Pint in the Sky

Sometimes there’s nothing better than grabbing a pint with some friends. Now, what if those friends were astrophysicists? Pint in the Sky is precisely that, where Dr. Katie Mack and Dr. Alan Duffy have a relaxed conversation about some of the most fascinating things in the entire cosmos!

Partial Solar Eclipse – 23 October 2014

Here in Los Angeles, we’re pretty fortunate to have sunny skies the majority of the time, so when our Moon’s position is slightly placed between the line of sight between us and the Sun, it’s quite a big deal!   Today, this partial solar eclipse...
