Podcast: Fun from the Sun

By Michael on August 19, 2010 at 11:50 pm | In Audio Podcasts | No Comments

This month Michael (that’s me), Doug and Mike get together on Skype to discuss the Sun.

If I may have a moment, the Sun is unquestionably the most important thing in our universe. Every scrap of energy we have on this planet comes from the Sun. It’s big, bright and hugely important to the evolution of Man and our fate in the future. It’s also a cauldron of convecting plasma that behaves, in ways, like a big, boiling pot of water.

In the podcast we talk specifically about aurora and their source — sun spots, solar flares and coronal mass ejections. And we go off-topic and make jokes and stuff, too. An abbreviated version of this podcast is available at The 365 Days of Astronomy Podcast.
