BoP just pointed out an inaccuracy in our most recent episode! Is BoP a secret professional astronomer? No. But, still, he was right about this error!
In our discussion of supernovae, Kit mentioned runaway nuclear fission... except, she should have said runaway nuclear fusion!
You can learn more about the difference between the two here: https://www.energy.gov/ne/articles/fission-and-fusion-what-difference and more about runaway fusion in supernovae here: https://imagine.gsfc.nasa.gov/science/objects/supernovae2.html.
We'll keep doing our best to keep the pod accurate (and to correct ourselves when we don't get it right).
As always, thank you for listening!
