In this episode of SpaceTime with Stuart Gary:
  1. Blue Origin selected to build NASA's next lunar lander: NASA has chosen Blue Origin to develop the Blue Moon lander concept, which will transport crews and supplies between lunar orbit and the Moon's surface. This partnership aims to support NASA's Artemis program, which aims to return humans to the Moon.
  2. Searching for black holes near Earth: Astronomers have discovered compelling evidence of a rare type of black hole within Messier 4, the closest globular star cluster to Earth, located approximately 6,000 light-years away. This finding sheds light on the existence of black holes in our cosmic neighborhood.
  3. Confirmation of a vast ancient ocean on Mars: Scientists analyzing data from China's Zhurong Mars rover have provided further confirmation that a massive ocean once covered significant portions of Mars' northern hemisphere lowlands. This discovery contributes to our understanding of Mars' past and its potential for habitability.
  4. The Science Report: Research indicates that deep ocean circulation around Antarctica is slowing down, aligning with predictions made by climate change models. The presence of micro and nano-plastics is now impacting global food safety and security. A study finds no discernible difference in the brain structure of gender-diverse teenagers compared to their cisgender counterparts. A skeptical examination of optical illusions often mistaken as proof of paranormal activity. To listen to this episode and access show links, visit https://spacetimewithstuartgary.com/listen.
