Space becomes “sonified” in this visualization of a cluster of galaxies imaged by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. Time flows left to right, and the frequency of sound changes from bottom to top, ranging from 30 to 1,000 hertz. Objects near the bottom of the image produce lower notes, while those near the top produce higher ones. Most of the visible specks are galaxies housing countless stars. A few individual stars shine brightly in the foreground. Stars and compact galaxies create short, clear tones, while sprawling spiral galaxies emit longer notes that change pitch. The higher density of galaxies near the center of the image — the heart of this galaxy cluster, known as RXC J0142.9+4438 — results in a swell of mid-range tones halfway through the video. Hubble's Advanced Camera for Surveys and Wide Field Camera 3 acquired this image on Aug. 13, 2018.

Our modern lives run on plastic. It's in the computers and phones we use. It's in our clothing, it wraps our food. It surrounds us every day, and when we throw it out, it's devastating for the environment. This week we air a live show we recorded at the 2019 Advancement of Science meeting in Washington, D.C., where Bethany Brookshire sat down with three plastics researchers - Christina Simkanin, Chelsea Rochman, and Jennifer Provencher - and a live audience to discuss plastics in our oceans. Where they are, where they are going, and what they carry with them.
Chères poditrices, chers poditeurs, bonsoir! Dans l’épisode précédent la semaine dernière, nous nous sommes bien a-”mue”-sés avec les petites bêtes de Taupo. Dans cet épisode, nous restaurons l’équilibre entre le monde animal et le monde végétal, puisque nous parlerons de plantes. Bon, pas que de plantes en réalité, mais aussi d’insectes… l’ennemi numéro un des végétaux. Alors les plantes sont-elles sans défense contre l’agresseur insecte ? Pour répondre à cette question, nous accueillons Cloé Villard, doctorante au Laboratoire Agronomie et Environnement de Nancy pour nous raconter comment les plantes luttent contre un monde qui les oppressent.
Nous sommes le mercredi 6 mars de l’an 2019, vous êtes dans l’émission 365, bienvenue sur Podcast Science !
