Weekly Space Roundup for January 19, 2012

BadAstronomyHero

Every week, my friend Fraser Cain of Universe Today gathers together a few scientists and science journalists to review the past week's space and astronomy news. This week we talked about boiling planets, the demise of Phobos-Grunt, dark matter galaxies, and an Earth-sized telescope to zoom in on a supermassive black hole.


Participating were Fraser, Pamela Gay, Alan Boyle, Emily Lakdawalla, Jon Voisey, Nicole Gugliucci, Nancy Atkinson, and me. We do these on Google+, which has a feature called Hangouts On Air, which allows for live video broadcasts like this, and also the ability to save them on YouTube. We do these roundups every Thursday at 18:00 UTC (13:00 Eastern Standard Time). You don't have to be signed up for G+ to watch them, but if you are (and it's free and easy) we ask also that you +1 them, so we get an idea of how many folks are tuning in. Thanks!
