Star Lectures: Professor Brian Cox (part 5 of 5) Life Cycle of Stars. How do we study the stars? - Yuan-Sen Ting. Stunning photography captures the beauty of the night sky. Urban light pollution has so dimmed the heavens that those of us living in cities barely register the awesome spectacle countless generations of our forebears contemplated nightly.
The night sky inspired imaginative creation stories and intricate mythologies. It turned thoughts to religion and to science, to astrology and astronomy. Yet even as the industrial age has shrouded the stars, technology has also put within reach of the average person the ability to see them like never before. The citizen scientist now has access to equipment that was once the province of dedicated astronomers bankrolled by principalities and philanthropy. It is to encourage average people to reach for the stars that the Central West Astronomical Society, based at CSIRO’s Parkes Radio Observatory in western New South Wales, sponsors an annual astrophotography competition.

Basic Genetics. DNA Structure. DNA: The book of you - Joe Hanson. Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) is a private, not-for-profit research and education institution at the forefront of molecular biology and genetics.
Was an annus mirabilis for science. Here are five classic papers from Nature that describe and provide evidence for the double helix being the structure of DNA, and one from The Journal of Experimental Medicine that has been described as the "defining moment in nucleic acid research. " is an incredible picture of unlinked DNA under the electron microscope. Acid (DNA) molecules are informational molecules encoding the genetic instructions used in the development and functioning of all known living organisms and many viruses. The twisting tale of DNA - Judith Hauck. Deoxyribonucleic acid, or DNA, is a nucleic acid containing the genetic instructions used in the development and functioning of all known living organisms (with the exception of RNA viruses).
Which contains the biological instructions that make each species unique, along with the instructions it contains, is passed from adult organisms to their offspring during reproduction. National Human Genome Research Institute began as the National Center for Human Genome Research (NCHGR), which was established in 1989 to carry out the role of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the International Human Genome Project (HGP). The HGP was developed in collaboration with the United States Department of Energy and begun in 1990 to map the human genome.
Information in DNA is stored as a code made up of four chemical bases: adenine (A), guanine (G), cytosine (C), and thymine (T). Moral Machine. The Origin of Species: The Making of a Theory. The 12 Days of Evolution - Complete Series! Five Fingers of Evolution - Paul Andersen. UNSW Science Year 10 Work Experience 2017 - UNSW Science for society. UNSW Science will be running the Year 10 work Experience Program from 27 November to 1 December 2017.
We are currently accepting applications from students in Year 10 who are enrolled in an Australian secondary school. All successful applicants will be notified on Friday 28 July, 2017. We expect the selection process for up to 60 available places to be competitive. Our work experience program aims to give students the opportunity to: Gain insight and experience into the faculty’s everyday work, which involves a diverse array of SciencesGain experience working with one of our industry partners eg The Australian Museum, ANSTO, The Royal Botanic Gardens etcLearn what it's like to be a science communicatorExplore their career and study interests.

Stars: Life and Death (Discovery Channel) What light can teach us about the universe - Pete Edwards. Particles and waves: The central mystery of quantum mechanics - Chad Orzel. While the story in the video starts around 1900, the question of whether light is a particle or a wave is much older, dating back to the 1600’s.
Isaac Newton put forth a particle model of light as a stream of “corpuscles,” while the Dutch physicist Christiaan Huygens preferred a model of light as a wave. The question was thought to have been settled in 1800 by Thomas Young, who provided a definitive demonstration of wave behavior when light encounters a pair of small slits, an experiment.You can see this dramatized in this Veritasium video. You can also simulate the behavior of waves using a large number of Java applets collected here. Give it a try! Young’s experiments and subsequent work by Jean-Augustin Fresnel convinced everyone that light was a wave, and that consensus held for about a hundred years. The wave model of light started to have problems, though, when Max Planck was trying to explain the spectrum of light emitted by a hot object. What is color? - Colm Kelleher. The 2,400-year search for the atom - Theresa Doud.
Ernest Rutherford Although Ernest Rutherford is well known for his discovery of the nucleus, he did a lot of other research and experiments into topics other than the atom.
He started his career studying electricity and magnetism and it wasn’t until he left his home of New Zealand and moved to Cambridge, England that he started working with the atom. Working under J.J. Thomson at Cambridge University, Rutherford investigated electrical conduction in gases using X-rays. When radioactive atoms were discovered in the late 1890s, he switched his experiment to use radioactivity instead of X-rays to initiate electrical conduction in his gases.
In 1911 after returning to England, Rutherford conducted his most famous experiment with alpha particles and gold foil which lead to his discovery of the nucleus.

Centre of the Cell. Schools and young people. Education resources. Thingdom - Educators. Thingdom challenges students to select and breed 'Things' to bring out particular characteristics through inheritance.
Play the game Using an engaging game format designed especially to appeal to teenagers, Thingdom provides an innovative way of illustrating some of the fundamental principles of genetics such as the inheritance of characteristics through generations, and dominant and recessive genes. It provides a fun and engaging way for students to practice solving simple genetic problems such as predicting the outcomes from monohybrid crosses. Centre of the Cell. GENIE One in a Million? This activity is a fun, interactive session where students look at a small number of their own physical traits, for example, whether they are male or female, whether they can roll their tongue or not and several others.
Tutor explaining One in a Million to group of students Students put this “scientific data” into an excel spreadsheet (supplied in the supporting documentation) and this then calculates how rare/special they are within a given population. This unique number is then written on a sticker and given to the student to wear. We find that many students ask about their siblings and whether they would be the same – which can provide an excellent basis for teaching about genes and recombination and inheritance. This session has been run for very young children right up to adults, and all seem to really enjoy it and ask lots of good questions about genes and other inherited traits.
