How Cool Is That? Exploring the Low-Temperature Universe 

Although cataclysmic explosions and the fiery furnaces of massive stars are attention-grabbers, many of the most critically important events and physical processes in astronomy take place in the coolest objects in the cosmos: regions wherein stars and planets are born, as just one example.

NASA has begun a series of studies of four concepts that will in a few years’ time produce candidate designs for a major space observatory to begin construction later next decade.

Please join our regular hosts, Tony Darnell, Alberto Conti, and Harley Thronson, as they discuss with Dr. Margaret Meixner from the Space Telescope Science Institute and Dr. David Leisawitz of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center the science that can be revealed by an observatory operating at the longest infrared wavelengths.
