(un)Earthed: Experience the SETI Search through Sound
A Conversation with SETI Artist in Residence Alfred (Daedelus) Darlington What if you could experience the SETI search through sound? The SETI Institute’s artist in residence Alfred (Daedelus) Darlington is creating (un)Earthed, a sonic experience that immerses the listener in the SETI Institute's iconic search for technosignals. Daedelus is a trailblazing artist, DJ, and producer, who has been active in electronic music for the past 20 years. During this SETI Live discussion with SETI AIR Director Bettina Forget, Daedelus will discuss how they employ sound sourced from space exploration and fuse it with ambisonic technology to create a listening environment that acts as a metaphor for the research taking place at the Allen Telescope Array.

SpaceX is targeting Thursday, June 3 for Falcon 9’s launch of the twenty-second Commercial Resupply Services mission (CRS-22).Liftoff is targeted for 1:29 p.m. EDT, or 17:29 UTC, from Launch Complex 39A (LC-39A) at Kennedy Space Center, Florida. A backup launch opportunity is available on Friday, June 4 at 1:03 p.m. EDT, or 17:03 UTC. Following stage separation, SpaceX will land Falcon 9’s first stage on the “Of Course I Still Love You” droneship, which will be located in the Atlantic Ocean. Dragon will separate from Falcon 9’s second stage about twelve minutes after liftoff and autonomously dock to the space station on Saturday, June 5.

Weekly Space Hangout: June 2, 2021 – Advances In Warp Drive Technology Research w/Dr. Mario Borunda
This week we welcome Dr. Mario Borunda to the show. In his recent article published on EarthSky.com, Mario discusses advancements in warp drive technology research. You can read his article, "Warp Drives: Physicists Give Chances Of Faster-Than-Light Space Travel A Boost," here: https://earthsky.org/space/warp-drive-chances-of-faster-than-light-space-travel/ Dr. Borunda double-majored in Physics and Mathematics earning his B.S. from the University of Texas at El Paso in 2003. He received his Ph.D. in Physics from Texas A&M University in 2008. He spent three years as a postdoc and nine months as a research associate at Harvard University. In September 2012 he became a faculty member of the physics department at Oklahoma State University. Dr. Borunda has also been a visiting researcher at Harvard University. Mario has performed research in several areas. His work at UTEP, performed with Jorge Lopez, involved using α-particle spectroscopy as a teaching tool. As a graduate student (advised by Jairo Sinova) and post-doc (under Eric Heller) he performed calculations on electronic conductivity in two-dimensional systems, proposed and described an atom-laser coupling scheme that induces spin-orbit interaction in ultra-cold atoms, and simulated electron transport in graphene. At Oklahoma State his research has focused in quantum information, the quantum-to-classical boundary in chaotic systems, and using theoretical methods to predict novel materials for energy production and electronic applications. More details about the work performed at OSU is described in the research sections of The Borunda Research Group's website: https://borunda.okstate.edu/members.html#borunda Dr. Borunda is enthusiastic about working with undergraduate students and has worked towards producing a positive impact as undergraduate research coordinator for the OSU physics program, with minority students through the OK-LSAMP program, as faculty advisor of OSU’s SACNAS chapter, and as technical officer with the National Society of Hispanic Physicists. ****************************************

How to Hunt for Distant Worlds
Emily Rickman, European Space Agency/Space Telescope Science Institute
Since the discovery of the first planet orbiting a Sun-like star in 1995, more than 4,000 exoplanets have been found. These widespread planetary systems confirm that our solar system is just one of many in our Milky Way galaxy. The discovery of such systems provided intriguing insights, challenging our perspectives about how planetary systems form and evolve. But how do astronomers search for these exoplanets and what can we find out about them? Join Dr. Rickman as she describes the scientific hunt for these distant worlds. Host: Frank Summers, Space Telescope Science Institute

再楫 “天舟” 向天河！天舟二号整装待发 LongMarch-7 Y3 • Tianzhou-2
#Tianzhou2 #天舟二号 #LongMarch7 地点(Launch Site)：中国海南文昌航天发射场 LC-201
Arianespace Flight ST32 - OneWeb (EN)
Performed on Friday, May 29 at precisely 02:38 a.m. local time at Russia’s Vostochny Cosmodrome (05:38 p.m. on May 28, UTC), Soyuz Flight ST31 orbited 36 new OneWeb satellites – bringing the size of the fleet in orbit to 218. Flight ST32 was the 57th Soyuz mission carried out by Arianespace and its Starsem affiliate. “Congratulations to all the teams who made this seventh launch dedicated to OneWeb’s satellites a success,” said Stéphane Israël, Chief Executive Officer of Arianespace and Starsem. “At Arianespace, we embrace the idea that space should serve the ultimate goal to creating a better life on Earth… By supporting OneWeb’s success, anywhere, at any time I am convinced that we do just so.” Arianespace has launched 218 OneWeb satellites through seven Soyuz launches to date. Arianespace will perform 12 more Soyuz launches through 2021 and 2022. These launches will enable OneWeb to complete the deployment of its full global constellation of low Earth orbit satellites before the end of 2022. OneWeb’s mission is to create a global connectivity platform through a next-generation satellite constellation in low Earth orbit. The OneWeb constellation will deliver high-speed, low-latency connectivity to a wide range of customer sectors, including aviation, maritime, enterprise and governments. Central to its purpose, OneWeb seeks to bring connectivity to the hardest to reach places, where fiber cannot reach, and thereby bridge the digital divide. The satellite prime contractor is OneWeb Satellites, a joint venture of OneWeb and Airbus Defence and Space. The satellites were produced in Florida, USA in its leading-edge satellite manufacturing facilities that can build up to two satellites per day on a series production line dedicated to spacecraft assembly, integration, and testing.

Hunting for Exoplanets with Dr. Jessie Christiansen – Space Radio Live!
This week I was delighted to chat with Dr. Jessie Christiansen about the search for exoplanets and her work on NASA's TESS mission. We chatted about a wide ranging list of topics, including: ► How exoplanets are named;
► How far away the most distant detected exoplanet is;
► The prospects for detecting exomoons;
► The oddball nature of many exoplanet systems that have been detected;
► And much more. Jessie is an astrophysicist with the NASA Exoplanet Science Institute at Caltech, where she searches for, characterizes, and catalogs planets orbiting other stars. In 2018 she was awarded the NASA Exceptional Engineering Achievement Medal for her role with the successful NASA Kepler Mission, which discovered thousands of exoplanets and revealed that rocky planets are common throughout the galaxy. Jessie now works on the NASA Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) to find and study the nearest planetary systems to Earth – systems that will be perfect for further study with the next generation of ground- and space-based telescopes.
