January 2017 Extra: A Falcon Led The Iridium Ark

January 2017 Extra

In the show this time, Elaine Sadler talks to us about talks to us about Australian Square Kilometre Array Pathfinder (ASKAP), Dr. Indy Leclercq tells us about his diffuse galactic emission research and your astronomical questions are answered by Fiona, Ben and George in Ask an Astronomer.

Jodbite with Dr. Indy Leclercq

In this month's Jodbite we interview former Jodcast producer Dr. Indy Leclercq about his PhD thesis and recent viva. The title of Indy's thesis was "The Local Radio Sky: High Frequency Resolution Single Dish Studies of Polarized Galactic Synchrotron Emission around 1.4 GHz". Indy tells us all about his viva (which took place the day before recording!), and we discuss his PhD project, for which he used the Arecibo telescope to study the polarization structure of diffuse emission in the galaxy.

Interview with Professor Elaine Sadler

Minnie interviews Dr. Elaine Sadler, director of the Centre of Excellence for All-sky Astrophysics (CAASTRO). In this interview, Dr. Sadler discusses the work that CAASTRO does, and she also discusses her involvement with the Australian Square Kilometer Array Pathfinder (ASKAP) and how that telescope is being used to prepare for the operation of the Square Kilometer Array (SKA) as well as how it is being used to search for hydrogen gas in very distant galaxies seen forming in the early universe.
