Welcome to my blog on some of the latest and greatest scientific breakthroughs and innovations, mainly from researchers at Newcastle University and colleagues. My name is Brett Cherry. I am a writer, or some would say ‘hack’, fascinated by science and technology. In this blog I will explore new scientific ideas, findings and the practical aspects of scientific and engineering disciplines. I will report to you from ‘behind the scenes’ of science and engineering in the making, hopefully in an at least mildly entertaining way. You can subscribe to this blog here.
