Today's show featured two more Fresh Scientists for 2008. We chatted with Catia Domingues on her worrying research that indicates our oceans are warming at a rate faster than was previously thought, and Dr Susan Angus about her research on silicon radio-frequency single electron transistors for quantum computers. There was a liquid theme to the science news for the week – Phoenix confirms water on Mars, Cassini confirms liquid hydrocarbon lakes on Titan, and oceanographers plan to dive 1.6km to the bottom ofthe Earth's deepest lake - Lake Baikal in Russia.
