What the clam gardens of indigenous people in the Pacific Northwest can teach us about sustainable aquaculture
This week we start with this year's physics Nobel Prize awarded to Jim Peebles, Michel Mayor, and Didier Queloz and finish with a discussion of the Nobel Prizes as a way to award and highlight important science. Are they still relevant? When science breakthroughs are built on the backs of hundreds -- and sometimes thousands -- of people's hard work, how do you pick just three to highlight? Join host Rachelle Saunders and astrophysicist, author, and science communicator Ethan Siegel for their chat about astrophysics and Nobel Prizes.
There is some evidence to suggest that proactive policing tactics, which include “stop-and-frisk” and “hot spots” policing, are effective in reducing crime, but at what cost?
On Episode 113, science journalist and Apollo historian Andrew Chaikin discusses why the Moon is a desirable object for exploration and makes the case for applying the lessons of the Apollo lunar program to NASA's Artemis Program.

De l’importance de l’oxygène dans le monde vivant... Cette semaine le jury du prix Nobel a décerné celui de médecine à trois chercheurs qui ont consacré leur travaux à l’adaptation des cellules à la quantité d'oxygène qui leur est disponible. Et en miroir, heureux hasard, notre Taupo, a aussi décidé de vous en parler. Mais en partant d’une problématique fort différente. Car ce soir nous allons voir ensemble les structures que l’on peut rencontrer chez les insectes pour subvenir à leurs besoins en 0xygène . Respirez, nous sommes le mercredi 9 octobre de l’an 2019, vous êtes sur Podcast Science, émission 386, bienvenue!
A recording of a magnitude 3.7 marsquake from InSight's seismometer, called SEIS. This quake was recorded on May 22, 2019 (the 173rd Martian day, or sol, of the mission). Far below the human range of hearing, this sonification from SEIS had to be sped up and slightly processed to be audible through headphones.

A recording of a magnitude 3.3 marsquake from InSight's seismometer, called SEIS. This quake was recorded on July 25, 2019 (Sol 235). Far below the human range of hearing, this sonification from SEIS had to be sped up and slightly processed to be audible through headphones.
Researchers found that the cartilage in our ankles might be able to turnover more easily compared to our hips and knees.
A recording of "dinks and donks," strange sounds created by friction inside of InSight's seismometer, called SEIS. Scientists aren't entirely sure what causes each of these sounds, by they are created by parts inside the seismometer contracting as they cool down, especially during sunset. These were recorded on just after sundown on July 16, 2019 (Sol 226).
Everyone's seen a piece of science getting over-exaggerated in the media. Most people would be quick to blame journalists and big media for getting in wrong. In many cases, you'd be right. But there's other sources of hype in science journalism. and one of them can be found in the humble, and little-known press release. We're talking with Chris Chambers about doing science about science journalism, and where the hype creeps in.
In her new book, Naomi Oreskes says we should trust science, but not for the reasons you might think.
