Episode 40 sees us revisiting volcanology and some fun with explosives as a New York professor uses explosives to recreate the eruptive effect of maars – low profile volcanoes, the remnants of which can be seen across Auckland’s volcanic field.
We check in with Vicki Hyde, the founder and stalwart of the NZ Skeptics Society who outlines what attendees at the Society’s conference in Dunedin at the end of the month can expect. We also hear from one of the researchers behind a cancer drug that turned out to be effective as a male contraceptive.
Also – a new segment – best science site of the week – this week… not a site but a Facebook page – I Fucking Love Science!
