Summary
Research conducted here at the CSIRO in New England not only suggests that sheep are smarter than we previously thought, and that they?ve got better memories, but these are features we can use to better manage them into the future. -- Few would've noticed that stirring their tea leaves would cause them to settle down at the centre of their cup. But according to basic physics, the centrifugal force cause by stirring your tea should for the leaves to the edges of the cup - So how do we explain this? Well, it took the brilliant mind of Albert Einstein to propose a theory which has led to the development of technology for a new medical test kit which could revolutionise blood testing. -- The social nightmare facing people with a condition known as prosopagnosia - also known as face blindness. And while we used to think it was rare, astonishing new research has revealed it's far more common than anyone realised. In fact, it runs in families, and up to one in 50 people have symptoms - that means one in 50 children may have hitherto unrecognised problems with face blindness. -- As a senior post-doctoral fellow at CSIRO Australia Telescope National Facility Naomi discovered a new spiral arm of the Milky Way and now astronomers are redrawing the map of the galaxy. For her research efforts, Naomi was awarded the 2006 Malcolm McIntosh Prize for Physical Scientist and is recognised as an international expert on the Milky Way. --website
