Tardigrades can dry out, survive up to 30 years without eating a thing, and then wake up to pair off with another tardigrade like it never happened. How? They turn into glass statues, of course.

Listen in to learn about tardigrades, the evolution of our nose, why droplets splash less on mountain tops and more!

Carp and get 'em — we've landed a big one on Interronauts, it's 20 minutes, no...30 minutes! no...it was 40 minutes long!

Jesse, Sophie, and Adrian talk with Dr Ken McColl the researcher leading the project to introduce herpes to our pest carp. They also chat about tardigrades, climbing foxes, and the evolution of the nose.

Reel it in and eat it up with your ears.

They might not look as cool as an F1 car, but our range of fuels maximise electricity generation and extend the life of the engine. Maybe someone should tell Hamilton? #CSIROenergy

On average, 41 Australians are diagnosed with bowel cancer every day. Early detection is key and we're working hard to find faster, cheaper, easier and more effective ways to detect bowel cancer.

This is especially cool because the specimen scientists first identified as a night parrot (the type specimen) way back in the 1800s was from the same region! <3

With this new definition of a planet, our solar system's planet count might reach 110 (and yes, Pluto's in there).

In our opinion, the new definition would also describe porcupine fish, the desert rain frog, and coconuts.

WTF is our latest ground-breaking discovery...

Well, we can't tell you, because the next great finding may be hiding in too much data for any person to sort through. And that's why we're developing machine-learning to teach our 'scopes what we don't know so they can zero in on it for us.
