          Courtesy: http://www.fistchat.com Hosted and Produced by Stephan Kern & Ben Warner. National Science Week was held in Australia between 10-18 August in a bid to help promote science and technology to the public. Recent studies have shown that the level of interest in science in the general community is much higher than expected, and in some circles, is more discussed than sport. Steve and Ben discuss the importance of keeping the public interested in science and technology. Also on the show, spy cameras and secret audio help fight movie piracy, Egyptian artefacts came from outer space, and how an astronaut tells of his spacewalk terror where he almost drowned in his suit.

                  Ants know the quickest way to get to where they want to go through a complicated network. This is why scientists, such as Dr Dan Angus, study nature to find solutions to difficult problems in our everyday lives - like getting the trains to run on time.

                    Dr Daniel Angus explains how he is analyzes communication of ideas to see how close people's thoughts are positioned in a "conceptual space". If they are close then there is good communication. If their ideas are far away from each other then they are not understanding each other very well at all. He is on the University of Queensland team which is building robots called iRats or Lingo Droids that talk to each other and learn to navigate using their brain to map a map of the terrain - a maze.

                      UQ's iRats have brains that map their own world - they don't need GPS. They make dates with each other - well, they can agree to meet somewhere after they map their world. And they are able to interact with people via mobile phones. Curiosity is a good thing discovered a couple of Year 2 students from Sherwood State Primary School who heard UQ research fellow Dr Daniel Angus and speculative fiction author-scientist Charlotte Nash on the topic, Does Sci-Fi Inspire Science, at the National Science Week Ekka Pavilion. It was their questions which inspired Dr Dan to bring UQ's robots to visit their class which was designing robots for an assignment.
