Welcome to STEMology – Show Notes
Season 1, Episode 25
Pill bots, sexy snakes, blind colours and Spacey McSpaceport
In today’s episode of STEMology…
David and Sophie will talk about swallowing a robot to deliver insulin treatment drugs, how sea snakes mistaken divers as a potential mating partner, how the blinds and sighted understand colour in the same way, and the fight of a space for a spaceports …
Why not just do an injection of insulin if you can do that?
And the reason is it’s actually not very good to have insulin going everywhere in your body. Having a device intraperitonealy means that the insulin goes into your portal vein, and then into your liver, just like it would, if you had a pancreas, which means you avoid some of the problems of having insulin absolutely everywhere in your body….
Because the snakes can’t see very well and because they need to lick things in order to identify them chemically, they approach human beings because they need to lick them in order to identify what they are to know if they can have sex with them.
What the blind and sighted people made identical judgments about these novel objects, showing that the colour knowledge, generalizes to new examples, and it’s not dependent on memorizing. So it’s just intrinsic understanding of colour.
I believe that his, the environmental concerns that he raises are actually legitimate …. So the A’Mhoine peninsula is known for peatlands and its rich biodiversity.
…. Peatlands are incredibly important for carbon capture. So apparently they’re way better than like rainforests any forests actively sequestering carbon from the atmosphere
