TOSP Episode 9: November 7th 2011

[Original post on the Sciblogs The Official Sciblogs Podcast site]

Greetings, dear listeners!

This week, aimee was joined once again by Chelfyn Baxter, co-host of the g33k show, to talk through some of the science stories of the last week.  They included using lasers to rip the universe a new one, Boeing building spacecraft, the weight of the internet, alternate living, radiation-cleaning Aussie nanofibres, asteroids, and some very interesting Sciblogs articles.

We apologise (once again, sigh) for the slight oddness in the sound on this one.  We’re using a new venue, and it’s coming with surprises!  As always, please do feel free to comment/contact us - feedback helps us improve :)
