How Do Citrus Fruits Create Such a Strong Smell?
Video

Citrus fruits contain small pockets of liquid which burst upon contact releasing a jet of strong smelling oil into the air. The strong smell is designed to attract animals to the site to help to spread the seeds of the fruit as far as possible. Andrew Dickerson at the University of Central Florida has recorded the squirting motion using high speed cameras to try to understand the exact process of these 'micro-jets' of citrus oil.

The Epigenetics of Your Cell Identity
Video

Do we really know what epigenetics is? In this talk the molecular biologist Gabriella Ficz offers a comprehensive look in all we need to know about epigenetics. She sheds light on the nature of this mechanism that from the moment we are conceived gets activated and defines the identity of our cells. In further elaborating on the matter, she presents groundbreaking research findings on the ways epigenetic mechanisms can result in the initiation of cancer.

Investigating the World's Lightest Solid
Video

Aerogels are the world's lightest (least dense) solids. They are also excellent thermal insulators and have been used in numerous Mars missions and the Stardust comet particle-return mission. The focus of this video is silica aerogels, though graphene aerogels are now technically the lightest.

The Immortal Cells of Henrietta Lacks
Video

Imagine something small enough to float on a particle of dust that holds the keys to understanding cancer, virology, and genetics. Luckily for us, such a thing exists in the form of trillions upon trillions of human, lab-grown cells called HeLa. But where did we get these cells?
