This Week In Space podcast: Episode 118 — Understanding the Darkness

Understanding the Darkness – Dark Matter and Dark Energy – YouTube


Watch On

On Episode 118 of This Week In Space, Rod Pyle and guest co-host Isaac Arthur talk with Alina Kiessling and Jason Rhodes, both research scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, about the concepts of dark matter and dark energy and their broader implications for cosmology, exoplanet research, and more.

For many of us, dark matter and dark energy are two of the least understood areas of cosmology and astrophysics. Both Kiessling and Rhodes are working on major space telescope projects to research “dark physics,” as they will explain. Guest co-host Isaac Arthur asks compelling, comprehensive questions about physics and cosmology while Rod asks things like “is dark energy dangerous?” because, let’s face it, someone has to ask the dumb questions. Join us for the fascinating deep dive into dark forces!
