We live in a universe of wonders. Every day, scientists are inching toward breakthroughs which can change our lives. Caroline Knight, Lindsay Sant, and Lino Saubolle are playing their small part in sharing these wonders with you, from a distinctly Catholic perspective. So, Let’s Science!
And for more from Caroline, Lindsay, and Lino on a variety of topics from an Australian Catholic perspective, check out their other show, The Catholics of Oz.
Big Bang Alternatives - Before the Big Bang Theory was widely accepted, there were many theories to explain how the universe began. Lindsay Sant and Lino Saubolle discuss five alternative theories that were advanced prior to the currently accepted theory and why they all ultimately failed to explain the universe's origins. Webb Telescope and Redshift - We revisit the historic new James Webb Space Telescope and its first amazing discoveries and then Caroline explains to Lindsay and Lino some astronomical terms like redshift. Bring Back the Tassie Tiger - The Thylacine, aka the Tasmanian Tiger or Tassie Tiger, is extinct, but as Caroline tells Lindsay and Lino, scientists now think it may be possible to bring them back. How is that possible? Will they still be the same animal? And is it moral and ethical to do so even if we can? Dinosaur Sniffles - Even dinosaurs got sniffles! Caroline tells Lindsay and Lino about a new discovery that shows that some sauropods show evidence of having had respiratory infections. Then Lindsay discusses an exploration of how close we could be to building a real USS Enterprise starship. COVID Antibodies Improve Over Time - Getting better all the time! Caroline explains to Lindsay and Lino how the quality of antibodies from COVID-19 vaccines improve over time, what antibodies are, and what they do in us. Plus an update on a recent story about a rocket crashing into the Moon.
