Most parents have had that uncomfortable conversation with their children at some point. Mommy, Daddy, where do stars come from? You hem and haw, mumble a few words about angular momentum and primordial hydrogen and then cleverly change the subject. Well, you don’t have to avoid the subject any longer. Pamela and Fraser describe formation of stars, large and small, in a tasteful manner, using only understandable and scientific language.
Astronomy Cast is a weekly podcast hosted by Fraser Cain from Universe Today, and Dr. Pamela Gay (of Slacker Astronomy fame). Each week we take a fact-based journey through the cosmos to explain the discoveries in astronomy, and understand how we know what we know.
