The amount of junk in orbit is always increasing but cleaning it up is also essential for our future space operations, but it’s not going to be easy.
 
Space junk includes old satellites, spent rocket stages, dust from solid rocket motors and even coolant from obsolete Russian nuclear-powered satellites. But just how much is up there?
 
The gold in a Nobel Prize medal is dense enough to make a big impression when you try to take it through an airport X-ray scanner. It's also very resistant to being dissolved—but that didn't stop one chemist who needed to hide two medals from the Nazis, as Dr Karl Kruszelnicki explains.
 
A condition called misophonia — where people adversely react to particular sounds, often with feelings of rage, terror, fear and panic — was first identified 20 years ago, but is only now starting to be better understood.
 
They can seal tight, suck, blow, whistle, hold and kiss. With hundreds of muscles and multiple layers of cells, the human lip serves a much greater role than we give them credit for.
 
For 50 years air conditioning in commercial buildings has been set using the Standard 55 guidelines. But many workplaces aren't staffed solely with 40-year-old men dressed in 60s business suits, and that's left women out in the cold, as Dr Karl Kruszelnicki argues.

As New Year's Eve ticked over to 2017, scientists added an extra second to atomic clocks to compensate for the Earth's variable rotation. But there are pros and cons to doing this, as Dr Karl Kruszelnicki explains.
 
We know that the rotation of the Earth is gradually slowing down. But what would happen if God, the devil or aliens suddenly and completely stopped our planet from rotating on its axis of spin? Luckily, thanks to improved knowledge about our planet, the geographers can now give us the answers.
 
There are many reasons animals of the same species congregate in groups. The collective intelligence of a flock helps protect and save energy, keep them on track when migrating and share food discoveries, as Dr Karl explains.
