Yup, it's come to this. Starting December 2020, I will begin running sponsored segments on Ask a Spaceman. I know this is a big deal for some of you, so I'd like to explain to you what's going on and how it's not actually a big deal.
Most importantly, the ad revenue that I'l be getting isn't some huge life-changing amount, so I still need your help from Patreon to keep the show going.
If you sign up for Patreon for as little as $1/month, you'll get access to a private ad-free version of the show: patreon.com/pmsutter.
So we're cool, right?
Why is James Clerk Maxwell so dang awesome? How was he able to unify the forces of electricity and magnetism? Why was his work so revolutionary? I discuss these questions and more in today’s Ask a Spaceman!
Part 2 of 2! How did the observation of a kilonova change astronomy? How did that one observation kill off alternate models of gravity? What’s in store for the future of gravitational waves? I discuss these questions and more in today’s Ask a Spaceman!
Part 1! What are gravitational waves? What makes them? How can we detect them here on Earth, and why is it a big deal? I discuss these questions and more in today’s Ask a Spaceman!
