EUSci Podcast #12

It's yet another fun- and fact-filled EUSci podcast for your auditory delight. This week, we talk about lost musical instruments, how optimism can change your perceptions, why birds may not be descended from dinosaurs after all, and much more. Also, guest podcaster Hayden Selvadurai sits down with Mark Blaxter to talk about next generation gene sequencing. So sit back and enjoy our take on the prehistoric bundle of science stories that made the headlines (or at least the science pages) of newspaper over the past couple of weeks.Download LinkWhat's in today's show:HeadlinesCrop-raiding Elephants Avoid Fences Made of BeehivesChimps Do Mental MappingPenguin Poo Visible from Space New Tiny Robots Can Crawl Through Your VeinsHuman Laughter Echoes Chimp ChucklesEarth Gets Billion-Year Life ExtensionMaths Reveals Youngest SupernovaDiamonds Are a Scientists Best Friend?News Roundup and Discussion:Lost Instrument Recreated by SoftwarePeople Who Wear Rose-coloured Glasses See More, Study ShowsHuntington's Protein Has an AccompliceSimon Singh Chiropractic LibelModern Birds May not be Direct Decendents of Dinosaurs After AllFeature:Today, guest podcaster and EUSci magazine editor Hayden Selvadurai interviews Professor Mark Blaxter, director of the Edinburgh GenePool project, on the topic of next generation gene sequencing.EU-What?!We wade into dangerous territory when discussing a study that found that "Men's interest in the opposite sex is little affected by having a sexual partner- unlike women".You can subscribe to the feed for the podcast here, or by using the podcast button on the sidebar.
