Listen to Why Planets are Unique; and Music and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy51:2721 August 2022

Associate Professor Katarina Miljkovic, from Curtin University’s Space Science and Technology Centre and School of Earth and Planetary Sciences, explains how the planets in our solar system are vastly different although they all formed from the same cloud of gas and dust around a star – our sun. Why is this? Does the answer lie in studying how asteroids, comets and meteors bombarded the planets in the past, changing surface conditions? And Dr Liam Hall, ARC DECRA Fellow, School of Chemistry at The University of Melbourne, expert on quantum and matter physics, talks about his research into how music and NMR spectroscopy go together. Plus in science news, the team explore microbe-based batteries, and paths of distant light from deep space. With presenters Dr. Shane and Chris KP.
