This week we are excited to welcome Dr. Aaron Rosengren and Di Wu, with Dr. Nataša Todorović in the chat, to the Weekly Space Hangout. Their research team recently identified gravitational interactions which have produced a superhighway network of sorts within the Solar System. This network can reduce transport times for objects traveling between Jupiter and Neptune to decades rather than hundreds of thousands, or even millions, of years.
Tonight we are very excited to welcome Dr. Ann Marie Cody from the SETI Institute to the WSH. In her own words, Ann Marie searches for "the weird." Young stars exhibit some pretty bizarre behaviors, all of which have astrophysical explanations. However, there may be even stranger things out there, ready to be discovered with space telescopes. Her upcoming project will be searching for "alien megastructures" using the Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS).
