EPISODE DESCRIPTION

Broadcast 10/03/2011 on 103.2 Dublin City FM

PIC: 'Buzz Aldrin' pictured on the Moon, July 1969 by Neil Armstrong. Putting men on the Moon was a tremendous technical achievement, but is space exploration worth the effort & resources put into it? [Credit: NASA]

 WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT? The Human Genome Project. What is it? and how will it change our lives? Tommie McCarthy, UCC, explains.

THE QUESTION IS? Is space exploration worth all the time, effort and resources put into it? We ask Irish European Space Agency engineer, James Geary, who has worked on several exploration projects. 

WRITERS' ROOM We talk to Wallace Arthur, Professor of Zoology, NUI Galway, and author of 'Evolution, A Developmental View', who has a different 'take' on evolution.
