Podcast: 19 May 2013

On today’s show Sila and Tom welcomed back Simon Salinas, to see what’s new in science…
Sila discussed a breakthrough in stem-cell technology: the ability to clone stem cells from skin cells, which usefully sidesteps many of the ethical concerns holding back stem cell technology. She also brought up the current (and in our opinion, unfortunate) trend for bottled water in the western world. Tom shared a new study, which has shed new light on the original colonisation of Australia 70,000 years ago, and current advances in intelligent cars, coming to a road near you.Simon talks about anechoic chambers, the most silent room in the world (which may or may not make people go insane)…
Plus texts, talk and general shenanigans. Check out the link below!

Tune in for more at the same time next week! 3pm Sundays on 90.7 SYN FM.
