20 January, 2016 – Episode 550 – This Week in Science Podcast (TWIS)

Fri, 22 Jan 2016 08:47:36 +0000

CRISPR Alert, Planet 9?, Memory Boost, Falcon Meal Plans, Ant Architecture, Squirrel Appreciation, Algae Brain Damage, 2015 Wuz Hot!, Snake Deodorant, Dissolvable Implant, And Much More! Take our audience survey!!! Disclaimer, disclaimer, disclaimer! The stories on tonight's show came from... the INTERNET! But how did they get there??? 15 years ago, if I needed to research squirrels, I would have to go to the library, or reference my wall of encyclopedias, or perhaps, I could pop in my Britannica CD-ROM. What's a CD-ROM, you ask? What's Encyclopedia Britannica? Don't ask me, go find the wiki! I can say that today, because on January 15, 2001, Wikipedia was founded. Some may say it is not always accurate, others may say it needs a governing body to approve edits. Yet more may claim it has made our brains weak and lazy. But I say a crowd-sourced, publicly funded, free encyclopedia at the tip of our fingertips is a great thing. It means that if I use a word, or reference an animal, that you don't know, you can look it up, join the conversation, and get informed. It means that all it takes is an internet connection to have access to a wealth of information. It means that the playing field is just a bit more level for all of us seeking knowledge. It means that a science podcast and their Doctor in charge are a citable organization with a record on file. And it means that you don't have to be paying into some conglomerate's pocket to get out the truth. Sure, that also means that silly things sometimes make their way onto the web, but enough Wikipedians are on the case to correct errors or spoofs. That being said, please, please, please don't cite wikipedia in your essay for school, and we in return, will make sure our stories are the real deal, too. And we'll be looking back at you for all of eternity, from the wiki page titled... This Week in Science... coming up next! CRISPR Alert It's CRISPR's history making news this week. Eric Lander of MIT published a history of the gene-editing system, which while a fabulous tale of the efforts of scientists from around the world also appears to have some glaring bias. Namely, to highlight the work of MIT and the Broad Institute who are vying for patent rights. Planet 9? Astronomers from Cal Tech say they have found a 9th planet. They haven't seen it yet, but measurements suggest that it's some 20 to 100 billion milles out there. Memory Boost Turns out our brains might be capable of more than a petabyte of memory storage. Are falcons keeping small birds hostage for a later meal? We're not sure. Anecdotal evidence reports birds that have been plucked and crippled, trapped in crevaces, and this may have all been done by a falcon to keep their future meal "fresh." If so, wow... Brutal...
