Astronomy Lectures

Post by geckzilla » Wed Jun 03, 2015 3:38 am

There are a lot of good lectures out there on the web and sometimes I post them in various threads if they are pertinent. Here's a new thread just for good lectures if you happen to find them. I just watched this month's public lecture which is held at STScI. I can honestly say I have never been disappointed in a single one since I started watching these so if you have the time and want to see more, definitely check out the public lectures playlist.

The Weirdest Stars in the Universe by Dr. Emily Levesque
Lecture actually starts at 13:12 so if you are short on time and want to skip ahead, click:

Enjoyed this one. Earth and its conservation from a cosmic perspective; the number she arrives at for the optimal human population over the next few million years is surprisingly low. Finally, a roomful of people blithely consider the destruction of capitalism.
