Today’s Space, Astronomy, and Science News Podcast Astronomy Daily the Podcast - Episode May 15, 2023 European spacecraft, Jupiter IC moons explorer (JUICE), successfully freed a 16-meter radar antenna, which had been jammed for a month, and will use it to investigate Jupiter's moons Callisto, Europa, and Ganymede. NASA's Lunar Flashlight mission, which aimed to hunt for ice in the lunar south pole, failed to reach its intended orbit and is now orbiting the sun. Russian cosmonauts successfully completed a five-hour and 14-minute spacewalk outside the International Space Station to activate a radiator and conduct other maintenance activities. Astronomers have captured images of a star named ZTF SLRN 2020 consuming one of its planets, causing the star to brighten 100 times its normal level. This confirmed the long-standing assumption that stars swallow their planets, and the process has been illuminated. Steve Dunkley and digital assistant Hallie also briefly discuss the Hollywood movie Red Planet and its portrayal of space janitors. Steve returns after recovering from COVID-19.
