This week on Post Everything…

This week, Ali Lopez hosted a packed show with some innovative stories happening in Victoria and at UVic that have an impact almost all around the world. She talked with Francois Gervais from NEPTUNE Canada about NEPTUNE Canada’s first Marine Field Guide. This innovative guide features deep-sea species observed through cameras on the sea floor and from various expeditions.

Check out the video below for a look at the Marine Field Guide!

The Marine Field Guide is also available as an IPad App and as a PDF file through NEPTUNE’s website, www.neptunecanada.ca/fieldguide.

Next, Ali chatted with Dr. Rodney Herring, the Laboratory Director at the Advanced Microscopy Facility and an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. UVic is now home to the world’s most powerful microscope. The Scanning Transmission Electron Holography Microscope (STEHM) was built for UVic in Japan by Hitachi High Technologies Canada and uses an electron beam and holography techniques to observe the inside of materials and their surface.

Check out a video and photo of the microscope below:

Lastly, Ali chatted with Russ Robb about the Transit of Venus, a once in a lifetime phenomenon that occurred early last week. We featured a special blog post about this event that you can check out below.
