Brendan Drachler, an astrophysics PhD student from the Rochester Institute of Technology, joins me to discuss a number of space related topics. Brendan goes over the significance or the recent detection of a F.R.B (Fast Radio Burst) & the detection of its origin, some 3.6 billion light years away. Just what are F.R.B’s? Are they signs of advanced alien civilizations? We get into all of that and more!
We also share a laugh & joke that the comments on previous shows we have done together tend to accuse us of being shills for NASA. On the subject of NASA, we get into the new missions including Dragonfly, a quadcopter drone that will be sent Titan!
Towards the end of the show, and after a whole host of science related topics that i havent mentioned here, i ask Brendan about his take on Area 51 whistleblower, Bob Lazar.
