- The latest developments in health, medicine, environmental issues, space and technology feature in this exciting and thought-provoking package of science stories. This episode discusses the 'Dhimurru Turtle Project' in which coastal communities are sharing knowledge collected over generations with scientists who have access to the latest technologies; a new technology that will enable doctors to test run an operation before going near a scalpel by using a digital clone of the patient who will go under a virtual knife; a new test that can detect if one of two infectious strains of cryptosporidium are present in water; growing evidence that sea levels 4,000 years ago may have been up to two metres higher than present, and that sea levels have risen and fallen like a roller coaster over the last 6,000 years; and a closer look at the X-38, a seven person crew return vehicle being designed by NASA to be the Space Station's lifeboat.
