    Graphene Membranes offer hope for the future


    We live on an ocean planet!  While this may be a revelation for some, it should be no surprise.  Nearly 71% of the surface of our world is covered by oceans, rivers, lakes and ice. Yet, despite this vast amount of water, only about 1% of this water is accessible as fresh water.

    What I think I know: Prof. Michael Corballis, Rutherford Medal winner 2016


    In late November this year, several shining lights of science in New Zealand were honoured at the Royal Society of New Zealand’s Research Honours award ceremony. The most prestigious of these awards is the Rutherford Medal, which this year went to Emeritus Professor Michael Corballis ONZM FRSNZ of the University of Auckland, in recognition of his life’s work exploring the mysteries of the human mind. Jaylan Boyle caught up with Professor Corballis for a fascinating conversation on the organ that’s home to fascination.
