In our Fifteenth-est episode yet, Josh, Addie and Tracy discuss the discovery of a new kind of supernova where the star is not completely destroyed, potentially leaving behind a “Zombie Star” remnant. In addition to supernovas and zombie stars, hear an update on the Rosetta mission’s arrival at comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, and Insane Clown Posse’s anti-science song.

And seriously, check out these pics of the comet from Rosetta:
An irreverent and informative tour of the latest, greatest and most interesting discoveries in astronomy.
