So what happens when something goes wrong with it? Can we replace our noses? Learn more in this week’s Question Your World Radio Report from the Science Museum of Virginia.

Question Your World: What Does Water on Mars Mean for the Future?

After years of looking at extremely distant landscapes via photos and taking many guesses as to why Mars has the landscape it does, we finally have a little bit of the answer. Turns out that the Curiosity rover has scooped up some soil and identified water! So, what does water on Mars mean for the future? Learn more in this week’s Question Your World Radio Report from the Science Museum of Virginia.

Question Your World: Did an Island Just Pop-up Out of Nowhere?

Sometimes the Earth needs to readjust itself. When this happens we experience some pretty massive geological activity. Recently a large quake happened and changed a part of the Pakistan coastline. So, can an earthquake really just cause an island to pop up out of nowhere? Learn more in this week’s Question Your World Radio Report from the Science Museum of Virginia.

Question Your World: Could Humans Use Photosynthesis?

The race for the most efficient way to power our planet is happening right now. There are many options ranging from wind to nuclear to hydro power. Sometimes science has to turn to nature for inspiration, after all trees have been using solar energy to survive for millions upon millions of years. Could humans use photosynthesis to power our lives? Learn more in this week’s Question Your World Radio Report from the Science Museum of Virginia.

Question Your World: Can We Print Organs?

Consider the history of printing. From very early fragile letters to recent developments in modern printing, this technological journey is pretty remarkable. Modern day printers are pushing the limits of both technology and biological research. So, can they print organs yet? Learn more in this week’s Question Your World Radio Report from the Science Museum of Virginia.

Question Your World: What Exactly is the Hyperloop?

Transportation has been a huge part of humanity. Initially we moved out of Africa and into all corners of the world, then we started to connect locations better by taming animals, building ships, trains, cars, planes, and we’ve even been to the moon! So, it’s no surprise that transportation’s evolution continues on with the unveiling of the Hyperloop. So, what exactly is the Hyperloop? Find out in this week’s Question Your World Radio Report from the Science Museum of Virginia.

Question Your World: Could the Moon Impact Our Sleep?

Without the moon life on Earth would be vastly different. This celestial neighbor has a significant impact on the tides on our planet, which in turn are linked together with a ton of various functions here. Humans are 75% water, so could the moon have an impact on our lives? Check out the latest Question Your World Radio Report from the Science Museum of Virginia.

Question Your World: Can We Plant Fake Memories?

What happened to you yesterday? What did you learn? Our lives are built moment by moment and our memory is what allows us to understand the past and continue to operate in the present. So, what happens if your oldest memories get totally replaced? What if we can plant fake memories? Find out what this week’s Question Your World Radio Report from the Science Museum of Virginia has to say about it.
