Dr Shane, Dr Alicia, Dr Krystal and Danger Mouse are very excited about National Science Week the NASA Curiosity Rover's imminent arrival on Mars, but meantime they talk about the Hendra virus, fossilised tropical vegetation in Antarctica, patient-monitoring tattoos, and whether birds radiate body heat from their beaks. The team chat to Dr Erich Fitzgerald, paleontologist with Museum Victoria, about the discovery of the first Australian fossils of bizarre giant bony-toothed birds in Beaumaris; Danger Mouse brings us up-to-speed on differences in speech capabilities across primate species; and Dr Krystal presents her Science Book Report:My Beautiful Genome by Lone Frank,Sentinel Chickens: What Birds Tell Us About Our Health And Our World by Professor Peter Doherty and The Geek Manifesto by Mark Henderson.
