NASA tests & data storage: Astro Morning Tea (Captioned)


  Last updated January 18, 2018 at 11:48 am


Join ICRAR Astrophysicist Dr Luke Davies and Cosmos Consultant Gregory Rowbotham for a New Year’s morning tea full of space (and other) news with a spin.

This week: NASA conducts test runs, *something* is discovered between galaxies, and we find out why the terms ‘big-endian & little-endian’ are used to describe data storage. To celebrate the new year, we also find out how the Universe is likely to end.

Don’t forget if you have a question you want us to answer, just put it in the comments below and we’ll get on it in a future episode.

Astro Morning Tea with ICRAR – every fortnight.

Additional production by Pete Wheeler, Kirsten Gottschalk and Cass Rowles.
