Summary
"Ningaloo reef off the coast of Western Australia is the best place in the world to see the world?s largest fish, the whale shark. And interactions between tourists and the whale shark may be the key to their survival in more ways than one.. -- Could there be a better way of monitoring and prediction earthquakes, one that works in real-time? Catalyst investigates the very latest in earthquake prediction technology - Smart Dust nanotechnology - a network of micro devices that may one day form a very powerful early warning disaster system. -- Between 1957 and 1959, nine hydrogen bombs were detonated in the Pacific. Two New Zealand navy frigates were there observing and on board, with backs to the blast, were more than 500 kiwi sailors. Some of them were just 20 nautical miles from Ground Zero. When you realise just how close some of these young men came to clouds of ionising radiation, it?s hard not to imagine some of them had their health affected. Yet to date, the science has been inconclusive, even dismissive. But a recent study has given these sailors some hope. Catalyst travels to New Zealand to look into the science behind the study and ponders whether the waves created by this new data will reach the other side of the Tasman.-- The brain is one of the last frontiers of the human body. Two researchers, Charles Watson and George Paxinos are like early explorers, creating some of the most detailed maps of the brains ever known. Their work will help researchers better navigate their way around the brains of chickens, rats, mice and even the human brain stem. Over nearly thirty years, the pair has also formed a strong friendship that has been the backbone of their working success". -- website
