Astronomy Cast takes a fact-based journey through the cosmos as it offers listeners weekly discussions about astronomical topics ranging from planets to cosmology. Hosted by Fraser Cain (Universe Today) and Dr. Pamela L. Gay ( ASP), this show brings the questions of an astronomy lover direct to an astronomer. Together Fraser and Pamela explore what is known and being discovered about the universe.

Improvements at Astronomy Cast are made possible through the generous donations of listeners like you. Your donations will allow us to continue to pay our server bills, will help us attend scientific conferences, and will allow us to hire folks to help keep us organized, edited, and on track for our (mostly) weekly episodes.

Astronomy Cast is produced out of the Planetary Science Institute in collaboration with Universe Today.
