Science with Sarah Lau

Thursday 9th November / presented by Caitlin Nienaber

Every week we get a dose of the latest in science news with Sarah Lau. On this weeks segment we...

  • Head out into the outer-fringes of the Solar System towards an area called the Kuiper belt- where years ago NASA sent an exploration probe out towards it called New Horizons for research...and now scientists at NASA are getting very excited over one very specific object, and they're calling on the public to help give it a name! (You can vote or register for a name Here)
  • Next we head to Moscow, Russia where 3 men and 3 women have been sealed in an artificial space craft for up to 17 days to simulate a trip to the moon and back.
  • And finishing up we look into an interesting study done by Cambridge University in the UK where research has found that Sheep are able in recognising faces of celebrities through practised techniques of facial recognition. But don't worry-there is a connection that leads from this towards a broader research into neuroscience.
