Join me as I learn about the world of Astrophysics. My name is Vikram Bhamre and I am 18 years old. On my podcast, Exploring Astrophysics, I chat with some of the most incredible astrophysicists around the world on the most interesting questions left unanswered in astrophysics. What's amazing is how helpful and forthcoming they all are and I hope you too are inspired when you listen to them.

Dr Romer shared some of her most exciting and coolest experiences as an astrophysicist, including a trip to the south pole! She also mentioned how in the past astronomers would have to travel to the obersevations sites in places like Chile to take the images, rather than having it all automated from your office. Dr Romer spoke about the recent Jame…

In December 2007, NASA announced the discovery of a violent event in which a galaxy was smiting another galaxy with a blast of energy emanating from the vicinity of a Supermassive black hole at the center of one of these two galaxies. This event took place in a system called 3C321, which lies 1.4 billion light years away from us in the constellatio…

In this episode, Sven spoke to me about his work in gravitational lensing, and more specifically, a novel statistical analysis method he is developing. He also spoke about how he transitioned to astrophysics from studying math, as well as how his analysis technique could prove incredibly useful in learning more about the matter distribution in our …

A black hole is a place in space where gravity pulls so much that not even light cannot escape. The escape velocity for such an object is more than the speed of light and according to Albert Einstein's theory of relativity, nothing can travel faster than the speed of light. So, it's impossible to escape from such a dense object. Listen What If Our …

In this episode, Marcus spoke to me about his current PHD work as well as his interest in cosmology. He explained a little about Astrochemistry and the research he is doing related to it. Lastly, he spoke about the process of getting a PHD and the final outcome required for completion.Bởi Vikram Bhamre

Dr Jeffery goes into detail about how dark energy and dark matter, two things he is researching extensively, are elusive and that astrophysicists know very little about it. The Dark Energy Survey is a project which he is part of that tries to map the distribution of dark energy in our universe. Dr Jeffrey also spoke about machine learning in the co…

This episode I spoke to Dr Doel about some of the projects he has been working on. He told me about the considerations that need to be accounted for when retrofitting telescopes as well as how he entered this field. Dr Doel also described how he thought the field have changed in the past to what it is now.…
