In episode 74, Jordan and Charlie investigate interscatter communications, a new way of wireless communications developed by researchers at the University of Washington.
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.
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.
In this editors' pick video for the Best Of the National Science Foundation's Science360 2016, Charlie and Jordan explore the biggest news story of our century so far: the detection of gravitational waves.
In episode 72, Jordan and Charlie explore the first ever comprehensive count of Weddell seals in Antarctica: a citizen science program called Satellites Over Seals.
In episode 71, Charlie and Jordan discuss an easily assembled smartphone microscope called the LudusScope, that provides new ways of interacting with and learning about common microbes. The open-source device could be used by teachers or in other educational settings.
In episode 70, Jordan and Charlie discuss 3-D printable ink that produces a synthetic bone implant that rapidly induces bone regeneration and growth.
In episode 69, Jordan and Charlie explore a new class of molecules developed by researchers at Harvard University.
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.
In this spooktacular episode, Jordan and Charlie explore the male dark fishing spider's ultimate sacrifice.
In episode 66, Charlie and Jordan talk about a new sensor that could help anesthesiologists better place needles for epidurals and other medical procedures.
In episode 65, Jordan and Charlie explore how a smartphone can hack a 3-D printer by measuring leaked energy and acoustic waves.
In episode 64, Charlie and Jordan explore wearable thermoelectric generators (TEGs) that can efficiently convert body heat to electricity.
In episode 63, Jordan and Charlie discuss the 'blue fire whirl,' a type of fire whirl that could lead to beneficial new approaches for reducing carbon emissions and improving oil spill cleanup.
In episode 62, Charlie and Jordan discuss the "KiloCore," an energy efficient microchip containing 1,000 independent programmable processors.
In episode 61, Jordan sends Charlie on a scavenger hunt for "clues" on how National Science Foundation-funded researchers at Kansas State are studying the way muscle diseases affect humans.
In episode 60, Charlie and Jordan return from summer break to investigate the future of summers. According to NSF-funded research at NCAR, in 50 years, summers across most of the globe could be hotter than any other experienced by people, ever.
In this Super Science Rewind, Charlie and Jordan explore the venomous relationship between rattlesnakes and squirrels and how it helps scientists better understand how these natural enemies have co-evolved.
In this Super Science Rewind, Charlie and Jordan demonstrate how the cells responsible for relaying information from the ear to the brain adapt to noise levels in an environment
In this Super Science Rewind, Charlie and Jordan talk about a molecule that can inhibit an enzyme linked with the onset of stroke.
In this Super Science Rewind, Jordan and Charlie discuss research discovered using new high-resolution microscopy by a team at the University of Pennsylvania. Molecular struts, called microtubules, interact with the heart's contractile machinery to provide mechanical resistance for the beating of the heart.
