Body of Science

Science is all around us and it is even inside of us! On this episode of SCOPE we explore the science that makes us, us. We discover some fascinating facts about the tongue, we learn how an exoskeleton is helping paraplegics walk and we check out some 3D printed heart stents!

Exo-Skeleton Tech: Genny Kroll-Rosen and Jim Barrett from Making Strides show us some exciting exoskeleton technology that can help people during rehabilitation or to take steps every day.

Body Facts - Tongue: The tongue is one of the most important muscles in the body. It helps us with eating, tasting and even talking! Join Dr Tom Pearson from the University of Queensland as he lays out some fascinating facts about this biologically baffling body part!

DIY Science - Stress Test: Junior scientist Harry puts stress to the test using a thermometer, a blood pressure monitor and a challenging general knowledge quiz.

3D Heart Stents: 3D printed technology is everywhere! From engineering to art and now even the heart! Join Professor Peter Barlis from the University of Melbourne as he explains how this amazing technology is reshaping cardiology!

Saliva Stress Test: Your saliva can tell a lot about you, including your stress levels! Billymo Rist from St Kilda Football Club shows us how he uses a simple test to find out how stressed AFL players are.

It's all covered on this medically sound episode of SCOPE; where the ordinary becomes extraordinary.

Since it's formation in the early '60s, NASA has continued to be the leading power in space exploration. Working with other space agencies, it has contributed substantially to the ongoing exploration of our universe, achieving incredible firsts that span the decades. This film comprehensively chronicles the finest moments in NASA's triumphant space program, reliving some of the most inspirational and famous moments that have captivated audiences and inspired generations around the world, over the last five decades. 1965, Ed White became the first American to leave his capsule in orbit. In just four years, Neil Armstrong steps from the ladder of his Lunar Module and becomes the first man to set foot on another world. Fast forward 30 years and the Mars Pathfinder lands safely on the Red Planet, beaming back incredible surface images of our closest planetary neighbour. Also including triumphs such as the Hubble Telescope, and the efforts of the crew that saved the astronauts of Apollo 13, this mini-series highlights some of the most memorable and pivotal moments within mankind's legacy. Using stunning NASA archive footage and featuring expert interviews with space scientists, NASA's 10 Greatest Achievements reveals the importance of space exploration and uncovers the ways in which this knowledge has benefited all of Mankind over the last five decades. Nowhere is our potential for greatness more clearly demonstrated than in our constant quest to explore the cosmos, and this mini-series highlights the finest moments in a 50-year quest.
