Summary GENE EDITING MADE SIMPLE</br>CRISPR is a powerful gene-editing technique that is transforming the field of genetics. Faster, easier and cheaper than previous gene modification methods, the dream of treating cancer or curing hereditary gene diseases is one step closure. However, with the power to change DNA come ethical implications. CRISPR gives us the ability to alter the evolution of an entire species. Scientists are excited but are aware that they need to be careful how they use this revolutionary gene editing tool.</br></br>IS THERE LIFE ON MARS</br>Graham Phillips goes into the desert on a meteorite hunt. The reason is to investigate the question humanity's been asking for centuries: is there life on Mars? A group of Monash University geologists believe the insides of meteorites make great habitats for microbes. Just as Earth bugs live inside our space rocks, they believe Martian microbes could be living in the meteorites on Mars
