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.
A Real-Life Dragon? - There's another new Australian dinosaur, but this one could have been a real-life dragon. Lindsay and Lino discuss the newly discovered pterosaur that was basically a terrifying flying shark. Plus the new Netflix documentary on SpaceX's first all-civilian spaceflight. The Spiny Leaf Insect - It's lockdown again and Caroline has gone bug crazy. Lindsay and Lino discuss with Caroline her new obsession with interesting mail-order insects, including the fascinating Australian walking stick, also called the Spiny Leaf Insect. What Makes An Astronaut? - What is the definition of astronaut? Who gets to call themselves by that name? Caroline, Lindsay, and Lino discuss whether simply going into space is enough to earn the title of astronaut and whether the title and definition make a difference as we head into an era in which space travel will open up to everyone. Asteroid for Aboriginal Elder - For the first time, an asteroid has been named for Aboriginal elder Uncle Ghillar Michael Anderson because of his efforts at connecting modern astronomy with ancient understandings of the sky. Plus Caroline and Lindsay discuss the billionaire space race. Cooper the Dinosaur - There's a new largest dinosaur in Australia called Cooper. Caroline Knight and Lindsay Sant tell us about this new species, how it came to be found and what it takes to determine if found bones are a new kind of animal. Plus a little bit about our neighbor Venus.
