Mapping the Deep with Neville Exon on Fuzzy

We've had some great guests on Fuzzy. A couple that come to mind are Dr Robert Street OBE, who was involved with the very first nuclear reactor in Harwell Great Britain in 1946, and Robert Rapier international energy expert. We also got to rub shoulders with the ABC science television crew, and interview the Bush Tucker Man, Les Hiddens. Sadly that recording was not useable due to extraneous noise. Paul Willis, et al chatting in the background.

Last Sunday (14 June) we presented Neville Exon talking about drilling deep cores from ship platforms. Boring a hole that far into the earth from a ship swinging on the ocean is no mean feat. And learning about the geologic past of our planet could hardly be more pressing at a time when we're wondering about our future.

When we can, we podcasts Fuzzy, but we can't always do it. We may have missed this one, but you can catch Neville when he appears on Radio National's Marine Science program on Background Briefing. Never mind, we got there first.

Keep an ear out for Neville on 28 June.
