Welcome to STEMology – Show Notes
Season 1, Episode 12
A tricksy processor, a 3rd thumb, tardigrades survival, and the journey into the deep deep blue
In today’s episode of STEMology, we’re going to talk to you about …
Morpheus – a processor that can halting hackers, how attaching a 3rd thumb has lead scientists to understanding more in the human brain, tardigrades can survive a lot of things, but not crashing into a planet, and while going to Mars is pretty cool and exciting, successfully travelling to the deepest part of Earth’s ocean has just been completed by an Aussie & a Kiwi.
So the idea is they’ve come up with this processor that literally turns itself into a jigsaw puzzle. So as hackers are trying to hack, it changes itself in real time.
This study seems to be one of the first studies that looks at when you augment someone, when you give them a robotic something or other that they didn’t have before, what happens to their brain to accommodate that?
One of the interesting implications of this study is that it may allow us to look for life elsewhere in the solar system.
They get down there and they talk about how amazing is to be in this ecosystem that’s almost completely unexplored
