We're also going to hear from Dr. Tara Murphy of the University of Sydney about her recent discovery of strange radio signals coming from near the center of the Milky Way.

In addition, we learn of a solar system that looks much like our own family of planets will in the distant future, following the death of our Sun. Plus, we look in on those odd radio signals from near the center of our galaxy, and get a sneak preview of our upcoming conversation with Dr. Murphy.
