A surprise find of blue wine in the washing up opened up a world of chemistry in the kitchen.
Turns out red wine and purple cabbage show amazing colours as you change their acidity. They are acid-base indicators, due to chemicals called anthocyanins.
I had the honour to interview David Reitze, one of the leaders in gravitational wave physics, when he visited Canberra earlier this year.
Bit surprised he wasn’t one of the Nobel laureates… but anyway, ahead of the exciting announcement tomorrow, (what have they found this time?!), here’s the interview.
And for those who just want the highlights:
Some lovely footage of superconductors weaving their magical levitation spell
One from the archives from Eurofusion.
If you’re lazy like me then putting the washing away is like the Geiger-Marsden experiment.

It’s not like we planned this out very well…
Every and then you strike gold at a garage sale. When I found a lazy susan, I knew it was flame tornado time! So good to have a mate like Eduardo to help me build it.
Just realised I have never posted the Exploding Yoghurt video, back where it all began. Such nice camera work David Wong!
News from the UK today that new tokamak ST-40 has been turned on, so I thought I’d post a little explainer about how fusion works.
Dr Ayana Arce is part of a team that does experiments at the Large Hadron Collider, looking for evidence for the fifth dimension.
