This weeks episode is actually on the Milikan Oil Drop, but... sometimes bad lables happen!
 

Join +Fraser Cain  and +Pamela Gay for a live episode of Astronomy Cast. We'll record our 30-minute show, and then stick around to answer your questions about space and astronomy. 

Astronomy Cast Ep. 372: The Becquerel Experiment

Antoine Henri Becquerel discovered radioactivity completely by accident when he exposed a chunk of uranium to a photographic plate. This opened up a whole new field of research to uncover the source of the mysterious energy.

Astronomy Cast Ep. 371: Eddington Eclipse Experiment

At the turn of the 20th Century, Einstein's theory of relativity stunned the physics world, but the experimental evidence needed to be found. And so, in 1919, another respected astronomer, Arthur Eddington, observed the deflection of stars by the gravity of the Sun during a solar eclipse. Here's the story of that famous experiment.

Actually, I'll watch (as I always do) when I edit the audio for inclusion in +365 Days of Astronomy Podcast. You can enjoy this audio during your morning commute next Monday, March 30th! Free on iTunes, of course...

Come celebrate science (and help us fund and do science) during our 36-hour Hangoutathon. During this event, we invite you to race to map the worlds; Mercury, the Moon, Mars (yes, we’ll have Mars!), and cold distant Vesta. While you do science, we’ll take you on a tour around the world as we follow the terminator to Global Star Party events taking place around the world. We’ll also be joined by a myriad of guests. (Stay tuned for complete listings!)

This is Part 2 of 4

Episode 3 of our new series!  While this hangout is designed for educators, the top half includes an interview with Herschel Mission Scientist +Göran Pilbratt . We think this interview will be an awesome bit of new science learning for everyone!
 
Our universe started as a fog of particles, but slight variations in density allowed the formation of stars, galaxies, and the large-scale structures of the universe. In this Hangout we’ll discuss early structure formation and fast forward to today’s stars with planets.

Got time for a #MomentofScience?

Today is all about energy
 
The Earth is warm because energy created in the core of the Sun is able to travel from the Sun’s Core to its surface, and then shine through space all the way to Earth. As it travels, the light is transformed from deadly high-energy particles to the nice warm light that keeps us alive. In this Hangout, we will discuss the primary ways energy is transported: convection, conduction, and radiation.

Join host +Pamela L. Gay in one hour
 
Japanese Moon team +ハクト/HAKUTO knows how to have fun: their lunar robots plan to race on the Moon (after landing with +Astrobotic), explore a Moon cave, and also reenact part of a famous anime! Come meet the awesome folks behind this rising space exploration influencer with a live #GLXP  Hangout.

Overview
A global team of scientists and engineers are all working toward constructing missions to land on, travel across, and send video back from the Moon. With this new Google Hangout on Air series, co-hosted by +CosmoQuest, we will introduce you to the men & women behind each of these planned missions and bring you all the latest developments and inspiration from the +Google Lunar XPRIZE.

Astronomy Cast Ep. 369: The Fizeau Experiment

Light is tricky stuff, and it took scientists hundreds of years to puzzle out what this stuff is. But they poked and prodded at it with many clever experiments to try to measure its speed, motion and interaction with the rest of the Universe. For example, the Fizeau Experiment, which ran light through moving water to see if that caused a difference.
