Summary
"People have been dreaming of setting foot on Mars for centuries, and NASA has been given the go-ahead to plan for such an expedition. Getting there and back will take years and astronauts will have to ?live off the land? on the red planet. They?ll grow their own food, make oxygen from the carbon dioxide in the Martian atmosphere and even manufacture fuel for their return trip to Earth. Yet, despite all these challenges, there could be a human presence on Mars within 20 to 30 years. -- We?re running out of oil and the challenge that faces us is not only to find a replacement, but to find one that will not contribute greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. Car manufacturers around the world are investing heavily in several fuel alternatives ? and one of the most attractive is Hydrogen. Dr. Paul Willis examines the many obstacles now being negotiated by Australian scientists keen to drive us into a Hydrogen fuelled future. -- Astronomer, Professor Fred Watson is in charge of the Anglo-Australian Observatory in Coonabarabran. His passion for astronomy is infectious. Whether he?s chatting on the radio, in the pub, or to school children, when Fred shares his thoughts about what can be seen through a telescope, it?s hard not to become star struck yourself. -- Have you ever worried about being taken over by aliens? Well, as Dr Jonica Newby reports this week, it may be more imminent than you think. Scientists have uncovered the remarkable story of a parasite that can take over a rat?s brain, making it lose all fear of its mortal enemy - the cat. And with 50% of Australian humans infected by the same parasite, it makes you wonder ? can it do the same in us? Are we subject to alien mind control?" -- edited from website
