This week, Nora shares new insights about sight based on how flies smell, Abhijit connects fundamental physics to the Pyramids, and Emily uses science to justify your video game obsession.
This week, Chelsea shares why electrons might be slow to escape their parent atoms, Nicole describes a next step towards building life in the lab, and Marina answers listener mail on metascience.
To celebrate our 200th episode, Derrick, Nicole, and Chelsea take us inside the Third Annual Stanford Microbiome Summit.
This week, Natalie explains why we should fear an ancient otter, Derrick shares first steps towards liquid metal robots, and Chelsea answers some listener mail about quantum computing in the workplace.
This week, Derrick, Marina, and Abhijit cover electron microscopy that’s so cool it’s worth a Nobel Prize and point out some gaps in our understanding of fluid dynamics in space. Plus, Nicole F makes her hosting debut with a segment on using the blockchain in healthcare.
Join Emily, Derrick, and Chelsea for an electric episode on superconductors and lightning. Plus, a description of the research behind this year’s Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine.
Nicole MCs a live night of science fun and games on the Stanford Campus. Chelsea talks quantum simulation, Derrick enlightens us about lightning, and Nora talks about crispy butterfries? No wait, that was CRISPR’d butterflies. Thanks to all our Bay Area friends who came out!
