This week, we use some sticky fish as inspiration for building robots, we plumb the history of ancient Rome, and mutant pigs may bring us a future of xenotransplantation.
This week, we spy on ever elusive neutrinos, Legionella plays Arkanoid with our mitochondria, and we get lost in RAN-translation.
This week, we get caught up in plasma vortexes that form in the wake of atomic collisions, we break open molecular ladders to transform materials, and we identify immune system cells that mean well, but usually end up doing more harm than good. We also discuss the ending of Battlestar Galactica so once you hear word of cylons, skip ahead a bit to avoid getting spoiled. Apologies!
