New research published in August 2019 indicates the Milky Way is actually more S-shaped than disk-shaped.

This week on UnDisciplined, we're talking about the shape of the Milky Way Galaxy, life on the Moon, a poorly-timed tweet, and the potential impact of artificial intelligence on Hollywood. That's right, it's time for the monthly science news roundup! 

Joining us this month are a few familiar voices: Julie Kiefer, the associate director of science communication for the University of Utah Health Sciences; Joseph Wilson, one of our favorite entomological ecologists from Utah State University; and Danielle Lemmon, University of Colorado doctoral candidate who studies the diversity of climate events worldwide.
