Trust is everything.
Politicians are always being told to trust what climate scientists are telling them. But can you have too much of a good thing? What happens when the exchange of ideas becomes too cosy?
Frost affected many crops across WA during September 2016.

We already know that climate change makes heatwaves hotter and longer. But a new series of research papers asks whether there is also a climate fingerprint on frosty spells and bouts of wet weather.
Is Bitcoin a bubble?
If Bitcoin is a bubble, it will be because its price rises are too great and can't continue. If it isn't, it will be because the Bitcoin market is still expanding. We just don't know which one yet.
Demand is growing for aged care workers in regional areas and so policymakers should be focused on this rather than manufacturing jobs.
Growth in high-skilled jobs is highest in Australian cities and for the country its low-skilled jobs.
CSIRO Parkes radio telescope has discovered around half of all known pulsars.
In mid 1967, PhD student Jocelyn Bell at Cambridge University was helping to build a telescope. She went on to discover a little bit of "scruff" - the first evidence of a pulsar.
Permintaan dunia kerja atas “people skill” atau kemampuan berkait dengan hubungan antarmanusia, seperti komunikasi, semakin meningkat.
Teknologi digital mengubah dunia kerja. Apakah keterampilan sains, teknologi, teknik, dan matematika (STEM) lebih diminati pemberi kerja? Riset menjawab tidak.
High level interpersonal and problem solving skills are what will make you employable in a digital world.
Despite the hype about STEM skills, research shows interpersonal, problem-solving and entrepreneurial skills will make you more employable in the 21st century.
The price of Bitcoin has slumped after a failure to agree on a new direction.
The price of Bitcoin has declined significantly in the past couple of days, after rising 1,850% in the past two years. Here are four reasons why.
The growth in global carbon emissions has resumed after a three-year pause.

After three years in which global carbon emissions scarcely rose, 2017 has seen them climb by 2%, as the long-anticipated peak in global emissions remains elusive.
Human activity, along with a strong El Nino, drove 2016 greenhouse gas levels to new heights.

Global greenhouse gas levels have hit their highest point in at least 3 million years, according to new figures from the World Meteorological Organisation.
Carbon dioxide flux over China, measured by NASA’s Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 satellite.
New data from a NASA satellite show in unprecedented detail the flow of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Future satellites should even be able to detect the signatures of individual power stations.
If you’re handling big datasets, it’s important to think about user privacy.
Every government, business or organisation releasing data needs to think about how to ensure that the risk of re-identifying an individual or revealing personal information about someone is low.
Business as usual is not an option.
A new CSIRO roadmap outlines the options for oil and gas companies to keep pace with the clean energy transition, including solar-powered hydrogen fuel production.
The extent of future coral bleaching is likely to vary from place to place.

Regional variations in sea temperature can make all the difference between a coral reef suffering major bleaching or surviving as a refuge for corals, new research shows.
Perth has long had many fine parks but is losing vegetation cover in a band of increasingly dense development across the city.
A new study shows major Australian cities are suffering an overall loss of green space –
although some areas are doing better than others.
NovaSAR-S will image Earth in all weather conditions, both day and night (computer generated image).
Australia will be able to guide the Earth observation satellite "NovaSAR" as it passes over our region - giving us a new level of control over the data we need to solve local problems.
An illustration of Cassini as it plunges into Saturn’s atmosphere.
The last signals from Cassini space probe before it burns up in Saturn's atmosphere will tracked by the Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex.
Clouds over Australia’s Davis Research Station, containing ice particles that activate ozone-depleting chemicals, triggering the annual ozone hole.
The treaty to limit the destruction of the ozone layer is hailed as the most successful environmental agreement of all time. Three decades on, the ozone layer is slowly but surely returning to health.
Both Voyager spacecraft are only in communication with Earth via a Canberra tracking station.
The Voyager space probes sent back some amazing images of the planets in the outer Solar System, and they're still talking to Earth every day via Australia's tracking station.
Those who got advice from the online calculator in the study showed a small, but statistically significant, increase in trust towards robo-advice.
Robo-advice might prove most useful to those who need it the most, making them feel more competent and in control.
