Recap: Nov. 3rd - Host: Ted Rudyk

Thanks to Ted for bringing the stories this week, and thanks for everyone who came out!  Here are some of the things that were covered.

The Kepler spacecraft can 'hear' a red giant singing in space.

Saturn's B ring has a lot more to say, and we've translated it.

The gullies on mars can be created by carbon dioxide, not water.

How common is a planetary system like ours?  The keck observatory has an answer.

Amateur astronomer Mike Lynch's telescope blew up!  The telescope happened to be cover-less during the day, and the sun crossed the mirror concentrating the light on the secondary mirror.

Robonaut 2 is heading skyward in december aboard discovery, check out its jobs here.

thanks to all for coming,  see you next week!
