Sharks’ intestines, an antarctic airstrip, VR crime scene and venom bandaids
In today’s episode of STEMology…
Sophie and David are talking about recent discovery that sharks’ intestines actually looks like shape of Tesla valve, the effort required to build an airstrip at the antarctic, how using VR crime scenes inside the court may lead to different juror’s verdict and healing bandaids made from snakes’ venom…
Sharks are top predators in the ocean that eat a lot of different things, invertebrates, fish, mammals, and even sea grass, they control the biodiversity of these species. So basically knowing how sharks turned them into poop is very important for our understanding of the ecosystem
They’d say there are issues with runway melting or being too soft to land on. They need engineered solutions…
They did a little study looking at comparing traditional methods versus this new VR method and what they found was that people who were shown photographs of the crime scene came to quite different conclusions about in this fake crime scene
What they found was that methacrylated gelatin applied aorta, bled a little bit, but the one with the retilase and methacrylated gelatin combination didn’t bleed at all and they could twist it and bend it around. And it wouldn’t rupture.
This is a “kind of, sort of, vaguely close” copy of the words that David & Sophie speak in this episode.
