SciEye Espies the Naked Scientists

SciEye has previously visited the Science Friday NPR radio show.  The other great science radio show in the SciLands is the UK’s The Naked Scientists.  Every Sunday at 10 AM SLTime, the show takes questions from its real-life audience and its Second Life audience during one segment.  My personal favorite is their Kitchen Science feature; this last Sunday, they implosively crushed a soda can by heating water in it to boiling, then immersing it in water.  *>!CRUSH!<*

SciEye’s 1st stop in my tour of the SciLands is the epynomous Science Friday island.

Science Friday is a wide-ranging weekly science news and interviews radio show on, yes, Fridays back in RL (Real Life). Join us in Second Life at 11am SLT!

Here’s larger versions of the same 3 photos of the SL version of the show at FlickR.  [update Jan 18th – I’ve added 5 pics of the 3rd home island show as well.]  I can’t offer a tour of Science Friday island yet, because the terraforming landshapers and exhibit builders are still designing on this newly-birthed island.   Here’s the archived podcast of the first Science Friday show co-hosted in RL & SL: Virtual Worlds, Virtual Lives, broadcast on Friday August 31st, 2007.  All of their shows are archived at their website.

The SciEye column’s next SciLands stop is Mars, in Exploratorium.  I’ve gotten word that an asteroid is inbound …
