Bonjour my friends, my enemies, and everything on the scale inside or outside that system of measurement. I’m Nuke, as Marie said at the beginning of this show, and I’m here to host Virgo A, a supergiant elliptical galaxy in the constellation Virgo. One of the most massive galaxies in the local universe, it is notable for its large population of globular clusters—M87 contains about 12,000 compared to the 150–200 orbiting the Milky Way—and its jet of energetic plasma that originates at the core and extends outward at least 1,500 parsecs (4,900 light-years), travelling at relativistic speed. It is one of the brightest radio sources in the sky, and is a popular target for both amateur astronomy observations and professional astronomy study.
Also worthy of study are our stories, and you’ll have two delivered to your audio receptors today, along with part 3 of our panel discussion about Men and Monsters, which really ought to be humans and monsters.
