Question Your World: Which New Material Was Just Invented?

From caves and mammoth skin tents to our asphalt-paved plastic and steel world, our relationships to materials have greatly impacted the way we live. Every now and then a new material is produced that changed the world. Since we build upon the knowledge of the past there is no doubt that a new material will eventually replace an existing one. So, which new material was just invented? Listen to this Question Your World radio report produced by the Science Museum of Virginia to find out.

Question Your World: Who's Doing Something about Renewable Energy?

There are about four people born every single second. As our growing population's energy needs grows, the more we will need clean, reliable, and sustainable energy to power our future. So, who’s doing something about renewable energy? Listen to this Question Your World radio report produced by the Science Museum of Virginia to find out.

Question Your World: Is There Water On Mars?

On September 28, 2015, NASA scientists announced there is currently liquid water flowing on the surface of Mars. This opens the door to a myriad of other questions and thoughts. We’ve yet to send humans to the red planet nor do we have tangible proof of liquid water, so how do we know there is water on Mars? Listen to this Question Your World radio report produced by the Science Museum of Virginia to find out.

Question Your World: Can Life Exist on Moons?

In the vastness of space there are huge galactic clusters, super-sized galaxies, massive black holes, and gigantic planets. Perhaps living on a relatively small planet impacts our take on moons. These natural satellites serve pretty important purposes, but we rarely think of them as important research destinations. Perhaps that will change when we start asking questions like can life exist on moons? Listen to this Question Your World radio report produced by the Science Museum of Virginia to find out.

Question Your World: Can We Be Allergic to Wi-Fi Signals?

As we progress and change the world around us, our bodies have to adjust to these changes as well. For example, before the advent of certain cosmetics no one had allergic reactions to them. Once they were invented some people started to notice they don’t do well with those chemicals interacting with their skin. Currently, most of our advancement is in the digital and technical world. One of the biggest breakthroughs in recent times is the advent of Wi-Fi technology. Can we be allergic to Wi-Fi signals?

Question Your World: How Eco-Friendly Can Cars Get?

Humanity can’t seem to sit still. From our earliest days in Africa to now we have always been on the move. In modern times there is no greater symbol for our mobility than the car. However, with the growing population and energy needs, how eco-friendly can cars get? Listen to this Question Your World radio report produced by the Science Museum of Virginia to find out.

Question Your World: How Many Photos Have Ever Been Taken?

Birthday parties, graduations, engagements, and most other milestones in our life get captured by photograph. The camera has revolutionized how we as a species document things, ranging from scientific purpose to simple a selfie with a friend at lunch. These days most people have access to a camera and the amount of photos we take is getting larger daily. So, how many photos have ever been taken? Listen to this Question Your World radio report produced by the Science Museum of Virginia to find out.

Question Your World: How Fast Can Cities Grow?

One of the defining traits of humanity is our social nature. Living and working together has been a large factor in our survival. For thousands of years we’ve been living together in cities. As technology increases so does the size and scope of our cities. How fast can cities grow? Listen to this Question Your World radio report produced by the Science Museum of Virginia to learn more.

Question Your World: Why Do Scientists Study History?

In an ever changing world of newer and newer technology, the past sometimes seems very irrelevant. However, sometimes things that took place in the past serve as an amazing resource to help tackle tomorrow’s concerns. Why do scientists study history?
