Receding horizons

Podcast by STARS

About the podcast

Welcome to Receding Horizons, a podcast for exploring topics in astronomy and space science, and sharing them with the people in our local community and the rest of the world.Since antiquity, humans have gazed at the night sky, attempting to decipher its mysteries, and find our place within it. As astronomer Edwin Hubble once remarked, “The history of astronomy is a history of receding horizons.” Our podcast will attempt to answer some of the biggest questions from the oldest of sciences – astronomy.

The mission of this podcast is to explore topics of astronomy and space exploration, and share them with the community of Brownsville, Texas. Our valley is entering into the next phase of human space exploration, and participating in the new era of gravitational wave and multi-messenger astronomy. We are providing a forum of discussion and activity among people of all ages and expertise, to bring awareness about our role in the next era of space exploration, and to involve as many people as we can in expanding our receding horizons.
