Ep. 382: Degenerate Matter

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (0.0KB) In some of the most extreme objects in the Universe, white dwarfs and neutron stars, matter gets strange, transforming into a material that physicists call “degenerate matter”. Let’s learn what it is, how it forms. Download the show [MP3] | Jump to...

Ep. 379: Fermi’s Atom Splitting

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (0.0KB) When he wasn’t puzzling the mystery of alien civilizations, Enrico Fermi was splitting atoms. He realized that when atoms were split, the neutrons released could go on and split other atoms, creating a chain reaction – and the most powerful...
