RUNNING SHOE: Imagine if your shoes could tell you when they needed replacing! Well, that's where Dr Paul Collins and Dr Jason Bonacci from Deakin University are hoping their research on shoe deterioration will lead. DIY - COLOUR CHANGING TEE: Join Junior Scientist Mackenzie as he explores the properties of photochromic paint by making a t-shirt that changes colour in the sun! WETSUIT EXPERIMENTING: Wetsuits are an essential piece of equipment for many water based hobbies and sports! That's why it's so important Dr Anthony Ellis and his junior scientists from BioLab find the most efficient and suitable material for their very own wetsuit! AERODYNAMIC HELMET: When it comes to cycling a fraction of a second can mean the difference between winning and losing. And as Richard and Fergus Kelso from the University of Adelaide explain it could be your helmet that propels you to victory.

Hydro Habitats: Some animals live in trees, others on land but a vast majority of them live in the stuff that covers 70% of our planet's surface. That's right, on this episode of SCOPE we explore the aquatic world of hydro habitats! We head out to Victoria's largest national marine park, we catch up with some dolphins and we learn all about the bizarre breeding habits of coral!

Dolphin Sanctuary: Pollution can have a devastating effect on our marine ecosystem. But as Marianna Boorman from the Adelaide Dolphin Sanctuary Action Group explains, these effects can be reversed and marine life can return to a previously inhospitable environment. DIY Science - Water Filter: Clean water isn't hard to come by in a country like Australia, but what if we didn't have access to clean water? Well we'd have to use a filter! Join junior scientist Alexi as he tries out several different water filters to find the most efficient way of making dirty water clean! Coral Spawning: Coral reefs are essential to the health of a marine ecosystems. So understanding how they reproduce is vital! Join Dr Christopher Doropoulos from the CSIRO as he walks us through the bizarre breeding habits of coral! Clownfish Conservation: Meet Anita Nedosyko from Flinders University, she's developed a captive breeding program for Clownfish that is helping conserve their populations in the wild! So join Lee in the lab as the ordinary becomes extraordinary under the SCOPE!

On this episode of Scope we find out what happens when the environment and technology collide. Not only can they live in harmony, they can help each other out! We check out the amazing life of coral, we learn how to make crystals from eggs and we explore ecosystems with our ears! LIGHTS, CAMERA AND CORAL: The stars in Brett Lewis' nature documentaries may be slow, but they're still rather spectacular! Join him at Queensland University of Technology as he explain how he's able to capture the movements of these amazing creatures! SMARTER STREET LIGHTS: Imagine if the streets lights were able to see you coming and light the way just for you! Well imagine no more! Priscilla Corbell and Peter Auhl from Adealide City Council introduce us to the new smart street lights gracing our streets! WEED FUEL: Weeds can be pesky backyard intruders! But as Caitlin Byrt from the University of Adelaide explains, they might one day be used to run our cars! DIY - EGG GEODE: Crystals can be found everywhere, from salt to snowflakes to diamonds! Junior Scientist Luci shows us how she makes crystals in egg shells and they are egg-cellent. GREENHOUSE LASER: Our planet relies upon a delicate balance gasses, which makes monitoring these gases very important! Meet Associate Professor David Ottaway and Dr Ori Henderson Sapir from the University of Adelaide who have developed a new laser which can detect greenhouse gasses over long distances. ACOUSTIC MONITORING: Dr David Tucker from Queensland University of Technology lets us in on how he eavesdrops on a forest to find out how natural sounds can speak volumes about an ecosystem's health!

The Industrial Revolution in the Eighteenth Century brought mass production and mechanisation to jobs that previously had been done by hand and as Britain became a technological and economic powerhouse she produced two-thirds of the world's coal and over half the world's iron. It made the nation rich, but for thousands of people working like ants in the factories, it was a new and mind-numbing form of poverty.

This week Brian Cox explores the ingredients needed for an intelligent civilisation to evolve in the universe - the need for a benign star, for a habitable planet, for life to spontaneously arise on such a planet and the time required for intelligent life to evolve and build a civilisation. Brian weighs the evidence and arrives at his own provocative answer to the puzzle of our apparent solitude.
