Science ABLIB: Cucumber poo, drones and beating hearts – Mornings
The latest episode of Science ABLIB reveals how much poo a sea cucumber does in one year (and why on Earth that’s of use to scientists)!
With the huge public uptake of drones, researchers trying to improve the Great Barrier Reef want all drone pilots to get involved with a citizen science project that could really make a difference. That means you!
And if you love learning about things that could kill you (and who doesn’t), your hero this week is Dr Ann Jones, host of the ABC’s Catalyst television program (now available on iView). Dr Jones explored the venom of spiders, snakes and jellyfish and how that same venom can be used to help save human lives. Dr Jones shares the truth about what it’s like to be in an operating theatre watch a heart transplant – and how spider venom can actually help in there!
