For Science is a fortnightly discussion programme where I'm joined by Dr Maia Sauren and Chemist and Metallurgist Magdeline Lum to talk about the science stories of the previous couple of weeks and see how the relate to the "Real World".
The next episode of Purser Explores The World, Communicating Science is now available:
It's National Science Week in Australia so I thought I would have a chat with some communicators of science.
Today I watched the culmination of years of hard work by a dedicated team of scientists, engineers, designers, technicians and everyone in between. After a 36 week trip through space, the newest addition to the NASA Martian Rover Force, Curiosity, landed exactly where they aimed it, at almost exactly the time they said it would land (they were a minute out).
I cannot put into words how freaking awesome that was.
Consider what they've managed to do.
