Hello everyone:

In this week's episode of Astronomy News with The Cosmic Companion, we take a look at a new idea about dark matter, we learn about new images of the asteroid Ryugu taken by the Hayabusa2 spacecraft, and we delve deep under the atmosphere of Jupiter, studying one of that world's most familiar features, the Great Red Spot.

On May 19, we will talk with Thea Kozakis, a graduate student at the Carl Sagan Institute at Cornell University. Ms. Kozakis is a pioneering researcher on how to study the atmospheres of worlds around other stars, looking for signs of life.
