This week’s show is an eclectic mix, taking you from the Swiss lab of cancer researcher Dr Chris Rodley to the Endeavour Crater on Mars where a robotic vehicle has identified evidence of water having existed there in the past.
In between, we talk innovation with Sciblogger Peter Kerr and bring you the best of the week’s published journal papers in the Journal Wrap.
Presented by Sciblogs editor Peter Griffin and produced by John Kerr
