Segment #4. Science or Fiction
Each week our host will come up with three science news items or facts, two genuine, one fictitious. He will challenge our panel of skeptics to sniff out the fake – and you can play along.
#1) Astronomers have discovered a pulsar that is 100 times brighter than theories predict a pulsar can be.
#2) Scientists have dated cave art in Indonesia to 40,000 years ago, older than any known art in Europe where it was previously thought to first develop.
#3) Anatomists have, for the first time, positively identified the structures responsible for vaginal orgasm in women.
Segment #5. Skeptical Quote of the Week
“The journalistic tradition so exalts novelty and flashy discovery, as reputable and newsworthy, that standard accounts for the public not only miss the usual activity of science but also, and more unfortunately, convey a false impression about what drives research.”
Stephen J. Gould
