Who said knitting was boring?!
We worked on a project knitting tiny polyester microtubes to be used as body implants, providing support for various body tissues as they re-grow. It's kind of like scaffolds for the body. Polyester is sterile and the body’s immune system won’t reject it so it's a great material to work with. This microtube's diameter is ~1 mm!

Don’t often think of beautiful photography when you think of science? Well we’re here to prove you wrong. Head on over to CSIROgram because this week our microscopy team is taking over our Instagram account in the name of art. They’re responsible for the beautiful (and creepy) pics you see under the microscope.

We introduced insect resistant traits, developed by Monsanto, into our cotton varieties bred especially for Australian conditions, revolutionising disease and pest resistance, yield and fibre quality.
All Australian cotton, half the dryland cotton in the United States and about one-third of the cotton in Brazil, Turkey and Greece, benefits from CSIRO-bred varieties. #CSIROworld

It's been 20 years since Harry Potter was introduced to the world (feeling old yet?!). The Harry Potter series inspired many people over the years, including scientists! Here's three critters who were named after characters in the books: Eriovixia Gryffindori (the sorting hat spider) Harryplax severus (the Snape crab) and Ampulex dementor (the dementor wasp).

'Marco?' '...Polo'

While most objects in our solar system are orbiting in the same plane, a 'flat disk' stretching from the Sun, some on the outer reaches - like rocks in the Kuiper belt - orbit on a plane that's a few degrees askew, leading astronomers to suspect a massive, unseen planet behind the phenomenon.

Good morning! This darling brown antechinus wishes you a happy Saturday!

Antechinus are a native marsupial and, as is standard in Australia, they're a bit unique. Except for one species, antechinus are semelparous. This means the males put all their effort into one breeding season and then die (from exhaustion!). This strategy is common in the insect world but a very unusual strategy for a...
