Weekly Space Hangout – May 5, 2017: Mathew Anderson’s “Our Cosmic Story,” Updated!

Host: Fraser Cain (@fcain)

Special Guest:
The WSH again welcomes Mathew Anderson, author of “Our Cosmic Story,” to the show. You may recall that Mathew joined us last fall just prior to the release of “Our Cosmic Story,” and he was kind enough to offer our viewers free electronic copies just for the asking. Since then, Mathew has expanded the last chapter of his book to include additional information about SETI, and with the recent exoplanet discoveries, many of the other chapters are of even greater relevance. We are pleased to announce that, in conjunction with his return visit, Mathew will again be offering for a limited time free electronic copies of his complete book as well as his standalone update. Complete information about how to get your copies will be available on the WSH webpage beginning 12:00 NOON on Friday, May 5, 2017 – just visit http://www.wsh-crew.net/cosmicstory for all the details.

We use a tool called Trello to submit and vote on stories we would like to see covered each week, and then Fraser will be selecting the stories from there. Here is the link to the Trello WSH page (http://bit.ly/WSHVote), which you can see without logging in. If you’d like to vote, just create a login and help us decide what to cover!

Announcements:
On Friday, May 12, the WSH will welcome authors Michael Summers and James Trefil to the show to discuss their new book, Exoplanets: Diamond Worlds, Super Earths, Pulsar Planets and the New Search for Life Beyond Our Solar System. In anticipation of their appearance, the WSH Crew is pleased to offer our viewers a chance to win one of two hard cover copies of Exoplanets. Two winners will be drawn live by @fraser during our show on May 12th. To enter for a chance to win a copy of Exoplanets, send an email to: giveaways@wshcrew.space with the Subject: Exoplanets. Be sure to include your name and email address in the body of your message so that we can contact the winners afterward.
