Using composite materials to replace bone
In this podcast, Professor Chris Rudd, Dean of the faculty of Engineering at the University of Nottingham, describes his work with composite materials in the car industry and how it can be applied to the field of medicine. Traditionally, patients who have lost bone in an accident or have had bone removed due to cancer have had to endure two very long and very painful operations. One operation to attach steel plates to the bone, and a second operation once the bone has healed, to remove them. F

This short Quarantine Information Card (QIC) from Defra's Food and Environment Research Agency provides information on Monilinia brown rot, a fungal disease which mainly affects members of the Prunus family. The QIC includes details of the hosts, distribution, symptoms
Water continuously travels between Earth's surface and the atmosphere via the hydrologic cycle. Through five main processes — condensation, precipitation, infiltration, runoff, and evapotranspiration — water is perpetually recycled. In this interactive resource adapted from NASA, explore the steps of the water cycle. This interactive site does not include any audio.
More than 155 planets have been found outside of our solar system since the first extra-solar planet was identified in 1995. The search has long been heavily biased towards finding massive planets with short orbits. Now, to find an Earth-like planet, scientists are looking for a planetary setup that is similar to our own, in which a Jupiter-like planet lies a good distance away from its sun. This video segment adapted from NOVA explores how the arrangement of planets in our solar system may have
On Earth, water can regularly be found in three different phases — liquid, solid, and gas — each of which has noticeably different properties. For example, a boat can glide through liquid water in summer, but it cannot do so when the water turns to solid ice in winter. Atmospheric conditions, specifically seasonal temperatures, can influence the phase in which water exists at a given time. This short video segment depicts water in different seasons at the same location. No narration. Run
