OTN Ep #004: Two Pairs

In this podcast, we share two pairs of reports.  In each pair, the topic is somewhat the same – reflected in the title.  But to the astronomer’s way of thinking, the objects are enormously different.  First, we look at a pair of “X-ray re-brightenings”, one of a B-type emission star, another of an accreting millisecond X-ray pulsar.  And then we look at two spectroscopic classifications of supernovae — one of SN 2018aql as a yount type IIP supernova, the other of SN2018aqm as a type Ia Supernova.

After the show, we invite you to examine the results even further at our website, and join the discussion online at Twitter using #OutThereNow.
