#Perth #Researchers Developed the World's Smallest #Microscope | Particle The device uses a technology called Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT). OCT measures where light is bouncing, reflecting and scattering inside the tissue. The needle emits a beam of light. The way that light beam reflects and scatters in the tissue helps build an image of what’s going on inside.

The #Plane Facts One bright and sparkly morning last week, I arrived at my desk, coffee in my hand and science communication on my mind. The topic du jour? The latest research from #CSIRO, which attempted to better answer the question where on Earth is #MH370? I sat, ready to write a concise, compelling and factual article.

#Computer eyes and #machinelearning Have you ever uploaded a photo to #Facebook and found your friends already tagged in it? That’s possible thanks to a technique called machine learning, which lets #computers learn the same way humans do—through practice.
Criminal-convicting crotches #Microbiomes are a pretty hot topic. People are going gaga for good gut bugs and the health benefits they confer. But did you know your pubic hair hosts an equally useful collection of #microbes?
More than revenge—image-based sexual abuse in #Australia. ‘Revenge porn’ brings to mind an image of the scorned lover sharing lewd videos of their ex. Revenge implies justice, and pornography makes it seem intentional. But we know that isn’t the real picture of what’s going on.
The #science behind the #didgeridoo When you hear the sound of the didgeridoo, it might make you think of the Australian #outback. The first long drone like the sound of the dusty plains. Then suddenly a kangaroo hops by, followed by a little joey. The kookaburra laughs and the dingo howls. When a didgeridoo is playing, it almost sounds like the Earth itself speaking.
