This week on Astronomy News with The Cosmic Companion, Dr. Tara Murphy from the University of Sydney joins us, looking at an odd radio burst seen near the center of the Milky Way galaxy.
We will also look at a possible discovery of a planet in another galaxy, and examine a massive solar flare that barely missed Earth over the weekend. Finally, we will head out to Jupiter, where NASA's Juno spacecraft made some intriguing new findings, before welcoming our special guest.
(And, check out our new fancy-schmancy scrolling credits at the end! Eh? Eh?)
