Welcome to STEMology – Show Notes
Season 1, Episode 23
Sperm book, ocean eruptions, phosphorescent fingerprints, and whiskey fueled trucks
In today’s episode of STEMology…
Sophie and David are talking about how Japanese scientists have been air mailing mouse sperm on a postcard, sea level controls volcano eruptions, new phosphorescence technique to acquire hidden fingerprints and whiskey delivery trucks fueled by whiskey production waste
apparently all you do is you take your plastic sheet from … your book that contains all of your plastic sheets of sperm in weighing paper, you take your plastic sheet and simply attach it to a postcard with nothing else. You take your plastic sheet, you stick it to a postcard, you mail the postcard
Some volcanoes will be more susceptible to others than others to this effect, but they also say something pointed out something pretty cool, which is if the sea level is controlling the activity of volcanoes near the ocean, then you’d expect all of these volcanoes to be in sync with one another.
This new one works on the phosphorescence, which is much better because you shine a great big light on it, then you take it away and then you just look the shining fingerprints and apparently it means then it works quite well on what they’ve referred to as challenging surfaces that have in-built fluorescent security feature.
The idea is you’re getting all of these byproducts when you’re making whiskey. So what they’re looking for is this closed loop, sustainability kind of things
