Today we start off with a quick take
on everyone's favorite fading star, Betelguese. This red giant is
fading away right before the eyes of anyone with clear skies, and
we don't know why, and many hope it might be gearing up to explode
(but it probably isn't). Join us as we discuss what we do and don't
know about this system. We also take a quick look at new ways to
study 3-body systems with statistics, and new research that use
stats to show that our solar system is likely ripe with alien small
objects, like comets and asteroids.
