Join Emily, Abhijit, and Marina for a discussion of why so many football players suffer from CTE and why NASA is sending a physics lab to space. Plus, a scientist spotlight on 2009 Nobel Laureate in Chemistry, Dr. Ada Yonath.
Hosts Emily, Diego, Kat, and Tyler discuss making drug delivery more awesome, some accidental research on colliding galaxies, and what an impressive feat of spelunking might tell us about human origins.
Dave, Nora, Chelsea and Diego cover how luna moths can outmaneuver their enemies in air-to-air combat, we cover the spread of languages, and why having sex can actually protect against diseases.
On our birthday episode, Chelsea, Diego, Greg, and Dave cover the controversial decision to stop research on “super viruses.” Plus, can bacteria be turned into an electric wire? Do cancer cells just want a Snickers bar? And can Diego ever beat a physicist on the game show?
