SciWorks Radio Podcast – Educational and Scientific Narration
Voiceover Nerd Productions, Inc. remains committed to science learning and accessibility. I am therefore refurbishing many of my SciWorks Radio Podcast episodes and making them available for anyone (students, teachers, science enthusiasts) to listen to and/or read. These educational science podcasts were created between 2014 and 2017 when I worked at SciWorks, now called Kaleideum. Located in Winston-Salem, NC, Kaleideum is an interactive museum of arts, sciences, and exploration formed by the merger of The Children’s Museum of Winston-Salem and SciWorks in July 2016. The two museums merged into a single organization to reimagine learning and better meet the needs of our diverse community by providing more access to informal science discovery and cultural experiences.
The fact that you’re not all hydrogen means that your home star (in your case, the Sun), is made from recycled material. In fact, the Sun is made from atoms that have come into being over several star’s lifecycles; Star is born, star manufactures new and different atoms in its core, star explodes. A new star is made from the materials and new atoms from the exploded star. Rinse. Repeat. Do this for 14 billion years.
In this podcast, I speak with Dr. John Barrow, Professor of Mathematical Sciences in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics at the University of Cambridge in England about the evolution and “archeology” of the known universe.
