Join Christina and AUT Professor Allan Blackman for your weekly fix of Dear Science! This week, Allan and Christina discussed the imperial system vs the metric system (and got a bit carried away!). They also discussed a super reactive chemical in the atmosphere that could alter how we do climate modelling, and a silk tag that could tell you whether your medications are safe or dodgy.
This week on Dear Science, Christina was joined live in studio by AUT professor Marcus Jones. They discussed gun violence research in the United States, questions surrounding monkeypox, and why the science behind why yawning is contagious.
