A team of fluid mechanics researchers at Princeton University dive into the anti-sloshing physics of foam.
In this segment, we'll talk with one of the authors of a new scientific study about genetics and beer, and about the genes behind lager beer styles such as Pilsners, Märzen, Dortmunders, and Bocks. Cheers!
Yeast, hops, grain, water, biology, chemistry, and physics, all go into making a great glass of beer.
Researchers devised a recipe for improving beer foam.
In this special holiday rebroadcast, we travel to Milwaukee, Wisconsin to find out about the science behind lagers, ales, and porters. Raise a glass to the science of brewing!

\tWith its heavy outer shell, weak vision, and primitive brain, the nautilus lacks much of the excitement of the more flashy and cunning cephalopods. Yet a series of experiments by evolutionary biologists Dr. Jennifer Basil and Robyn Crook involving fish juice, blue lights, and mazes dispels the notion that this ancient species is incapable of basic learning and throws into question the origins of cephalopods' intellectual prowess.
