Science Spin 55
Before we had all the elements that we need for life stars had to die. Without supernovae we could not have come into existence.
As the Earth's great tectonic plates push up against each other we get earthquakes. As Ireland's leading authority in this field explains, smaller quakes can prepare the way for even bigger events. Pendang in Indonesia is among the cities most at risk, but relatively simple measures could help more people to survive major earthquakes.
Looking forward to Science Week, Nobel winners solve an old problem of uncertainty, fruiting holly, common Irish fossils, and young scientists wonder if food can taste too good to be true.
