Hosts: Ed Brown, Dr. Shayne Joseph, Lucas Randall.

[00:01:11] A fifth gravitational wave detection in just two years confirms the dawn of a new era in astronomy. And this one was not only caused by two neutron stars coliding, it was accompanied by gamma ray detections, gave us more clues to the size of the universe, and a better understanding of how gold is formed.

[00:17:00] Bacteria inside cancer cells can weaken or destroy some chemotherapy drugs, rendering them useless. But antibiotics aren’t necessarily the answer.

[00:27:53] A quarter of cow DNA originally came from reptiles, thanks to retrotransposons – genes that jump from species to species.


This episode contains traces of Lisa “Kennedy” Montgomery, host of “Kennedy” on Fox Business Network, discussing the gravitational wave discovery with physicist Dr. Michio Kaku.
