It was 'Dial-a-Scientist' Sunday. Topics covered were: "What 10 people alive today would you take on an inter-stellar journey to start a new world?" and "What is your favourite internal organ?" We also heard vox pop interviews with some "happy" medical scientists on their favourite internal organs. Other stories were how NASA is attempting to study mysterious noctilucent clouds, a potential new cystic fibrosis treatment derived from an algal toxin and bacteria that can hold their breath for a very long time.

From finding awe in Hubble images to visiting the doctor, science is everywhere in our lives. Whether we wear a white lab coat or haven't seen a test tube since eighth grade, science affects and changes us. We all have a story about science, and at The Story Collider, we want to hear those stories.
