There has and always will be an example of perfection in our world – called nature. This is why so much energy has been expended by those with power to separate living men and women from nature. This is done with time, food and knowledge and, of course, the Skyclock. If you learn a thing in nature you understand certainly, it is a true thing. The n…
 
Bacteria are all around us, and inside us. Some of these of these are fine, even good, but others are pathogens and cause disease. How do they evolve and how are we learning to cope with them through new research. And are we in danger of a new age of antibiotic resistance? Robin Ince is joined by three experts in the field. Dr Siouxsie Wiles is a m…

We speak many words each day but most of us were never taught the actual (in use now) meaning of them. Many of the things we say mean the exact opposite of what we have intended to say. Until an effort is made to re-learn that words have meaning, being treated as lost at sea in the public realm will continue. It is possible to hold your position as…

Instantly memorizing what you need to know is the ultimate dream for many people. But for many, their inability to remember anything is the ultimate nightmare.

So there's a big rumour going around that some scientists may have potentially detected a hint of evidence for phosphine gas on Venus, which they consider to be quite strong evidence of something unexplained, which may be an indicator of microbial life in Venus' atmosphere.

When we think of biodiversity and evolution, the tropical regions of our planet are frequently touted as hotspots for speciation. Indeed, the tropics house more species than most other regions, however, that doesn't mean that temperate areas haven't contributed to the diversity of life on this planet. Recent work has revealed that one of the larges…

Of all the things we have lost in our precipitous fall from the 1800s, our perception of the Sun may represent best where we have come to exist.

We have …

If astrobiologists find life beyond Earth in the solar system, it will most likely be in the form of tiny organisms called microbes – nothing that would talk to us. But the galaxy is a big place; the universe even bigger. Somewhere out there, life may have evolved to become as smart, or even much smarter, than us. And the next step in that ladder m…
