    The COVID-19 pandemic is unprecedented and clinicians have faced correspondingly unprecedented challenges in caring for patients in genetics and metabolic disease clinics who require routine check-ups and ongoing treatments. Yet, in overcoming these challenges, doctors have identified a few boons to patient care that may continue to benefit patients in the long run. Listen in to this month’s GenePod to hear how Dr. Nicola Brunetti-Pierri, a clinician at the Federico II University Hospital in Naples, Italy, and Dr. Elaine Pereira, a clinical geneticist at Columbia University in New York City, two of the areas hardest hit by the pandemic, adapted patient care amid government lock-downs and what silver linings they found.

    We speak to an astronomer who spends his day studying the motions of ancient asteroids as they roam around the Solar System. If one of them poses a threat, he'll be one of the first to know, and would provide us with the information we would need to act. In this episode, Marco Micheli tells us how many asteroids we know of, how many he is currently worried about, and what we could do to prevent an impact. He also explains how the Gaia observatory currently mapping a billion stars has revolutionised our understanding of the motions of asteroids: “Its very rare to have such a dramatic change in science. Typically, science moves forwards in small steps towards improvement, but Gaia is such a huge leap forward in this specific area of asteroids, its amazing”.

  • Gravity Assist: If They Call, Will We Listen? The Search for Technosignatures

    So far we’ve talked about life in terms of its chemistry and telltale signs of biology. But what if there’s intelligent life out there in the universe that has created technologies just as good, or even more advanced, than our own? Some scientists are thinking about how we would detect the signals that would come from distant civilizations, if they are out there. Those signals are called “technosignatures.” Jason Wright, professor of astronomy and astrophysics at Penn State, has been thinking about the different technosignatures we could pick up using the telescopes we already have, and the telescopes that we could develop in the future.
