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.
Red Planet Road Trip - Space bucket list! Lindsay Sant and Lino Saubolle discuss 8 tourist destinations that any future tourist on Mars will want to visit, from the obvious (Olympus Mons) to the weird and mysterious (Medusae Fossae). The Milky Way Supermassive Black Hole - Telescopes have now given us our first image of the supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy. Caroline Knight tells us how we discovered there was a black hole there and the amazing story of how this incredible image was made. 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?
