26. Plastic brains for adults - w/ Giuliano Didio

Welcome back to The Science Basement Podcast! Our guest this week is Giuliano Didio, who is a PhD student at the Helsinki Institute of Life Science (HiLIFE) of the University of Helsinki. He works on the magical world of brains! Did you know that the common saying that kids learn things faster is actually true? That’s because the infant brain is very “plastic”. Listen to this episode to learn what brain plasticity is and how to increase brain plasticity in adults! …and, of course, it wouldn't be an episode of the TSB podcast without a science anecdote. This time we talk about the autonomous reflexes that only babies have! ~•~•~ Where you can find us: Homepage: www.thesciencebasement.org Facebook: www.facebook.com/TheScienceBasementTSB Instagram: @science_basement Twitter: @ScienceBasement Email: thesciencebasement.helsinki@gmail.com Music by Havelocke http://thisishavelocke.bandcamp.com

25. The dark side of the Moon - w/ Markku Alho

Welcome back to The Science Basement Podcast! Our guest this week is Markku Alho, who is a PhD student at Aalto University. He works on plasma modelling of solar wind interactions with several bodies in space. In this episode, we focus mostly on the Moon and how the solar wind “bombards” its surface, but we also talk for example about Venus, Mars, and comets! …and, of course, it wouldn't be an episode of the TSB podcast without a science anecdote. This time we talk about the chinese probe Chang’e 4 that recently landed on the “dark” side of the Moon! ~•~•~ Links from this episode: • Finland goes to the Moon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Irxd89oP7Vw • The #dearMoon project: https://dearmoon.earth • Aalto virtual planetarium: http://space.aalto.fi/software/?fbclid=IwAR0FlE2uWYEve4XEI2mChgpOJ2YTj1IuOpnqDDE7L0-leJyziuH1p-6HGJc ~•~•~ Where you can find us: Homepage: www.thesciencebasement.org Facebook: www.facebook.com/TheScienceBasementTSB Instagram: @science_basement Tw...

24. In social sciences your data can look back at you - w/ Anastasia Diatlova

Welcome back to The Science Basement Podcast! Our guest this week is Anastasia Diatlova, who is a doctoral researcher in Sociology at the Faculty of Social Sciences of the University of Helsinki. Her research focusses on the daily experience of life and work of russian-speaking sex workers in Finland. It is also the first time we have a guest telling us about social sciences, so we have the opportunity to learn about data collection through interviews, i.e. when your data can literally look back at you! Listen to this episode to learn more! …and, of course, it wouldn't be an episode of the TSB podcast without a science anecdote. This time we talk about the YouTube comment section! ~•~•~ Links from this episode: • Anastasia's article about her research: https://discoversociety.org/2017/08/02/living-the-border-russian-speaking-sex-workers-in-finland/ • Apologia by Soup Troupe: https://www.rstc.fi/productions/apologia ~•~•~ Where you can find us: Homepage: www.thesciencebasement...

23. Plants are leaking gas all the time - w/ Arnaud Praplan

Welcome back to The Science Basement Podcast! Our guest this week is Arnaud Praplan, who is an Academy Research Fellow at the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI). His research focusses on the reactive chemical compounds emitted by plants into the atmosphere and their oxidation reactions. Did you know that plants emit stuff all the time, and that their emission depends on the season, the temperature, the amount of light, and many other factors? Listen to this episode to learn more! …and, of course, it wouldn't be an episode of the TSB podcast without a science anecdote. This time we talk about the importance of toilets! ~•~•~ Links from this episode: • Arnaud’s blog: https://reactivitair.blogspot.com • UN toilet day: http://www.un.org/en/events/toiletday/ ~•~•~ Where you can find us: Homepage: www.thesciencebasement.org Facebook: www.facebook.com/TheScienceBasementTSB Instagram: @science_basement Twitter: @ScienceBasement Email: thesciencebasement.helsinki@gmail.com Music ...

22. If a huge solar storm comes we can be left without social media - w/ Diana Morosan

Welcome back to The Science Basement Podcast! Our guest this week is Diana Morosan, postdoctoral researcher in solar physics at the University of Helsinki. We chat about multiple things: how to observe the Sun in radio frequencies, the big LOFAR radio telescope, the solar cycle, solar storms, the coronal heating problem, and many other things. In particular, tune in to hear what would happen to us if a huge solar storm would hit Earth! …and, of course, it wouldn't be an episode of the TSB podcast without a science anecdote. This time we talk about one of the biggest solar storms ever recorded, the Carrington event! ~•~•~ Links for this episode • the LOFAR radio telescope: http://www.lofar.org/ • Carrington's sketch of the 1959 flare: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/e5/Carrington_Richard_sunspots_1859.jpg ~•~•~ Where you can find us: Homepage: www.thesciencebasement.org Facebook: www.facebook.com/TheScienceBasementTSB Instagram: @science_basement Twitter: @Sci...

21. Shooting X-rays at things - w/ Ari-Pekka Honkanen

Welcome back to The Science Basement Podcast! Our guest this week is Ari-Pekka Honkanen, PhD student at the Materials Physics lab of the University of Helsinki. He studies the structure of materials by "shooting" X-rays at them! He also explains us how an X-ray detector works. …and, of course, it wouldn't be an episode of the TSB podcast without a science anecdote. This time we talk about how X-rays helped discover the structure of penicillin and the DNA! ~•~•~ Links for this episode • Ari-Pekka's YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_gIlueUGYNXPb9yZ5uPVEg ~•~•~ Where you can find us: Homepage: www.thesciencebasement.org Facebook: www.facebook.com/TheScienceBasementTSB Instagram: @science_basement Twitter: @ScienceBasement Email: thesciencebasement.helsinki@gmail.com Music by Havelocke https://thisishavelocke.bandcamp.com

20. Epigenome, DNA, and pineapple on pizza - w/ Chiara Facciotto

Welcome back to The Science Basement Podcast! Our guest this week is Chiara Facciotto, PhD student at Biomedicum in Helsinki. She works on how epigenetics influences cancer response to therapy. Follow us to discover what the epigenome is and how it relates to our DNA, and why it is a very bad idea to put pineapple on your pizza! …and, of course, it wouldn't be an episode of the TSB podcast without a science anecdote.

Welcome back to The Science Basement Podcast! Our guest this week is Camille Bélanger-Champagne, post-doctoral researcher at the Helsinki Institute of Physics (HIP) in the technology programme. Her research focusses on instruments for nuclear safeguards! The instrument she works on can be used by the inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to check that facilities that handle nuclear power are using nuclear material for peaceful and civilian activies only. We chat with Camille about her work, about the nuclear plants in Finland, and about how a nuclear reactor works! …and, of course, it wouldn't be an episode of the TSB podcast without a science anecdote. This time we talk about the Fermi solution! ~•~•~ Links from this episode: • The Fermi Solution (book): https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/507755.The_Fermi_Solution • The Trinity test: http://www.dannen.com/decision/fermi.html ~•~•~ Where you can find us: Homepage: www.thesciencebasement.org Facebook:...
