ABOVE AND BEYOND...

“Above and Beyond…” is a 90 second “shortcast” that brings the universe to you. Aired on WJCT every Friday and Sunday during the nationally syndicated radio programs Science Friday and Radio Lab, “Above and Beyond…” is the product of a partnership between the Bryan-Gooding Planetarium at MOSH and “The Science Of…,” a video and radio production unit from out of Jacksonville University. Find “The Science Of…” linked below.

“Above and Beyond…” topics range from those that can be observed with your own eyes in the night sky over Northeast Florida, to the most distant cosmic objects observed by the most sophisticated telescopes ever built anywhere. Many (but not all) of the concepts brought to life in “Above and Beyond…” are about objects or events specific to a one-time cosmic event or a particular time of year. All of them are produced to be fun and add to a wider understanding of the universe we inhabit. Please browse through the “Above and Beyond…” archives here to binge on the cosmos, 90 seconds at a time.
