Their stories this week:

NASA budget proposal

JWST primary mirror fully assembled

Asteroid Retrieval Mission delayed to 2023 (and probably forever)


Man in India killed by meteor (NASA says no…would have been a cool way to go though)

Hidden Galaxies!!

We’ve had an abundance of news stories for the past few months, and not enough time to get to them all. So we’ve started a new system. Instead of adding all of the stories to the spreadsheet each week, we are now using a tool called Trello to submit and vote on stories we would like to see covered each week, and then Fraser will be selecting the stories from there. Here is the link to the Trello WSH page (http://bit.ly/WSHVote), which you can see without logging in. If you’d like to vote, just create a login and help us decide what to cover!

We record the Weekly Space Hangout every Friday at 12:00 pm Pacific / 3:00 pm Eastern. You can watch us live on Google+, Universe Today, or the Universe Today YouTube page.

You can also join in the discussion between episodes over at our Weekly Space Hangout Crew group in G+!

    How did they know the masses of the two black holes prior to collision?

    I like the space pancakes analogy.
