Join Jesse and Sophie as they talk about cannibalistic caterpillars, ugly fruit and veg turned into snacks, Croque MonScience, and Sampling the Abyss.
Looking at the radio emissions from distant quasars, which appear to twinkle, researchers from Many Astrophyics have found what they think might be the answer: hairy stars.
We’re looking at ugly fruit and veg to turn into nutritious snacks to slow food wastage, return to farmers, and make Australia healthier.
For centuries, medicine has looked to nature for cures and treatments. Here are our top five picks for medicines derived from nature.
Podcast Episode 9, Jesse and Sophie chat about how it is that we’re able to remember (tens of) thousands of faces with relative ease, our new algorithm that can model blood vessel growth to pre-empt tumours, the ancient origins of Homo sapiens (100 000 years older than expected), and, they speak with Robert Whyte, co-author of A Field Guide to Spiders of Australia.
Interronauts is our podcast that puts a rose-tinted magnifying glass to science news from around the world, Australia, and inside our organisation. Hosted by Jesse Hawley and Sophie Schmidt from our communications team.
Field Guide to Spiders of Australia brings you the most comprehensive spider guide to date, with over 1300 images, species never before photographed, and new families only just discovered. It’s a one stop shop to satisfy all your arachnocuriosity.
Despite our sometimes heated national debate about our energy future, Australia is well positioned to benefit from innovative low emission technologies. No matter which avenue we take to cleaner energy, our energy-rich resources means there are opportunities for Australian businesses – and cheaper energy for Australian consumers. That’s the conclusion we reached in our Low Emissions
Our new algorithm maps new blood vessel growth with more fidelity to quickly zero in on early-stage cancers.
