the promotional booklet and the
- 18/06/2016: Today's Science Show is all about H.G. Wells, the
author who imaged a
future based on scientific achievement. It's wonderful, with rarely-heard audio recordings of Wells, so if nothing else tune in for that! It
includes a brief chat between the amazing Sharon Carleton and Andrew, that touches on death rays, Tasmania, the Maxwell-Heaviside equations, and Imperialism.

The path to perfection: Quantum dots in electrically-controlled
cavities yield bright, nearly identical photons. It was prompted by our recent Nature Photonics paper, but is more wide ranging than that, and has heaps of
thoughtful observations from Pascale. If you're interested in quantum dots or photon sources, go read it now!
