“Cutting Edge” (March 15, 2014)
On this episode of A Science Story, we’re doing something a little bit different. We are 100% live: no sound effects, no prerecording. Just wall-to-wall science.
We are also joined by a new team member: Maria Vicente is a biology student at La Trobe University, and she lends her expertise to this week’s discussion. Today we are riding the wave of scientific progress, discussing inventions and discoveries at the cutting edge of the profession: cyborg cockroaches, human chimeras, satellite-blasting lasers, and a material that is ridiculously thin and yet ridiculously strong.
