Really interesting show! Loved the gibbon-song, but the earthquakes were worrying...
 
SoT 116: The Baby Disease
http://scienceontop.com/116

In a town with no previously recorded earthquakes, more than a hundred were recorded in one year. It's thought they were triggered by the disposal of waste water from fracking.

A new world record has been set for the smallest sequenced genome, and it belongs to a symbiotic bacteria living in leafhoppers.

Mother gibbons teach their daughters to sing, using a kind of 'baby talk'.

An ancient 'bog body' has been found with the skin intact. The body may be that of a king, killed in a ritual sacrifice. Because axes.

'Chronic excreters' could be the big obstacle preventing the global eradication of Polio.

A scientist jokes about a testicle-eating fish, cable news anchors panic. And giggle.

Will be heaps of fun! Melbourne people grab a ticket!
 
Dr. Evans is "a warrior for science" - Australasian Science

In our technology-based society, what's the state of Australian science? What environment do researchers find themselves in, and where are we going? The future of Australian science is too important to be left to chance, so where is the long-term strategic vision for the future of science and research?

Respected malaria researcher Dr. Krystal Evans will be investigating these questions and more at the Science on Top Live event on Saturday 31st of May 2014 at the State Library of Victoria.

Dr. Evans has long been a campaigner for a more innovative and scientifically-minded Australia. In 2011, she was instrumental in the Discoveries Need Dollars campaign which was formed in response to rumoured medical research funding cuts. She is the Chair of the Australian Early- and Mid-Career Researcher Forum, which examines career structure, job security, funding, education, training and gender equity for Australian scientists.

After Dr. Evans' presentation, the popular Science on Top podcast will take the stage to record their 150th episode. SoT is a fun panel show looking at the latest discoveries and research from around the world. They'll be joined by planetary scientist from the Australian Nuclear Technology Organisation, Dr. Helen Maynard-Casely for what should be a fun and informative show.

The show will be hosted by comedian, scientist and science communicator Cobi Smith.

SoT 115: Ozzie-Nauts
http://scienceontop.com/115

Mighty Maggots v Flesh Nom Bugs was a Pozible campaign that raised $9,970 for a trial. The trial aims to assess the ability of maggots to improve the rate of healing for people with Bairnsdale Ulcer lesions.

A new malaria vaccine has a 100% success rate in a small study. While promising, there are a lot of obstacles that need to be dealt with before this could be a viable Real World treatment.

The Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) has admitted that radioactive water has been leaking from the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant into the Pacific Ocean.

A material inspired by the cactus plant cleans tiny particles of oil from water.

100,000 adventurous people have signed up for a one-way trip to Mars. But did they read the timeline before signing on the dotted line?

Twilight at my hotel this evening. I could see the Moon and Venus quite clearly, but I had no idea Mercury was there until I looked at the star chart.

Introduction
Host of Science On Top, a weekly science news podcast. Atheist, skeptic, geek, sci-fi buff. Intrigued/frustrated by politics & journalism.

Science on Top
Having noticed a lack of real science news in the mainstream media, two of my friends and I decided to do our own podcast discussing the important discoveries, theories and experiments not being covered elsewhere. Each week, we take a look at the science news that often slips under the radar.
Science On Top is our attempt to shed light on the extraordinary work being done in the name of science, and discuss the world of science in general.
