The astronomy, technology and space science news podcast.

SpaceTime with Stuart Gary Series 23 Episode 63

*Serious questions continue over sciences understanding of cosmic history

It’s becoming increasingly clear that scientists will need to rethink their understanding of the fundamental history of the Universe.  A new set of precision distance measurements reported in the Astrophysical Journal Letters have reinforced discrepancies in two competing values for the Hubble constant which describes the expansion rate of the universe.

 

*Pilbara meteor lights up early morning outback skies

Well, despite what you may have heard elsewhere, the bright green fireball which streaked across the remote Pilbara skies last weekend was not space junk or the giant asteroid 2002 NN4 – it was just a small meteor -- and it didn’t fall to Earth -- but rather grazed the upper atmosphere before continuing on its journey through interplanetary space.

 

*SpaceX keeping a busy launch schedule

SpaceX has been maintaining a busy space launch schedule with another Falcon 9 rocket successfully lifting off with another 58 Starlink internet communications satellites as well as 3 SkySat Earth observation spacecraft.

*The need to weaponize space 

The United States found the need to create a separate defence arm for the space warfare arena last year – in order to meet the growing threat posed by existing Russian and Chinese space forces which have already weaponized space. The new branch will defend American space assets including communications, navigation, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance satellites. And with Australia having contributed significant funding towards some of these spacecraft, as well its on going ground support role – comes the obvious question -- should Australia have its own space force within the ADF.
