Early in its history, the Moon was molten, with “fire fountains” erupting from its surface. Astronauts have found tiny beads of glass on the Moon that preserve this history. How did the Moon cool down and become the quiet, cratered world we know today? NASA’s Chief Scientist Jim Green chats with NASA’s Deputy Chief Scientist Dave Draper about the Moon’s volcanic past and what we have learned from Apollo lunar samples.
Every member of the NASA team is critical to our success, even if they're still finishing school. In this episode, we hear from two of our summer interns, Amber George and Peter Henson, during their first week here and their first impressions.
As scientists at University College London announce the discovery of water in the atmosphere of a potentially habitable ‘super Earth’, Ian Sample explores our prospects for finding life beyond our own planet. Help support our independent journalism at theguardian.com/sciencepod

Bonsoir! Cette émission est la première de la saison 10, et nous sommes à la fois très fiers et très heureux de vous retrouver. Fiers, parce que nous entamons quand même la 10ème année de l’existence de ce podcast, malgré les difficultés techniques de se retrouver une fois par semaine en direct quand nous résidons à 10 000 km les uns des autres. Fiers parce que même si parfois nous faisons des erreurs, si parfois nos émissions ne sont pas aussi carrées que nous le voudrions, et bien nous sommes toujours là pour continuer et essayer d’aller plus loin. Fiers parce que vous, auditeurs, vous êtes là aussi et que vous justifiez par votre simple écoute l’existence de ce podcast. Fiers parce que notre seul bénéfice c’est le bonheur de partager les sciences avec vous, et 10 saisons plus tard, c’est toujours notre joie ! Vous êtes sur Podcast Science, émission 382 pour certains, trois-cent-huitante-deux pour d’autres, nous sommes le 11 septembre de l’an 2019, premier épisode de notre saison 10, merci de nous écouter et bienvenue.

Notre générique est signé Oscar Garvin (www.oscargarvin.com)
Science historian Amir Alexander shares how Euclidean geometry came to influence politics, art, and the nature of cities.
A million years ago, the black hole at the center of our galaxy burped. Now, scientists are exploring what the resulting bubbles might say about our kinship with other galaxies.
Neuroscientists say they can learn a lot by observing brains at play.
The Science Friday Book Club is done birding—for now. But after wrapping up our summer discussion of Jennifer Ackerman’s The Genius of Birds, bird enthusiasts flocked together at Caveat, a venue in New York City, for one last celebration of bird brains and feathered phenomena. We pitted audience members up against some local bird geniuses in tests of memory, pattern recognition, and problem-solving. Then, we brought on a gaggle of experts to talk about the special and smart birds of New York City, along with some of the threats they face—including bright lights and deceptive glass. And with fall migration underway, we’re talking about many more species than pigeons. Science Friday SciArts producer and book club flock leader Christie Taylor hosted the conversation with NYC Audubon conservation biologist Kaitlyn Parkins, Wild Bird Fund director Rita McMahon, Fordham University evolutionary biologist Elizabeth Carlen, and National Audubon editor and Feminist Bird Club vice president Martha Harbison.
Wind turbines are great at producing green energy. But when they reach the end of their life-span, their blades are incredibly difficult to recycle.

What makes breakfast, breakfast? Well, according to every movie and TV show we've ever seen, a big glass of orange juice is basically required. But our morning grapefruit might be in danger. Why? Citrus greening, a bacteria carried by a bug, has infected 90% of the citrus groves in Florida. It's coming for your OJ. We'll talk with University of Maryland plant virologist Anne Simon about ways to stop the citrus killer, and with science writer and journalist Maryn McKenna about why throwing antibiotics at the problem is probably not the solution.
