Episode 8 - There is dark and cold dust between stars - with Elisabetta Micelotta


Welcome back to The Science Basement Podcast!

This episode takes us to interstellar space! We talk with Elisabetta Micelotta, who is an astrophysicist at the University of Helsinki. She studies interstellar dust, which is solid matter that can be found in the space between stars. Interstellar dust absorbs light from the stars and re-emits it in other wavelengths, and also contributes to stars formation itself!
