I Dub Thee Egotron

We’re back from Fall travel hiatus with an episode that travels from Mars to the formation of the earliest galaxies. The astroquarks, Josh, Addie and Jim, return from a break to catch up on the latest planetary and galactic news. There is new indirect evidence that a largish body may be lurking in the distant regions of our solar system. Others have called this “Planet 9”. Listen in to hear why strange quark Josh prefers the moniker “Egotron”. Charm quark Addie fills in on the latest rocket news and mishaps. That, plus a new census on the number of galaxies in the early universe shows ten times more than previously thought. Top quark Jim tells us why that’s no big deal.
