How do bees make their own vaccines? How do you milk a jellyfish? Why would you even bother? We push the envelope of biology and medicine by learning from animals across the world.
Can cows be the power source of the future? What can we do to make our 'waste' more efficient? Plus one neat trick to make a new type of magnets out of non magnetic materials.
Can evolution go backwards? Fish are leading the way in adaptation to changing climates, overfishing and warming. Find out about how fish stay cool in the reefs, and the size shifting fish of the great lakes.
How do you explain difficult scientific ideas? Is it okay to simplify or 'dumb it down'? We talk about Feynman, 'Domains of Utility' in science education. We also discuss the challenges of building massive physics experimental machines on earth and in space!
What are the biggest challenges in astrophysics? Could we one day know all there is to know about physics or is that a philosophical misstep? How do you even get into researching these big questions? Find out all this and more in Part 2 of our Casual Science Cafe series.
