    โ€œIs This a Good Idea?โ€ - Life Lab, Pt. 3

    So far in Life Lab, weโ€™ve uncovered the power of synthetic biology. But with great power comes great responsibility! In this episode, weโ€™ll ask โ€œIs this a good idea?โ€ when it comes to changing the DNA of mosquitoes to fight a deadly virus.

    This episode features Dr. Sam Weiss Evans and his 8 year old daughter, Izzy Weiss Evans.

    Hear more from Sam about modified mosquitoes and making decisions about science, in our bonus interview episode! Theyโ€™re available to Tumble Patrons who pledge just a dollar or more a month, on patreon.com/tumblepodcast.

    You can find a transcript and other educational materials about this episode on the blog on our website, sciencepodcastforkids.com.

    Season 8 of Tumble begins September 16 with a special, five-part series called โ€œLife Lab.โ€ Life Lab will explore the incredible power of a new technology you probably havenโ€™t heard of. This technology could solve some of the biggest challenges on our planet, and beyond. But with great power, comes great responsibility. Weโ€™ll be asking important questions about whether it could - or should - change our future.

    Bonus: Life Lab will be released weekly, for five weeks! After that, weโ€™ll return to our regular schedule of science discovery, every other week.

    The Biggest Space Telescope in the Universe (UPDATE!)

    The Biggest Space Telescope in the Universe (UPDATE!)

    Hear sounds created from images by NASA's James Webb Space Telescope, in this updated episode! The biggest space telescope in the universe had a busy summer, wowing us with incredible images of the cosmos like we've never seen before. But it took a lot of work to get there! Learn about it in this episode, originally released in December 2021.

    Hear more Webb sound here.ย 

    Watch the launch here.ย 

    See Webb's first images here.

    How do you launch the largest space telescope ever built into space? The James Webb Space Telescope will travel 1.5 million miles away from Earth to help answer some of our biggest questions about the universe. But first, it has to be launched on a rocket - and the telescope is too big to fit on a rocket. So NASA decided to fold it up - and then unfold it in space. How? NASA scientist Knicole Colรณn and NASA engineer Alphonso Stewart take us on a journey through the worldโ€™s biggest origami project.

    We have big news to share about Season 8 next week, so keep your ears out for the trailer!ย
