The printed jet engine
, pain relief from tarantula venom
, teaching stem cells to forget
, searching for dark matter in a gold mine
, better bread
, and a new Pony Express
. These are some of the highlights of the past year featured in Stories of Australian Science 2015.
And we have a special feature on Australia–Japan collaboration
: how researchers are collaborating on malaria
, neutron beams
and much more.
Around the world lives are being transformed by Australian ideas: the bionic ear; the cervical cancer vaccine Gardasil; chewing gum that repairs teeth; the astronomical ideas that have made wi-fi fast and reliable; and dozens of mining technologies.
