Abstract

In this episode, Chris Gaiser (professor of biology at Linfield College) and Mike Crosser (professor of physics at Linfield College) discuss the tidal forces and give several examples of where these show up through the solar system. Learn about why Earth has tides, why there is a Dark Side of the Moon, why a moon around Jupiter still erupts, why Pluto and its moon, Charon, always face each other, and a fun way that a black hole can kill you that you haven't thought about.
