E kōrero ana mātou ki a Marcus Jones mō te Ao Putaiao, e pā ana ki ngā whakawhiwhinga me ngā haumātakataka. For Dear Science with AUT's Marcus Jones, we talk about Pulsars and Nobel Prizes, and hurricanes and cyclones.
While Allan is away in Tuscany enjoying sun and wine, we gather in our little studio with Marcus Jones, also professor of Chemistry at AUT, to talk about science.
And today, we cover a tiny air leak that could have proven very dangerous for the International Space Station. We also talk about daylight saving: why? what? and is it really necessary? Finally, we wonder why finding an adequate substitute for salt is so tricky, and discover that MSG might be the answer (!)
On Dear Science today we are talking about how to get near the sun in order to study it, the way that we reveal ourselves in our text messages with a debate about the use of full stops, and a helium anniversary at a time when we should be very aware of its depleting resources.
On Dear Science with AUT's Allan Blackman, we talk about a newly discovered underground lake on Mars, a defrosted 42,000 year-old worm, and how statistics can help us figure out who wrote which Beatles song.
On Dear Science with AUT’s Allan Blackman we talk about sunscreen, and two great female scientists: one is New Zealand astronomer Beatrice Tinsley, a New Zealand academic, who worked on the aging of galaxies, but who’s been sort of forgotten by History…
The other an English Chemist. It's the 98th anniversary of the birth of Rosalind Franklin, who used xray to advance chemistry greatly
Today on Dear Science, AUT's Allan Blackman tells us about "neutrino" (and no one really seems to understand what he is talking about). We also talk about a new method used to bring back to life 130-year-old daguerrotype photographs. Finally, Allan shares this breaking news: the concept of bread is actually much older than we thought.
