NSF's Science360 Super Science Show

Co-editors of NSF’s Science360 News Service, Charlie Heck and Jordan D'Eri, bring you a weekly, well almost weekly, recap of some of the top NSF-funded news stories.

Read between the lines

It's Brain Awareness Week! Researchers at the University of California, Davis, have come up with a way to observe brain activity during natural reading. This marks the first time researchers have been able to study the brain while reading actual texts, instead of individual words.

It's a twister--of data!

In episode 75, Charlie and Jordan talk about visualizations developed by Amy McGovern at the University of Oklahoma, that may reduce the false alarm rate for tornado prediction.

Nuclear CSI

In episode 73, Jordan and Charlie investigate a new procedure for identifying individuals exposed to uranium within the past year. Scientists and homeland security experts believe these procedures could identify individuals who may be smuggling nuclear materials for criminal purposes.

Turn your eyes to the skies for the latest explorers

In episode 68, Charlie and Jordan head outdoors to show how National Science Foundation-supported researchers are finding new ways to use small, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)--also known as drones--to gather data, improve communication and explore environments where humans and larger aircraft dare not go.
