUEST: Charles Barnhart (UCSC)

  • We contemplate the price of lunar bottled water and where to hide a space elevator from terrorists.
  • This is an oldie but a goodie.  Ryan reminds us that there may be dinosaurs on the moon just waiting for cyborg paleontologists to discover them.  Read the story here.
  • We return to earth to discuss the upcoming Chinese epic, Red Cliff.  Patrick has a surprise up his sleeve and Justin and Ryan don’t care for it (I think they are just jealous).
  • Are you going to die 3 billion years from now when our galaxy collides with another? Chances are you’ll be dead already but at least future humans will get to crown a galactic champion, or will they?  Read the layman’s version here or read the scientific article here.  See the cat and mouse galaxy here.
