Dr Shane is joined in the studio with fellow EAGG colleagues Dr Ailie and Dr Jeff.

The team share brief science news on subjects like Autism and recent weather news in the Arctic, but the majority of the show is spent with two very special guests.

Firstly we have an interview with NASA Astronaut Colonel Terry Vertz who has spent over 200+ days in space as he recounts how he got involved in the space game, tributes to Leonard Nimoy as well as news on why is in Australia and what's happening in 2016 in terms of space exploration.

After this the team are joined in the studio by Associate Professor Ed Hawkins (Department of Meteorology at the University of Reading, UK) who has become somewhat of a science celebrity in recent times since his development of the 'Spiral' which simply explains the progress and effects of climate change. Along with this development, Professor Hawkins shares updates regarding the subject, as well as delving into the history of Climate change, when did we first begin studying this phenomenon?

Remember,. Science is everywhere..
