Join us on a journey to some of the most inhospitable, humbling, and frighteningly beautiful places in the known universe. Hostile Worlds is a podcast that lets you explore alien landscapes and extra-terrestrial terrain - all from the comfort of your headphones. From the freezing hydrocarbon oceans of Titan, to the scorched, and suffocating wastes of Venus – we’ll take you on an educational and immersive audio tour to all the places you’d die to see… and places you’d die if you saw. You’ll j ...

In this episode, we hear from Raymond Howanski from outside Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He talks about the reasons his district changed the order of their science classes to begin with physics before progressing to chemistry and finally biology. He talks about the additional topics they can cover in a biology course when students already understand…
 
In this conversation with Erica Posthuma, we hear about her experience of going through her first modeling workshop and the "aha" moments that she experienced. Erica talks about how modeling instruction makes chemistry accessible to even students who do not perceive themselves as strong math students. She talks about how modeling instruction units …
 
In this conversation with Brenda Royce, we hear about the things she learned while going through two summer workshops in modeling instruction and then teaching physics and later chemistry using modeling methods. Brenda talks about becoming aware of student misconceptions as well as learning to help students think through the observations they are m…

In the last episode, we left a doomed Sarah, David and Dr. Cellarius as they plunged helplessly into the sun. But their inevitable deaths will not be in vain. We’ll still have some time on this episode to learn about the structure of our main star before they reach the core and get burned to crispy cinders. This is part two of our guest-written epi…
 
Our lives literally revolve around it. That big yellow ball in the sky - The Sun. But what do we really know about El Sol? Is it just a big ball of gas and flame? Or is there more to it than that? On this episode, Sarah and David venture into the Sun's corona, to meet with Dr. Andrea Cellarius. A very bright and flame-boyant scientist. This is the …
 
The Brown Dwarf. Is it a star? Is it a planet? Is it a tabletop war gaming miniature? Is it an obscure Red Dwarf fan fiction series? We need speculate no more, as observational astronomer Dr. Aleks Scholz of St. Andrews Observatory returns to the podcast with a detailed answer for us. We also announce details of our brand new Hostile Worlds merchan…
 
Welcome to Venus, the second planet from the sun and the closest other planet to Earth.

Since leaving Titan last month we’ve been doing a bit of deep space exploration in The Tardigrade. And although space can look a bit… empty, it’s actually as hostile an environment as you’re ever likely to find. Out here we’re totally reliant on some pretty fragile materials and equipment keeping us alive. I’m sure everything will be fine of course…
 
Welcome to Titan, the biggest moon of Saturn, and the only known cosmic body other than Earth, that we know for certain has actual lakes and seas on its surface. But that isn’t the only reason that makes this frozen moon such an interesting and fascinating place. On this episode, our crew leave the comfort and warmth of our ship, The Tardigrade, to…
 
The Tardigrade is on its way to Titan, the biggest moon of Saturn. We're about to break through its hazy orange atmosphere and land on its surface. Our ship won't be the first human-built device to land on Titan though. The Huygens probe made this place its home back in 2005, when it was dropped off here by the Cassini spacecraft. The Cassini-Huyge…
