Another quiet week for Science TV and Radio, collated by @MrsDrSarah.
Sarah’s picks for this week are Costing the Earth (on Tues and Wed) about GM technology which may be helpful for A level Biologists, and Map Man (on Sat) which tells the story of the first London A-Z. My picks are The Why Factor on Monday about why children lie as part of their development, and All in the Mind from last week which includes a piece on research into effective revision techniques.
This week’s video is via @Alby. Science@NASA produce many videos about the work NASA does; although recently funding decisions have required them to cut back on their educational output, hopefully this will be temporary. This video (http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/videogallery/index.html?collection_id=14483&media_id=163147311) describes the monitoring of meteor strikes on the moon, and an event in March this year that was as bright as a 4th magnitude star, easily seen without a telescope.
