This week, Nicole continues the conversation on curing cancer, but this time, with NANO-ROBOTS. Derrick tells us about nasty parasites that are pitted against each other. And Abhijit throws it back to some retro physics that is very much back in style.
Join Lisl, Trisha, and Ted to learn all about menstruation in model(organism)s, how to name a new element, and how to cure multiple sclerosis by deleting the immune system.
Diego, Lisl, Emily, and Ted discuss one of the biggest story from last week: the discovery of Einstein’s gravitational waves (4:42)! Join our hosts as they discuss what are these waves, what do they sound like, and why they are like bouncing on a trampoline. Then, Lisl shares how the parasite toxoplasma can inflict chimps (20:52) and Emily gets excited about cancer in naked mole rats (24:30).
